I was born in Lincoln, an ancient city in (just about) the north of England. I lived for many years among the numerous historic buildings and Roman remains of Lindum Colonia, as it was once known. I've also lived out in the East Anglian countryside in farmhouses that crumbled a little more by the hour, and gave off the impression of being soundly haunted.

I've loved reading since I was a young child. In fact, it's fair to say that I spent most of my teenage years living in books. When a person spends that much time dreaming in text, taking up writing is the only logical onward step. I like to write fantasy fiction the most, because it gives me all the scope I could want to exercise my powerful (and overindulged) imagination. I also love historical fiction - I can probably thank those years in Lincoln for that.

I live in North Holland these days, among the windmills and the cheese farms and the clear waterways. For the past year I've dedicated most of my time to writing professionally. My first novel, Draykon, is a work of fantasy mixed with mystery/suspense. It's the first in a trilogy; the second and third books (Lokant and Orlind) are available from most major ebook stores (as is Draykon). I also write a series of supernatural mystery novellas, The Malykant Mysteries.

As of April 2013 I'm serialising my new book, Black Mercury, on Wattpad. This is a steampunk fantasy adventure story that's part of another series I write with a few other authors.
