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 general expectation.

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

I’m an academic at heart. I enjoy writing and did start down a literature-related path but ultimately I studied for the IT field: it all works together, however, because the programming knowledge means that I am able to do all the eBook production work myself and build the sites needed to make it all happen.

Beyond that, I don’t really know what to say other than to say thanks.
