I live in Ashby de la Zouch, land of Jaffa Cakes, Ivanhoe, the National Forest and Adrian Mole’s Cappuccino Years. I’m a physicist and, after years of being a research scientist for the Government, now work for the Institute of Physics. My wife eventually got fed up with me talking about all the books I was going to write and told me to get on with it or shut up.
Writing science fiction in a universe I have been perfecting for decades, my stories are devoted to plot and characters. Influences range from Asimov, Niven-Pournelle and childhood science fiction through to the new style Battle Star Galactica. Having learned my trade with Writing East Midlands, I am now a member of the established Leicester Writers Club.
I fill my time outside of writing and a full time job with raising two children, being a visiting fellow at Nottingham Trent University, governating a local school, playing tuba in the Ashby Concert Band and walking two tiny dogs.
