I was born and bred in Scotland. As a schoolboy, I read Sci-Fi morning, noon, and night reveling in the genius of Asimov, Herbert, Niven, Moorcock, and Le Guin. These days, I love the fantasy novels of Robin Hobb, George Martin, and the modern SF writers, Vaughn Heppner and Alex Weir. My first book was the highly acclaimed coming-of-age novel, Small Fish Big Fish, now released as Caught in the Long Grass. Since then, I've returned to my first love and published mainly Sci-Fi/Fantasy books. The Alien Corps, Rise of the Erlachi, The Scarf and Fractured Prophecy are all part of the Prosperine Series. My home is Australia, where I live with my wife, two wonderful daughters and grandchildren, Mia, Ryder Patrick, and Ethan.
