Biography

I grew up in the 80's to 00's, during the heady days of terrestrial TV sci-fi. Long-running cult series, combined with re-runs of kitsch 70's shows, ensured I spent my evenings permanently glued to the TV. This had a profound effect on my fertile imagination, and it wasn't long before strange, strong-willed characters were evolving in my mind, clamouring to have their stories told. I ignored them, and somehow managed to get a BSc in marine biology, and a MSc in Marine Mammal Science. But now I've finally given in to the voices, and I'm simply along for the ride....

Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
Pretty much when I was in single digits. I loved to write stories and poems when I was a kid, and I even got a poem published in a book when I was around 12 or 13. But as I got older, my interest in science superseded it, and my writing became a distant memory as I concentrated on A-levels, degrees, and jobs. I rediscovered my passion when I became unemployed, and once again had the time to focus on the words. I don't write as often as I'd like these days (university studies and volunteer work get in the way a bit) but I'm still plugging away at my third novel.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
It was predominantly a control issue. I wanted to be able to tell the story I had in my head my way. Plus it took the pressure off having to persuade a publisher to accept my manuscript.

These days, due to other commitments, I don't have much time for writing, so it's nice not to have to deal with the stress of deadlines that would inevitably come from having a publisher riding my back (that is if I was able to get one in the first place).
