I was born in Leeds in the UK in the wonderful county of Yorkshire, and for many years have lived in East Yorkshire on the Humber estuary. I've lived in many English towns, mostly Brighton, and in Africa.
I've been a teacher, broadcaster, playwright, screenwriter, fiction writer, lecturer and computer programmer.
My writing for TV includes several Play for Todays, series such as Hazell, Shoestring, Maybury, Bergerac, Tucker's Luck and soaps EastEnders and Emmerdale. My screenplay "Thank You Comrades," starring Ben Kingsley and Connie Booth, was nominated for a BAFTA Best Play award in 1978.
Many of my science fiction stories have been published in UK SF magazine Interzone, and three have been re-published in Best of the Year anthologies. Before long I will be releasing a Kindle edition collection of many of them, including one never published before.
I usually begin stories sitting at a taverna on the beach in my favourite village on the beautiful Greek island Corfu, and that's the case with my new story "White Space." Kevin's frustration with his intransigent Compiler should strike a chord with most programmers!
