I have been writing, on and off, since the age of 16, and currently reside near Bristol, in the UK. When I’m not writing or reading, I enjoy hiking and fishing.
I started writing Floating Hair in 1996, wrote about 60 pages, became disillusioned with writing (8 previous novels unpublished), and stopped. Picked up the 60 pages in 2009, spent 3 years turning it into a full-length novel, but attracted precisely zero interest from agents and publishers. Rewrote it 2019-21, and finally self-published.
