I am and always have been a voracious reader. I’ve gone through numerous phases – Sci Fi, Fantasy, Crime Novels, what is now known as YA, and commercial and literary fiction. I also enjoy biographies, history and philosophy, and writing about writing. My favourite poets are Ezra Pound and W.B. Yeats.
But although I’m a bookworm, I spend more time outside the house than in it. I’ve done blue ocean yachting, high-altitude trekking, and made some progress at aikido until I did my back in. I also torture my neighbours and the local feline population with my guitar talents.
All of this needs money and time, so instead of whoring myself out to a day job, I run my own computer consulting company in Hong Kong, where I’ve lived for my adult life. You can read about that here.
I started writing a long time ago, but have only taken it seriously in the past five years. I have three novels on the boil, and have published short stories and newspaper articles in the local press. They, as is my blog, are all on this site or a click away from it.
