Author's Biography

I am an engineer with a love of literature. For a long time I assumed that everybody could write flowing prose. Only when I realised that it was a minority ability did I make serious attempts to explore and refine my pastime. Many short stories later, I embarked upon Timescope, a full length novel for teenagers, chapter one of which was uploaded here about a year ago. Under the careful, patient tutelage of a close friend, I have learnt the hard way how to draw a storyline out, drop hints and leads to involve the reader and make the story flow.

Update: 2008. "Past; Tense," my first collection of short stories is approaching completion. I have had a lot of brilliant feedback from YWO and if you are amongst those who took the time to review any of the stories, thank you. It has really helped to weed out the bad bits!

Update Jan. 2009. 'Timescope' has emerged blinking into daylight. There, in all its glory with covers designed and produced by Esther, my daughter.

To find it type 'Timescope' into Amazon. If you buy it, I would really appreciate feedback.

2010 update. Past; Tense, my short story collection is flying off the shelves. At least two bought to date and my friend in the coffee shop has offered to buy another. Excellent front cover, the work of Esther. What will I do when she leaves home?

Update Jan 2010. Bloomsbury phone. "When can you sign a six book deal?" I agree just so long as they don't allow JK Rowling's books to overshadow my work. They promise exclusive marketing coverage.
Mmm, these tablets are nice, think I'll take another...

April 2010. My daughter's artistic ability has been given free rein with several commissions from YWO regulars. If you are interested in having a book cover done quickly and well, here is her website:
