Welcome to the OFFICIAL 'About The Author' page of:
I am a dreamer.
I am a storyteller, a scribe of lies and fiction. A teller of tales so fantastic they could change how you see the world, and those who share it.
Let me take you into the lives, minds, and hearts of those whom I dream. Some you will love and some you may despise, but their memories will be with you forever.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
You might wonder who am I? Well, I’m still figuring that out for myself, but I can tell you how I’ve got to where I am now… it wasn’t plain sailing.
I began life in 1979 as the son of two entertainers from England. When I was about three months old they divorced, and I was raised by my Mother and Grandmother. My Father moved to the USA and lost contact with us. (I tracked him down when I was seventeen and have kept in contact to this day).
When I was five I made up my first story. Someone wrote it down as I dictated it, I don’t remember who though, it was a while ago!
At school I was a troublemaker. At seven I couldn’t read or even write my name, let alone read the stuff the other kids were flicking though in the class. My teacher would set us all our work, but then take me out of the classroom and lock me in the school library.
“All the answers are in the books on the shelves,” he’d tell me before leaving the room.

As the skies over the Earth darken, a powerful coalition of alien races descend upon our world. They come in force, to save it from the human race and our destructive civilisation.
Amid the chaos of the occupation, teenagers Michael and Alex become separated from their families. After days of living rough in the abandoned city, Alex is caught by an alien patrol and taken to a Detention Zone.
The future looks bleak, the war lost before it even began; and if they are to find each other again, they must survive their changing world... and the changes it brings within themselves.
