I want to write stories that are short enough and simple enough to appeal to people that don't normally read because their attention gets distracted by playstations and internet porn and fluffy bunnies and things, but that also appeal to people who do love to read as much as I love to read. I also want to write b-movies in book form. Monster movies rule.
Gregory Gregyon is not my real name.
It'd be awesome if it was, though.

After leaving school I did a variety of jobs until redundancy threatened, at which point I escaped to university to do the degree I’d always wanted to do and discovered Tolkien’s academic work as well. As a (very) mature student I first acquired a BA in Medieval Studies, then followed it with an MPhil in Anglo-Saxon History. Old English remains a facination and one day - when and if I ever get the time - I'd really love to learn Old Welsh.
