I started creating stories not long after I mastered joined-up writing, somewhat to the bemusement of my parents and my English teachers. But I received plenty of encouragement. Dad gave me an already old Everest typewriter when I was about ten, and it was probably the best gift I've ever received – until the inventions of the home-computer and the worldwide web.
My reading and writing interests range from historical, mystery, and paranormal, to science-fiction and fantasy, mostly in the male/male genre. I also write male/female novels in the name of Chris Power.
I refuse to be pigeon-holed and intend to uphold the long and honourable tradition of the Eccentric Brit to the best of my ability.
I currently live in a small and ancient city in the south-west of the United Kingdom, sharing my usually chaotic home with an extended family, two large dogs, fancy mice, and sundry goldfish.
