Ian works full time and owns his own internet based business. Having been writing short stories and poetry for many years his first published novel has just been released. The story of how it came to be makes for good reading... He was set a challenge by his younger sister Helen to write a zombie story for all ages, so he set to work using his mobile phone, originally tapping away between legal breaks or waiting to load/unload at his place of work, before posting directly to facebook for anyone who wanted to read. The first 40% of the novel "Salby Damned" was written that way, before it got to be too big. Then after much thought, he decided to turn it into a full blown published work, his first.

For my potential fans, I hope they will take something from my stories, that they take them to the same places they take me as I write each line. To be able to invoke a range of feelings and emotions through the power of words alone, in any writer, is a gift and one, as a species, we should encourage.(less)

The sequel to my first novel, Salby Damned is now under way. To be called Salby Evolution, it will be along similar lines with a few more intriguing plots and twists and some new characters thrown in. Nathan and Evie will fight again and may well do so through into the future, who knows? I'm also working on a somewhat more macabre novel called Being Within which has sort of taken the back burne...
