Born and raised in the north east of England. Thanks to a full student grant, I was lucky enough to go to university at a time when most teenagers didn't. Since then, I have moved around the UK following my career and have been settled in South East Kent for the last 20 years or so.
My career has been science based, covering molecular biology, biochemistry, biopreservation, freeze drying and pharmaceutical development. I have published articles in the scientific and popular presses, as well as co-authoring a text book. Intelligent rather than creative writing.
Now, I have tried my hand at creative writing which I hope people will find more entertaining than freeze drying. Though if freeze drying is your thing, I can recommend a good text book.
