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


So far September has been warmer than August. Not that I have taken advantage of this as some evil lurgy has infected my throat. I am not sure what it is, but it certainly isn't a frog. This has resulted in coughing bouts and loss of voice, particularly in the evenings. For about three weeks. I have tried all the over the counter meds I can get hold of, and although some things get better, the... Read more of this blog post »

The Tale of the Comet (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
1 chapters   —   updated Dec 21, 2011 12:04PM
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?
The Friendly Ambassador: The Beginning of the End (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
1 chapters   —   updated Dec 21, 2011 12:01PM
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.
In the Shadow of Mountains: The Lost Girls (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
1 chapters   —   updated Nov 28, 2011 04:59PM
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.
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.
In the Shadow of Mountains: The Return of the Sixpack (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
1 chapters   —   updated Nov 28, 2011 04:48PM
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...
