About The Author
Where did you grow up?
I was brought up in the north of England. Until eight, I lived in Droylsden near Manchester, then my parents move to Frodsham. At the time, Frodsham was just a small village. It is now much larger as new housing estates grew up.
Tell us your latest news?
A few weeks ago, I made the big decision to retire. I am now concentring on my writing but it is still a hobby. The big excitement is I have been invited to Comic Com in Liverpool in November. Hopefully, I will speak to readers there, interest them in by books and hopefully convert them to loyal fans.
When and why did you begin writing?
I began writing fiction following the 2005 publication of his first book, a technical tome about domestic building surveys. As technical writing was a success, I decided to write science fiction, but my first attempts ended up in the bin.(reference files on my computer)
Do you have writing goals?
My late mother said on several occasions, “You’ll never write anything. You haven’t got an imagination.” I hope she wasn’t right. Five sci-fi books and a novel published, and I can feel another one coming on!
I am hoping to increase my readership by going to events like Comic Com. See above.
