When I was very young, I can vividly recall staring with fascination at the picture on the cover of a book my father was reading. I asked him what the book was about and he looked at me before saying "If you want to know what it's about, then read it." So I did.
That was the start of my fascination with books. While friends would be out playing football, I would be inside reading. I had discovered a rich and varied realm of imagination.
Since that very first book I have rarely stopped reading for pleasure, yet as I grew older I realised that I wanted to share my own worlds, my own imagined adventures. I wanted to write my own stories.
Which brings me to the present and my very first book, hopefully the first of many. I have always preferred Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror and I intend to take a look at these genres and more while I find my feet and learn more of the art of writing and telling a good story.
I live in England with my youngest daughter and a vicious beast of a cat that my children lovingly call "Squeak."
