If you’ve glanced around my blog, you’ve probably noticed that I am a fairly prolific writer of fiction (and, when the mood strikes, poetry) across a wide range of genres. Though Sci-fi and Fantasy are my bread and butter, I like to experiment with other genres and styles. I’m always up for a challenge, and enjoy being pushed outside my comfort zone where writing is concerned. My list of favourite authors is topped by Philip K. Dick, Terry Pratchett and Jules Verne. I’m not very good at referring to myself in the third person in bios.
As well as writing, I hold down a full-time job in education, and enjoy more hobbies and interests than I can shake a space-stick at. These include horse riding, walking with my dogs, and getting out on my Kawasaki. I also play the saxophone and clarinet, and own various other instruments which I plan on one day learning to wield as deadly weapons of music. I hold a 4th Dan grade in the traditional Japanese art of Iaido, and in my spare time enjoy baking healthy, delicious home-made dog-cookies for my hounds.
I have a quirky sense of humour, for which I make no apologies.
