Author's Web Site:

Birthdate? 5 March 1965

When did you start writing? Probably about twenty years ago.

When and what and where did you first get published? My first article “Villains & Antiheroes” was published by the Internet Review of Science Fiction in 2004. My first book Sword: Tales from the Green Sahara was published by Pen Press Publishers of London in 2002.

Why do you write? A creative itch that has to be constantly scratched.

Why do you write Science Fiction and/or Fantasy? Because literary fiction bores me and I’m afflicted with a vivid imagination.

Who is your favorite author? Your favorite story? I have many favourites. Ursula Le Guin for her imagination. J.K. Rowling for her achievements. Ken Follett for his breadth of research. Usually, my favourite author is the author of the book I’m currently reading.

What are you trying to say with your fiction? That the possibilities are endless.

Do you blog? No.

If you could write your own epitaph, what would it say? I’m a scaredy-cat, so I don’t like to think about my own death.
