I'm a writer and general know-it-all, originally from the UK but now living in the frozen wastelands of Canada. I have been writing for years but only recently started publishing. My background is in astrophysics and finance but those were both pretty boring. Now I make things up and occasionally freelance to pay the bills.
I read and write pretty much anything; I have a soft spot for science fiction, especially the dystopian kind, as well as the classics, weird classification-defying stuff and anything else that is original and interesting or funny. Among my favourite writers are Ursula Le Guin, China Mieville, Iain Banks and Daphne Du Maurier.
