Self-portraitI have lived in Wales for about 30 years. For the day job I tutor online, teaching people to write fiction. I also write SF and fantasy. I've sold a few short stories, but have yet to sell a novel.

In May 2007 I did the Open University course on digital photography (T189) which did two things: it revived my interest in photography and made me realise that I wasn't as good a photographer as I'd thought. Since then I've joined Flickr, which keeps me on my toes and encourages me to take more and better pictures.

Current goals: to finish another novel, lose the weight that's sneaked on over the last year and start exercising again.

A Legacy of War, the fantasy murder mystery that I almost sold can be found here.

My other blog in Welsh is here.
