    I was born after the steam age but before the internet was invented; in earth years and with a good mirror I could claim to be in my forties still (but that might just include a small vanity adjustment.)
    As a teenager I used to write stories which reflected an early literary diet of science fiction and fantasy. I did this on an actual typewriter (yes a real one and I even learned to touch-type) before some bright spark invented computers.
    Then life got in the way and I stopped my stories for a long, long time. I did carry on reading though and enjoyed many of the absolutely brilliant writers that there are out there. Hopefully I learned something from them all.
    Finally, along came digital publishing. As soon as I purchased my first kindle I realised that the future of books was completely changed. It meant that the new generation would grow up without knowing what a bookshop smells like. It also meant opportunity was put in front of me and not so very long later some internal brain-spirit whispered something into my dreams, "You could do that. You could write about me..."
    So I joined a local writing club and rather nervously and slowly started writing quaint little stories about demons, usually with soul-stealing character defects. One day, just for a change, I sat at my desk and started writing about an angel. Having crossed over to the 'other side' (sort of) I suddenly found I couldn't stop and now plan many new books.
    My partner and I have been together for more than half our lives. The result is an untidy house, two small dogs and no 'human' children. I am not planning to grow up.
