Tony Talbot started writing short stories in 2008, after a dream he had and couldn't shake; Finally his wife told him to write it down or stop talking about it.

He wrote his first Young Adult novel, Over the Mountain, in 2008, and has completed several others and a growing raft of short stories since.

He lives in a village in Leicestershire UK, with an American wife he met online and a cat called Boo. As well as writing, he enjoys reading, playing on the Wii-U and not getting enough exercise.

Over the Mountain - 2008
Taken - 2009
American Girl - 2011

My favourite has to be EIGHT MILE ISLAND - that was a lot of fun...making Dylan so superior and arrogant and then breaking him. :-)(less)
Tony Talbot The only way I've found to deal with it is to walk away from writing entirely and go and do something else. Takes time, but it does work.
