I was born in Burnley some time ago. Educated in and around Lancashire, I then gained a degree in Arts and Media from Cheltenham University.
Unsure as to what I wanted to become, I took a temporary placement with a well known retailer in Manchester, as an adminstrator, in the trading department. Enjoying the work and wanting to progress I moved around the country gaining experience as a buyer.
Comfortable with my progress I left my job to travel round the world, working for a good while in a good few places. Now back in England I buy biscuits, a lot of biscuits, for an up and coming retailer in the East of England.
Soon after returning from our jaunt around the world, my partner gave birth to a daughter. Wanting to write my daughter a bedtime story, something from me that she could keep, I set about developing a tale about a wizard living in a crescent moon shaped mountain. My imagination got the better of me and soon the bedtime story became a novel, and so 'The Wizard of Crescent Moon Mountain' was born.
I'm now in the process of writing an offshoot to 'The Wizard...', but am concentrating also on marketing my debut novel.
