About the Author

Firstly, yes, it is a pseudonym. That one is a given, I think! I have a very particular reason for it.

As an author, you are judged on your work. Nothing wrong with that. But you are judged on the genre(s) you write for as well, and you may find that one experimental piece of work you dared to do does not really meet the expectations of your following (if you are lucky enough to have one, of course!).

I have an interest in writing other types of work - contemporary fiction, speculative fiction, something with a mystical edge to it, and so on… for each of those things, I will likely have different names that I will write under, just so that there is a clear understanding that I undertake each thing with a completely different approach, and should hence be treated as a different writer. Sounds egomaniacal, I know, sorry.

Beyond that, I don’t really know what to say. I’m an academic at heart. I was at home with literature at school, and then - don’t ask me how, I really don’t know - I ended up in IT. Now, I’m increasingly keen to get back to where I am most comfortable, whilst using what I have learned to facilitate me where it is possible. One massive upside was being able to do all the eBook production work myself, and build the sites needed to make it all happen.
