I was born and raised in Mitchelstown in County Cork Ireland. I lived in Cork City for six years until coming to England in the early 1960's. I studied English Literature at an Oxford College and ran a series of successful businesses before taking part-time retirement. That's when I began my fiction-writing journey.
People often ask me, what is the fascination with writing, where does the inclination to write novels come from? I draw my influences from Science Fiction and when not writing I can be found in front of the TV watching Sci-Fiction and Drama. Those influences often lead me to sit at my PC and begin to write!
Fortunately my books have received much acclaim from fellow authors in the past few years. I often share thoughts with Ed Glasby a prolific writer, P Pulman, Bill Power a prolific Irish writer, the Rt. Hon. Boris Johnson, Desmond Morris and Baron Robert Pouget amongst others.
