I am the son of the poet and author Shänne Sands.
I started writing when I was 22, got my first agent when I was 27.
I have written for children, epic fantasy, plays for radio and essays as well as a few poems. I genuinely don't like cities very much and live in a village in Cornwall, UK.

I am always open to being asked questions.

I was in a small gallery today with an educator and saw a whole room with the ceiling decorated in the poster size paintings by children from local schools – the affect was to feel as if it were a cave. I then went a major gallery, The Exchange, in Penzance and saw the same style in their main show – only in oils and on a much larger scale and thankfully without anything being on the ceiling.

A Brief History Of Lies (Nonfiction)
1 chapters   —   updated Feb 19, 2010 08:17AM
Description: A survey of a wicked, irreverent, serious, harmful, cruel and enjoyable (for some) side of human civilization. Including quotes on lies and lying (good, bad and indifferent) from famous people who should know better. Recent research has discovered possibly connections with our frontal-brain cell structures and our ability to lie well, giving a whole new series of answers to the question, Why do we lie? and more importantly Why Do We Lie To Ourselves? An easy read, amusing look at the bedrock of civilization. Fully illustrated by the UK Based Freelance Illustrator, Cartoonist, Artist & Animator, Calvin Innes.
