Born in Sussex, UK a long time ago… He studied engineering at Bath and worked for British Aerospace and the MOD for 23 years making bits for planes and controlling WMDs. In the 90’s he left BAe and became the Development Manger for a company producing rotary aero engines and in 2000 became a self-employed engineer.
For the next 10 years, he designed and tried, with patchy success, to finance a ceramic rotary engine. The engine has yet to be made, but he’s currently consulting on a related project in the USA.
He now lives in the Forest of Dean in Gloucestershire, UK, and does as he pleases: working for pocket money as an electrician and, in the absence of a consenting partner, living his fantasies through his writing.
