I did a number of things before becoming a novelist – van driver, wine salesman, psychiatric orderly, Santa Claus at a major department store… I also spent many years working in the IT industry. After studying creative writing with the University of East Anglia in the UK, I wrote my first novel. Once bitten by the writing bug (for which there’s no cure), more novels followed.
When I’m not writing, I’m either reading, struggling to master the guitar, learning aikido (useful research), trying to find time to get out more, and looking for new and unusual experiences that might one day find their way into a book. My goal as a writer is to produce another 50 novels by the age of 100. My goal as a guitar player is to get beyond three chords. I’m pretty sure I can do it (the guitar bit, at least).
I spend far too much time hidden away at the top of this house, writing novels. I do emerge, occasionally.
