About this author

I am English and in my forties and have been writing stories since school when I won a parker pen for being shortlisted in a national schools writing competition.

My particular genre of choice wanders around all over the place, but has mainly settled into humorous fantasy and science fiction (or at least I think they're humorous and some people who have kindly left reviews seem to agree).

During any spare time (of which there isn't much since I'm recently widowed and dealing with two children) I edit a website focussed on science fiction television at www.scififreaksite.com and a similar blog on the side.

I then try to cram in a few books on my kindle to read.

Darren Humphries Never had it, so can't really comment. It's more a case of so many story ideas, not enough writing time.

Mirth and merriment aplenty in Terry's latest, but somehow I felt it lacked something, like a point. Still, even middling Pratchett is a treat.
