More about me


My mother’s family were Estonian farmers and my father was a cobbler. As a young adult (ex-Burnley Grammar School) I read enough SF / Fantasy to sink a comic book shop. I read comic books too .

In a parallel life I live in and around Burnley, Lancashire, and have four children, three dogs and two cats. I am CIMA qualified, have been involved in privatisations (the Property Services Agency), PFI (Wythenshawe and Hereford), and have worked in the Textiles, Utilities, Construction and Aerospace sectors. My strengths are process mapping, spreadsheet modelling and costing systems.

Writing aside, hobbies include current affairs, Photoshop, retro PC games, football, walking, philosophy, ancient history, dabbling with digital audio, and stuff to do with space.
