About this author

I was born in Manchester in the North West of England in 1957. Although I have moved around a bit, Manchester is still both my physical and spiritual home. I am a Northerner. I am also married to Rosanna, and have been now for over twenty years. I have an imagination that began when I was very young and never waned. I also like reading and so it was no surprise I suppose when I started writing. Because I am an unknown who has never been picked up by either an Agent or mainstream Publisher, I am a bit of a one man band. I even do my own covers and have become a bit of a digital artist as a result. I started writing when I was young and very bad. Now I am older and a lot better. My writing has improved too. I write science fiction, fantasy an ...more


It seems strange that it is May and I am already looking forward to the one motor race in the world that counts for anything. Of course that isn't for a few weeks yet, and although I am getting inpatient I know it won't be long before I am sadly looking back at the event in July. They say time is relative and when I think back to my childhood and how long it took me to grow up and all the thing... Read more of this blog post »

The Tale of the Comet (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:33PM
Description: Chen-Soo is a super clone warrior woman bent on Galactic domination, but all she really wants is the love of her mother and father. It was a love that she lost on that fateful day. Then love appears in the form of Michael. But does she really need a mate now? And why does it have to be this adolescent boy with only a chocolate bar in one hand and his mother’s handbag in the other?
In the Shadow of Mountains: The Lost Girls (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:33PM
Description: Several contemporary teenagers are accidentally transported to another world to face aliens, Knights in armour, ancient technology and, yes, a very nasty but ever so hungry and talky dragon.
In the Shadow of Mountains: The Return of the Sixpack (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:33PM
Description: A very long sequel to The Lost Girls. In this story the girls have grown up to be badder than ever. Robbing tombs might be fun, but having an angry witch and the entire Sullenfeld Hordes trying to skin you can be a downer. Mind you, bumping into the General you once went to school with could be worse...
The Friendly Ambassador: The Beginning of the End (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:33PM
Description: The Friendly Ambassador is a four part galactic epic that mixes Science-Fiction with Greek Mythology, taking a different approach to the legend of Atlantis, the origination of the Amazons, and the true nature of mythical creatures such as the Cyclops and Centaurs as aliens from other worlds. The story is set on Atlantian Earth, on board various ships in space, and on the far off world of Eden. It is full of rich characters, monsters and hardware, but it is packaged in a totally different way to anything that’s been done before.
The Happy Eater (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
1 chapters   —   updated Nov 28, 2011 04:52PM
Description: A science fiction short story for Christmas. A Yultide black comedy of sorts.

“Never grow old gracefully. Hang on to your childish nature and fight tooth and nail to the very last laugh. You won’t get another chance.”
David George Richards, In the Shadow of Mountains: The Return of the Sixpack

“Do you think it will be that easy, Corp?”
“As easy as it can be to lug a nuclear bomb down a giant-sized worm-hole with a Keruh Warrior and a quantity of angry alien clone-women-things waiting at the other end.”
“So you’re looking forward to it then, Corp?”
“Wouldn’t miss it for the world!”
David George Richards, The Friendly Ambassador: Walking with the Enemy
