About the author:
I am inspired by Andy McDermott, Matthew Reilly, Clive Cussler and Duncan Falconer.
I have been telling stories for as long as I can remember. In early life they varied in content from humorous to factual or slightly scandalous. What I remember most is the joy of telling a story, entertaining someone or conveying new knowledge.I discovered this is the passion that drives me to write.
I grew up in Sherwood Forest playing Robin Hood with real bows and arrows, inspired by the legend. I think these stories or myths inspired me to write at an early age, but it took me quite some time to realize this.
I recall a happy childhood full of discovery and adventure, which I embrace now I am old enough to appreciate the great start in life I received. Before internet and online gaming, I lived outside come rain, snow or shine. I still love the outdoors and I am fortunate enough to live with a mountain range on one side, and the sea on the other. With the vitality to enjoy both.
Like many people I have had a variety of jobs, events and life experiences, which have enriched and sometimes entangled my life. I use this crucible of experience to enhance and inspire my stories.
I hope you enjoy my first novel. There are many more to follow. Let me know what you think.
As experienced by many writers, a level of rejection is to be expected in mainstream publishing. I consider this a learning experience, to adapt, overcome and carry on.
Since I began my writing journey I have grown as a person and writer. From the feedback and downloads of the Kindle book, I would say the public agree. Every aspect of the book from marketing, publicity, research, design and editing is my work. I have to do all these tasks, even taking the photos which are on the covers. I do all this because I just love it, the passion drives me, despite all the hurdles that life throws in the way.
