A BIT ABOUT ME

An Impassioned Writer

Based in Bolton, Northwest England, I've written professionally since 2008. My novels and short stories have been published across multiple genres, but science fiction, more than any other, is in my DNA. Recurrent themes in my fiction include survival in alien environments, rebellious characters, and redemption against all the odds. My characters don't have it easy, but they do have some amazing tales to tell.

In my spare time I hike, cycle, or kayak whenever the weather permits. Vintage science fiction and adventure novels dominate by bookshelves, as well as historical fiction (big Patrick O'Brian fan!) and non-fiction history. Likewise, the majority of films in my collection tend to take place in the past or the future.

In 2011 I won the EPIC Award for Best Historical Fiction.
