"I started writing in 2002, it was when I was working in the injection moulding department of a factory that I had the Idea to write, The Second Prophecy (wasn't called that then). I was on my lunch break and as it was night shift, I was on my own in the canteen, when the thought of the character of John Stark came to me. I have always had a great imagination, so I spent the second half of the eight hour shift adding to the idea for the character, and when I got home I sat down in front of my computer and started writing."

"I took a long break after writing my novel. It was mainly because I couldn't find a publishing company to take it on, although I got good reviews from everyone who read it. Even the son of my English tutor, who I have never met(the son, not the English tutor). The truth is, I lost heart that I would get it published through conventional means. Then I read about Amazon letting people publish their work for free, and thought I would try it, which lead to me finding my new home here on Smashwords."

"I Have more than a few ideas for more stories, and I'm looking forward to writing and publishing them all."
