I'm an independent fiction writer born and raised in Derbyshire in the U.K. I still live there with my wife, son and gentle, yet simple minded, retired greyhound. My love for books came at a very early age and has never ceased. Writing was a later development, although not by much. My first memory of writing stories was on an old typewriter with half of the keys missing. Apart from writing and reading, I enjoy sports, particularly cricket. I've never given up on the hope that one day I'll get a call from the English chairman of selectors."Dave, we've got a problem. Can you get down to Lords and open the batting?""I'll just finish writing this chapter, then I'll be there."I'd love to hear from you about anything, so follow the link at the end of the book and send me a message.
