I was born in Burnley some time ago. Educated in and around Lancashire, I then gained a degree in Arts and Media from Cheltenham University.

Unsure as to what I wanted to become, I took a temporary placement with a well known retailer in Manchester, as an adminstrator, in the trading department. Enjoying the work and wanting to progress I moved around the country gaining experience as a buyer.

Comfortable with my progress I left my job to travel round the world, working for a good while in a good few places. Now back in England I buy biscuits, a lot of biscuits, for an up and coming retailer in the East of England.

Soon after returning from our jaunt around the world, my partner gave birth to a daughter. Wanting to write my daughter a bedti

Oldman Brook Hi Lucinda

Sorry for taking a while to respond. I've set myself a challenge for a competition (Times / Chicken House)to take the word count on the book down from 159K to 80K, so have been working on this non-stop. Deadline is next Friday. I don't expect to win, but it's been an interesting experience into editing. The book has a brand new beginning, shortened middle, but the final battles are pretty much untouched. Personally, I don't think I'll better the original version, though.

I really appreciate your comments, it's strange to have a fan - good strange, though! I'm just really pleased that people like the book - it's an amazing feeling.

After I've finished the competition edit, I'm going to start on the sequel. It will probably take a year / 18 months to perfect (unless the original is picked up by an agent, that is), but if you're OK with it, it would be great if I could send you an advance reader copy.

Regards

Oldman
