When I was child, bedtime stories were down to my dad. In an effort keep himself sane, we quickly progressed from Puddle Lane and Thomas the Tank Engine to Terry Brooks and JRR Tolkien.
That, combined with a perpetual love of Star Trek (thanks again dad), has led to my joint loves of SciFi and Fantasy.
I was diagnosed with Dyslexia around the time I started school, and (despite my love of stories) didn't start actually reading until about the age of eight. Until then, audio-books were my gateway to the varied worlds of fiction.
I only started writing in earnest while I was at university (studying Archaeology), where I wrote a bunch of Star Trek stories (that will never see the light of day).
After realising that a career in archaeology would mean having to go outside, I retrained in IT Support, and moved into writing original fiction (no, you can't see that one either).
Now, several years, multiple stories , two successful NanoWriMos, and a lot of writing later,my debut novel Slave Mind is now out on amazon.
Thanks for reading and enjoy your stay.
