The author resides on a beautiful island in the middle of the Irish Sea where he writes illegible scribbles on tatty scraps of paper for later translation.


Background Information

The major influence in me starting to write was the author David Gemmell. I wanted to write heroic fantasy like he does. Unfortunately, that never worked out as I kept wanting to insert humorous asides and comedic characters. The end result was humorous heroic fantasy. I got the best of both worlds. I had heroes, villains and quests to satisfy my creative side, and humour to satisfy my, er, creative side. Hmmmm. Must think of a better way to describe that. Anyway, something must have worked as I signed my first publishing contract in June 2002, resulting in my debut novel, Reluctant Heroes being released in February 2003.

Additional Information

My first novel, Reluctant Heroes, was re-released in 2007, closely followed by Cronan the Librarian in 2008. Both titles are humorous fantasy and were added to Amazon's Kindle list early 2011. I have also self-published another humorous tome entitled Bruvvers in Arms via Kindle. In November 2011 my occult based thriller, Of Light and Shadow, was released. This is the first in a three book series known as the Duncan Connors Trilogy. November 2013 is the anticipated date for book number two, working title 'Faith'. Inbetween times I have had a number of short stories published.
