Gavin E Parker is from the Isle of Thanet in southern England, where he has lived and worked his whole life.
He has dabbled in creating music, film and video in the past and is currently writing novels, short stories and blogs.
Inspired by the rapidly expanding possibilities open to publishers in the twenty-first century, in 2014 Gavin set about writing his debut novel, Ephialtes. Ephialtes is the first of a trilogy of books chronicling the war between Earth and its former colony on Mars. A series of short stories - Ephialtes Shorts - set in the same fictional universe complements the main novel trilogy.
Having worked in healthcare, local government and education he has a mildly jaundiced view of the human condition, but still maintains good humour about it. Things could be worse, right?
