I have been writing for a long time, mostly in the science-fiction and fantasy genres. After a career spent working in medical research and then in an NHS microbiology lab, I've now taken early retirement and have time to spare for writing and publishing my work.
I like poetry, particularly Yeats and Walter de la Mare, the art of Alphonse Mucha and the Pre-Raphaelites, and folk music. I dabble in many kinds of crafts, including cross stitch and beading, and collect press-moulded and British studio glass, especially Okra perfume bottles, and tarot cards. All of the above may flavour and influence my work.
I live in the UK with an avid collector of books and CDs.
