About me? hmm…
I’m a 34-year-old writer from Manchester, England. I’ve been writing in my spare time for the past 16 years with varying degrees of discipline. I’m hoping to take it further and I’m always looking for ways to improve myself and my writing. I’ve written three full stories and a few short stories and I’m half way through two others. All of these require editing though which I’m more than looking forward to. I enjoy every part of the writing process. Nothing annoys me about it. Well, I’ve not found anything anyway. Yet.
My interest in writing began when I took a Film Studies Course at College in 2001. One of the assignments was to create a character and give him or her a back story. I did this and got some good feedback from my tutor but I only fully remember the feeling I got from creating this character. I loved it and from then on I casually began to write but have only recently (2010 ish) started to take it further. I enjoy reading all kinds of stories but mostly fantasy and sci-fi orientated ones. These are my chosen genres as I love the idea of creating a whole world from scratch or tweaking with my the one I’m living in now. And, if I want something in there like a sleep walking dragon or an army of bugbears, I can add them in and not have to worry as long as I remember to explain how along the way.
I currently live in Manchester and work there as well. I’m a banker but it pays for my life so I can’t complain that much. I’m a member of various sites that allow me to gain feedback on my work. It also allows me to read some brilliant stories along the way, which is always good.
I like to listen to rock and metal music whenever I’m walking or running or not writing. I enjoy watching a wide range of films to give my ears a rest. I’d say my favourite author’s are Giles Kristian, J.R.R Tolkien, JK Rowling, Bret Easton Ellis and Robert Lewis Stevenson.
