M R Mortimer is an Australian Science Fiction writer. Born in the town of Gosford in 1973, he moved north to Newcastle in his late teens. After being heavily involved in IT for many years he returned to study and graduated with Honours from Newcastle University as a Cultural Anthropologist. He also spent some years working as a high school teacher after completing a DipEd at the same university.
Reading SF and Fantasy at an early age, he established a lifelong love of these genres. The introduction his grandfather gave him to the worlds of the imagination was a precious gift, and he hopes that in time he can pass that gift on to many others through his books and stories.
M R Mortimer has spent a great portion of his life involved in creative exploits, including music, theatre, the visual arts and writing. He also extended that into video game design, and continues on his personal creative journey now.
While primarily writing SF, he has now launched a new Fantasy series titled "The Cinder Chronicles" under the name Martin R Mortimer.
