Born in Shrewsbury, died who knows where and living in various places in between, I'm currently bathing in the beautiful, cultural, historical Shropshire air!
I'm on a quest to become a full-time writer, in order to fulfil a life-long dream. I can't remember a time when I didn't write and can't imagine a time when I won't. Having lived without electricity for a time, necessity sparked my love affair with writing, as it was easier to write than read in poor light. No one else had written the story I wanted to read and my characters yearned to live and breathe, so I had to bring them to life!
Now I write for the experience and the pleasure, for it is my passion, my religion, my parent, my councillor: my identity. I write because I don't know how not to! My head is full of stories all jostling for position and it's never a matter of which book to write next, for I work on concurrent projects.
My literary inspirations are an eclectic lot ranging from English and French classics, to graphic novels, historical biographies, Japanese manga and great fantasy, of course.
The Destiny of Dragons is a nine headed Hydra of a series, combining action, adventurous quests, distinct characters, environmental concerns, good vs evil, imagination, loss, magic, myriad detail, mythical beasts, romance, sharp imagery, triumphs and more. The fantasy only builds as the books progress. It has been crafted with much care and attention, penned with love, blood, sweat and tears, so all nine books are intricately linked. The series has been completed and book seven will follow in late 2017, fingers crossed!
