Michael Brookes is an Executive Producer with a leading UK games developer. Working in games and writing are two of his life passions and he considers himself fortunate to be able to indulge them both. He lives in the east of England, enjoying starry skies in the flattest part of the country. When not working or writing he can sometimes be found sleeping. Which is good as that is where many good ideas come from.

Over £1700 Raised for Special Effect So Far!

I'm very pleased that so far my charity hair and beard shave on November 11th has raised £1742 for Special Effect - a wonderful charity who do excellent work with disabled people by improving their lives using technology.
