Librarian Note: There is more than one author in the Goodreads database with this name.

Steve Harrison was born in Yorkshire, England, grew up in Lancashire, migrated to New Zealand and eventually settled in Sydney, Australia, where he lives with his wife.

As he juggled careers in shipping, insurance, online gardening and the postal service, Steve wrote short stories, sports articles and a long running newspaper humour column called HARRISCOPE: a mix of ancient wisdom and modern nonsense.

His script, Sox, was nominated for an Australian Writers’ Guild ‘Awgie’ Award

Thanks for asking and there is certainly no need to apologise. I very much appreciate your interest in TimeStorm and I hope your dad enjoys the novel!(less)

A Guide to Internet Writing Boards & Groups & Associated Nonsense

I belong to a bunch of writing boards both on specialist writing web sites and social media platforms and delight in expressing my contrarian opinions. Many writers don’t like conventional ‘wisdom’ being challenged, so I am constantly getting into arguments. I haven’t been banned yet, alas, but I’m working on it.
