DSC_0594-rt-SRGB-closer-crop_1000px_WEBI’m now 43 and stink in massive denial – thank heavens for my youthful looks and boyish (childish?) humour.

After graduating from the University of Kent with a degree in English and American Literature and Film Studies, I went to work for a movie stills archive called Kobal – great people! But I realised I needed more, so decided to join the Army and see the world.

After ten awesome years of military tourism in the Royal Engineers and ETS, I left in 2006, married the woman of my dreams and settled down in Saffron Walden. I also started work for Jagex – a phenomenally successful internet games company. Now – guess what? I’m back in uniform again. Never saw that one coming…

My first novel Redoubt, was published in 2008,  six years in the writing and conceived in a portacabin on Sennelager Training Area, I finished the first draft whilst in British Headquarters during Gulf War 2. I went freelance at the end of 2011 and have worked on a number of computer games including Merlin: The Game for Bossa Studios. I provide articles and reviews for Fantasybookreview.co.uk and SFcrowsnest.org as well as book and movie reviews for Soldier magazine.

 

My passions are Star Wars, Games Workshop, cricket and wildlife – all that grizzly bears really need is a good cuddle! Siobhan disagrees…
