I'm a writer, artist, designer and musician, but not all at the same time. I live in Kent, UK.


Background Information

I was brought up in Devon and Somerset, counties in the West of England steeped in myth and magic. I have been writing fiction ever since I could hold a pen without throwing it across the room to see what noise it would make.

Early fiction seemed to consist of Chapter One of a novel. These attempts were slightly hampered by unimaginative teachers who insisted that telling a murder story from the point of view of the dead man wasn't possible. 'Dead men can't talk', they'd say. 'Have you seen the Prime Minister lately?' I'd ask.

Still, I carried on writing, and then defected to comic strips for a while. I lettered other people's work, and had a minor success with a monthly comic strip in a Naturist magazine, but it got too cold working in those conditions, so I moved back to fiction minus the pictures.

My influences are not with particular authors, although I did try and be funny in a Douglas Adams-like way, which ended on a Thursday (I never could get the hang of Thursdays).

Instead, I am influenced by subject matter and dreams. The effects of time travel interest me greatly, as do ancient myths. I rarely remember my dreams, though, so that influence is pretty much a dead end.

As is this part of my biography.

Accomplishments

My screenplay for a short film entitled 'Noon of the Solstice' won a highly commended certificate from the International Fantasy and Science Fiction Film festival.

Additional Information

My recently published book, Nostradormouse, is now on sale from lulu.com and amazon, with all my royalties being donated to BBC Children in Need appeal.
