    Anything to do with the natural world and science, plus occasionally polluting it by riding a 1000cc motorbike...oops. Writing science-fiction novels. Watching rugby league and cricket. Last but by no means least is my daughter, who is a constant source of both joy and hassle!

About Me



I'm a single parent living in the North of England, with my daughter who is now at junior school. I'm a mechanical engineer by profession but lost my job a while ago. Now I'm hoping to get famous and earn a decent living wage through writing science fiction...so far this has not worked! Well, we live in hope. I've always had a fascination with the universe and astronomy is something I can do when I'm stuck at home, which is normally about 300 days per year. At least I can do it when the Cumbrian weather relents: I guess it wouldn't be the lake district without all the rain.


My motorbike is my other love and now that my daughter is big enough to ride we can share that enjoyment...it's a great way to travel but i can't quite see how to fit a 130 Newtonian onto the bike yet!


I guess that's enough for now.
