I qualified as a Chartered Civil Engineer and worked for several years on various projects in the UK, the Far East and Africa. During this period I won the Institution of Civil Engineers "Miller Prize" for a paper on tunnelling. Changing times resulted in a change in direction and after qualifying as an Associate Member of both the British Institute of Professional Photography and the Royal Photographic Society I started my own stock photograph library and wrote for the trade press.
An unexpected break in my Internet connection fortuitously presented the time to make a start on a long cherished project of short stories, and the first two of "The Red Grouse Tales" were drafted. Two more have followed and more recently I am now working on a second batch of tales and have just completed my first novel. As to what inspires me? The common thread is probably some form of morality - right and wrong, good and evil - and these inevitably drag philosophy and religion into the mix, which I think is no bad thing as it gives a reader something to think about. I also enjoy a dash of the supernatural and of course a bit of mystery. And there we have it! Those are the ingredients; the interesting part is mixing them I into a story. I hope you enjoy them.
