I started writing in September 2016. I have written a number of short stories and have just finished writing my debut novel - A Young Man's Game, after becoming a finalist in the 2017 Pen to Print Book Challenge. A Young Man's Game will be published in 2018.
I was a late beginner to writing. I was failing an Open University degree in Information Technology, I just cannot get my head around programming languages, the structure, and the logic is fine, just the actual languages. I was running out of time to complete the degree so I changed to an Open Degree to give me a chance of gaining a grade. On a whim, I chose a Creative Writing module and found I really enjoyed it. I also seemed to be pretty good at it, which helps. I do struggle with grammar and punctuation though, so I apologise if I use too many or too few commas or semi-colons in my writing.
My favourite authors are (in no particular order): Neal Stephenson, Nick Harkaway, Cory Doctorow, David Morrell, Peter Clines, Stephen King, Dean Koontz, Tom Clancy, Michael Crichton, Michael Marshall Smith, Tom Rob Smith, Ernest Cline, and I hope one day to be able to produce a novel half as good as theirs.
I was born in 1975, am married to a beautiful and supportive wife Helen and have 3 boys aged 18, 6 and 3.
