I grew up in a small Scottish town, Bonnyrigg, to the South of Edinburgh. Having always been a fan of the sci-fi/fantasy/comedy genres (mix and match), my current writing is very much influenced by the work of authors such as Terry Pratchett, Kurt Vonnegut, Rob Grant/Doug Naylor, Alexei Sayle, Douglas Adams.
My short play ‘The Wooden Man’ was used by the SQA as an advanced higher English A level example for coursework, distributed to schools throughout Scotland.
Following my university degree in Music at Napier University in Edinburgh, I moved to London in 2007. There I began to write more in my spare time. The concept for ‘The Day Our Gravity Reversed’ was in its early stages and took three years of writing, rewriting, professional proof reading and artwork design to complete.
I attended writing courses with some of my greatest influencers, including Rob Grant and Alexei Sayle and won a first chapter competition for ‘The Day Our Gravity Reversed’.
I am currently nearing completion of the second novel in the ‘reversal series’, ‘The Life But Not The Times Of Barry Finkle’.
