Born and bred in England, I worked as an automation engineer, married a Norwegian lass, and have lived in Norway's glorious Arctic regions for the past thirty years.

Being creative in the written form gives me vast pleasure. I hope, dear reader, you will take a break from your world and lose yourself in one of mine.

The first short story in the Cloud Brothers series, 'Outgrowth of the Brain', is FREE. You'll find it on:
Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Outgrowth-Brai....
Barnes & Noble:https://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/outg...

Jeffrey Eugenides
“She held herself very straight, like Audrey Hepburn, whom all women idolize and men never think about.”
Jeffrey Eugenides, The Virgin Suicides

Sean DeLauder
“For all their simplicity, humans could be remarkably perceptive, though they didn't know it most of the time, and their ability to thrust straight through deception and see to the heart of truth was often lost with childhood. By adulthood humans had trained themselves to be coy and manipulative in response to the coy and manipulative society in which they lived, which led them to believe that everyone was trying to be as coy and manipulative as themselves and were uncertain about what was true and what was not. Beyond their few flashes of clarity, everything became a muddle of colliding doubts.”
Sean DeLauder, The Speaker for the Trees

Roald Dahl
“So please, oh please, we beg, we pray, go throw your TV set away, and in its place you can install, a lovely bookshelf on the wall.”
Roald Dahl

Marguerite Yourcenar
“The story-tellers and spinners of erotic tales are hardly more than butchers who hang up meat attractive to flies.”
Marguerite Yourcenar, Memoirs of Hadrian

Michael  Gardner
“Traumatic events can be compared to facing a demon pitcher on the baseball diamond. Life tells us we have to take a swing at the ball, but engaging this demon comes with consequences. If you make first base, you’ll feel the need to sleep. Not so bad. Second, you’ll want to forget it all happened. Don’t we all? But third base brings the onset of madness and if you step off the plate there’s only death. In the great game of life, sometimes it’s better to strike out than hit a home run. After all, you can relax in the Dugout with friends until you’re ready to knock the demon out of the park.”

Alexander Rollins, Keystrokes
Michael Gardner
