... and receive a free gift if you register, as a thank you for being interested in my work.

I've published four books on Amazon, three of which reached #1 in their categories.

Born in 1963, I grew up in Gateshead, Tyne and Wear, U.K. I dropped out of school and only obtained 5 'O' levels. I got myself back on track five years later when I went to college at Brighton Polytechnic studying Mathematics and Computing and much later studying a Masters degree in Autonomous System, for which I received a merit. I've been in software development for 26 years.

I run two writing groups in Brighton (UK), a ukulele group and produce local publications. I continue to work full time.

Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I was born in Gateshead and lived in and around Newcastle until I was 23. People from Northern England have a distinctive accent, called Geordie, which seems persistent since I have lived away from the North-East for 30 years and it is still pronounced. So, my heritage is never far away. I came from quite a poor background with a lively political arena, grew up in the 60-70's when scientific progress was literally rocketing, and my teen years very attached to hippy and rock ideals. I think this be an obvious spawning ground for a science fiction/fantasy writer.
What's the story behind your latest book?
My work in progress is about a generational star-ship. It's an epic because each episode (which are currently novella length) occurs one hundred years before the next. The format gives me great scope to explore a huge amount of ideas. I'm very excited about where it will lead me. The first 'age' is just about complete.
