Im well over 60, though I dont appear to be speeding. My career was in medicine and biological research. Now I live in the Peak District of Derbyshire, England, where I eke out a living by editing medical and scientific papers and occasional fiction manuscripts. In my copious free time I travel the Peak District countryside and collect local folktales.
About six years ago I decided to try my hand at fiction writing. So far, Ive had one collection of short stories (Rope Trick: Thirteen Strange Tales) published on a short print run by a small Canadian press; one story in that collection was based on a Peak District folktale. My first novel, Perilaus was published in the USA in 2009.
