I was born in Bishop Auckland. A village in the North East of England. In Country Durham to be more specific.
I grew up, as the outsider at school. I didn’t really get bullied, and wasn’t the bully either. I kept to myself mostly and was interested in IT and computers. I did play sports at school, from Golf to Cricket and football, but I wasn’t really sports orientated.
I attended College and studied Information Technology, which seemed fitting as I enjoyed building PC’s and taking them to pieces. I did quite well at college and having more smarts at words and writing rather than physical ability, decided that I wanted to go into writing.
I love the written word, the ability to draw someone in using only their imagination and your skill at writing. I love to write poetry, novels and for some ungodly reason NASCAR. I love Sir Ian McKellen and of all the people I would love to meet, he is my hero.
My writing hero was Arthur C Clarke and I would have given anything to be in his presence, he inspired me into writing and I used to watch his TV show.
Currently I work in Customer Service. I may one day not need to be under a corporate company and may become a serious writer and not need to work. As of now, I don’t consider myself to be a true writer. I would accept being called an amateur novelist or blogger.
I currently live in (another pit village), having moved back from London or more specifically Reading, Berkshire.
