I currently live in Harrogate, UK with my Italian wife, British daughter and Israeli cat where I enjoy writing science fiction/fantasy, young adult novels, and children’s books. Examples range from the fun superhero stories of the Altered Destiny Saga to, as yet unpublished, near future SF noire, pre-apocalyptic YA, and far future adventure.

I've recently founded Promoting Yorkshire Authors, a group dedicated to developing tools and resources for self- and Indie-published authors to use in promoting their books.

When not writing or publishing, or thinking about writing and publishing, I volunteer at local primary schools where I share my children’s stories and my love of technology.

That is, I tend to have a vague notion of what the entire picture looks like, but I lack resolution of the finer details. So I tend to write the sections that come to me most easily, then go back and fill in the pieces between. This usually helps me keep the momentum going.

Even so, I still stall from time to time. When this happens I do one of two things. Either I go back to my notes and see if there's some considerations I've forgotten or overlooked that could be used, or I just muscle it through. I force myself to write something, some general structure of what I'd like to happen in that part with the realization that I'll make it better each time I come back to it.(less)
Edwin H. Rydberg Write. Write lots, write often, write whenever you can. And read your own writing with a critical eye, always looking to improve.

Walter M. Miller Jr.
“The closer men came to perfecting for themselves a paradise, the more impatient they became with it, and with themselves as well. They made a garden of pleasure, and became progressively more miserable with it as it grew in richness and power and beauty; for then, perhaps, it was easier to see something was missing in the garden, some tree or shrub that would not grow. When the world was in darkness and wretchedness, it could believe in perfection and yearn for it. But when the world became bright with reason and riches, it began to sense the narrowness of the needle's eye, and that rankled for a world no longer willing to believe or yearn.”
Walter M. Miller Jr., A Canticle for Leibowitz
