I'm an author, illustrator, painter and teacher living in Gloucestershire with my family and two enormous white wolves. I'm a freak for good writing, fantasy, science-fiction and basically any story that captivates me. My first novel, White Mountain - Book 1 of The Darkling Chronicles, an epic fantasy, was published last September to great reviews, buzz and high sales. It was also shortlisted as a quarterfinalist in the 2011 Amazon Breakthrough Novelist Award. I'm currently working on Book 2 'Race Of Shadows', Book 3 and a host of other projects, and truly believe that the only limits are your imagination!
My influences are wide and rather varied. My favourite novellas are Joseph Conrad's 'Heart of Darkness' & J.D. Salinger's 'Catcher in the Rye'. Favourite novels, Tolkien's 'Lord of the Rings', John Irving's 'Ciderhouse Rules', Aldous Huxley's 'Brave New World', Philip.K.Dick's 'Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep', and I have a deep love of H.P. Lovecraft and Maya Angelou! Gemmell, McCaffrey, George Martin and Carl Sagan are also writers I admire. Yes, I have eclectic tastes!
