Born a war baby in 1942, I grew up in Bristol in the United Kingdom. Although I am now 71 years young, I still enjoy one of the trinkets of my childhood, it always was my all-time favourite, science fiction - obviously! Although remaining dormant for forty years, it was the Eagle comic I think that put me on the road to becoming a science fiction writer, but it was H.G.Wells (among many) that really fired my imagination. I have two younger brothers that I remember were constantly cajoled into being nasty aliens, so that I could eliminate them with my trusty (now rusty) ray gun! We grew up with a passion for motor bikes, my fathers fault, he also had a passion them, my poor mother, she was outnumbered four to one! Strangely I didn't take up writing seriously until I was 52, when a nightmare of cataclysmic proportions impressed itself on my conscious mind to the point where I wrote it down on paper, that dream eventually became my first novel JET!, and the first of what has become a trilogy. Divorced ten years ago, I now have a lovely lady called Maria in Bristol, where my two beautiful daughters Emma and Hayley also live. Am I lucky? I also have four gorgeous grandchildren!
