I was born in England and spent most of my youth growing up in the Essex countryside. It’s a beautiful part of England, up near the Suffolk border, but I was born with a heavy dose of 'travel lust' so as soon as I could get a passport and adventure the world, I packed a rucksack and went exploring!
It was a bit of a risk and my parents weren’t too taken with the idea, but I’m still travelling and have been lucky enough to live and travel in loads of countries all over the world. In fact, I’ve now lived for more years outside of England than I ever spent living there – It is, after all, a great big exciting world!

I don't really get writers block, or haven't so far.
I get lots of ideas, start writing and some of them don't go past a page or two before I just don't 'feel' that it will work out, but I just move on to another idea.
The books I have written so far, fall into two series: a pure Fantasy with The Flight of the Griffin and Chaos Storm, and Historical Fantasy with Shadowland and now The Shadow of a King. Both series are for readers of about twelve years and up, but as I have many adult readers they arent just YA books. I can just let my imagination run wild!(less)

Five Star Amazon Review for The Flight of the Griffin!

Five young heroes, three crystal skulls, magic, demons and an ominous character called “The Hawk” are all that’s needed to ramp up a younger reader’s imagination as they leave thi Read more of this blog post »

“The world had turned to madness, and it was tainted red.”
C.M. Gray

“Growing old is inevitable, growing up is not.”
C.M. Gray, The Flight of the Griffin

“Of course I have fear, lad, but it's fear that makes me the most terrifying warrior on the battlefield. More importantly, it's fear that will keep me alive. My love of life is too great to die here today. The secret is not to deny your fear. Everyone on this hill holds fear in his belly. The mark of a warrior is how he deals with it.”
C.M. Gray, Shadowland

Veronica Dale Thanks for becoming a new friend. Especially one that is living such an interesting life! I write fantasy too, and have a weakness for reading Arthurian tales.
