Terence Gibbons

Biography

I have been writing seriously for many years having some success with BBC Radio Humberside who broadcast some of my short stories. I have lived a very complete life having done many things others don't have a chance to do. This, together with my avid reading habit, have served to provide me with knowledge of the world which is a great tool to a writer. Having said this, I still maintain that a writer worth his salt should do thorough research and not try to rely on his own experiences alone. I am rapidly approaching pension age now but my hunger to write has if anything increased. Who knows what the future has in store for me?
