I started writing stories at the age of around 10 and have doing it ever since.
I have a long term interest in sci-fi and read the books and watched movies over the years. I trained as a Technical Illustrator, which gave me an interest in engineering and art.
I worked for Hawker Siddely for six years and went Freelance for five years. During that time I worked for British Aerospace companies. Here I got background in aviation.
For nine years I worked for Foster Wheeler who built power stations. Here my engineering experience developed.
I had my first computer in the early 80s, so became (fairly) computer-literate. My first mobile phone (the brick) in 1988 helped me start my own graphic design business. That business sadly collapsed due to recession, when many of my clients went out of business.
