Kneel was born in 1967 and raised in the middle of countryside and silence where he immersed himself in books and fantasy.
After trying several writing styles, Kneel began tweeting short fragments of fiction. A meeting with his idol, Jeff Noon, made Kneel realise that these short bursts could make up a whole universe of fiction and so the VirulentBlurb projects began.
First there was the website VirulentBlurb.com, introducing the world to the characters and technology of the VirulentBlurb, the Spillane-esque wolf-splice police detective, Kurt Lobo, the enigmatic Amelia and the superhero inmates of the Copper Cascades asylum.
Then the books came, with each new one being totally different in style from the last, from brutal noir detective stories to beautiful mythical tales and snippets from the birth of creation to the breaking of the skies.
Many, many more books and other media projects are planned as the strands of the universe overlap and come together in new and unexpected ways.
VirulentBlurb is an ongoing project with new strands of fiction evolving all the time on various Twitter feeds.
