Biography

June News:
In Brief - Pentalore The Forgotten Library and Darkseed Extended Editions.

As you will have already seen over the last nine months I have been busy creating the extended and ultimate editions of my books. I have just completed the reworking of the final two books in my collection with Pentalore The Forgotten Library and Darkseed adding adding over 66,000 words of new content across both books.
If you have bought these books before, all you need to do is go to the book and download the revised copy. It is free.

At this moment, this means this reworking project is over. Across all my books I have written over half a million words of new content available to all customers who have bought these books in the past.

I must say thank you to all those who have supported me during this epic rewrite. At this moment I will be returning to creating brand new books. At this moment I have Symbiotica with Spectres of Our Past, Pentalore Legends, Dystopian Detective The Kakoi Riddle and the first part of the Proteus Destiny Saga, Serendipity in the works. As these books are going to follow the novel format I don't know when they will be out but expect a return to regular releases over the summer.

Also, I am pleased to see that I am currently rated as a 4.5 out of 5.0 Author on Good Reads. Thank you to those who took the time! It is really good to see the appreciation my fans have and that does spur me on to do even better for you! If you have any questions I am on Good Reads so throw me your thoughts and I will be happy to answer!

Smashwords Interview

What do your fans mean to you?
My fans are perhaps a two edged sword. Some are a little scary at times, something which I think most authors and artists know about. However for the most part I find the whole fan experience is a positive one. In fact without one such fan pushing me to release my works, I would not be here.
They give me the motivation to carry on, to explore new idea and give me critique on my work and for that, I am eternally thankful.
Who are your favorite authors?
In no particular order my favourite authors are: Douglas Adams - one of the few writers who is fantastic at annoying your friends. Think about it. How many times do you burst out laughing randomly while quietly reading his work. John Vornholt who many years ago helped me get in to writing. James Herbert who taught me the essence of writing powerful character driven plots. From there, a few extra names. Dan Abnett, Pat Mills and Terry Pratchett
