Book Description

In the year 2550 the world is run by robots while mankind basks in domed cities in decadent idleness, revelling in the freedom that robots bring.

More About the Author

Where do I begin? In the beginning was the word. So, lets begin with words.

Words have been my life and my lifeline, words have ruled me and saved me. I've always read, always been able to escape into someone else's life. You can be anyone you want when you read. Remember that.

My professional life too has been ruled by words, other people's words. It began as a compositor, assembling type and pages ready for printing. Printer's pie - you may have heard the expression - it's when type gets all messed up. Many times I've been called upon to un-mess it, to put it in order, to try and work out what the type might have said; which led me eventually to an almost masochistic enjoyment of crossword puzzles, Scrabble, and puns. (Not quite right, my friends will tell you that my puns are sadistic, not masochistic.)

Then came the computer (fanfare of trumpets) and life changed, shifted up a gear; but the words were still there, tripping from my fingers faster with the aid of a keyboard. But still they were someone else's words and not my own.

My first novel was truly awful, a classic howler. "It was a dark and stormy night..." doesn't come into it. I spent too long - years - on it. And it was part biographical too - a recipe for disaster. It died and is buried in a box in the attic, and if I have anything to do with it that is where it will stay. I keep it to remind me of how bad things can get if you are not careful.

My second novel, The WDPS, took a long time to write too, but at last it has been published. Now these are my own words. Likewise my second novel, The UDPS, a follow-on from the first, which is to be published next year. A third is under way. Oh how I love Science Fiction.

When I started this I said that when I was young I could be anyone I liked when I read a book; I'm older now, but I've found I can still be anyone I like when I write. It brings a little escapism into my life; and if it brings a little escapism into yours too, well, then I will feel doubly happy and I will have done what I set out to do.

I hope the reader gets as much enjoyment out of reading my words as I have had writing them.
