What is there to say about me? Well, I’m basically a massive geek with a love for science fiction, video games, and especially science fiction video games. My favourite films include Back to the Future, Blade Runner, The Empire Strikes Back, and all the even-numbered Star Trek films (and some parts of Star Trek III). I’m also a massive fan of Douglas Adams’ Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy series.
I started writing my first book Time Rep back in 2002, just as I was finishing university (where I studied English Literature). Little did I know how bloody hard writing a book was, and it took me six years to finish the bloody thing! Since then I’ve written four more books – two more Time Rep books, Note to Self, and an as-yet unpublished book called The Electric Detective. Unless of course it is now published and I’ve just forgotten to update my bio – let me know!
As much as I would love to dedicate all my time to writing (outside of eating, sleeping, maintaining a basic standard or personal hygiene, playing video games, spending time with my beautiful wife, and going on the odd walk), the reality is that I do not earn enough from my books for it to be my full time job, so I also work at the Natural History Museum in London, which I enjoy tremendously. Seriously – how many people get to walk past a Stegosaurus every morning?
