About the Author
I am a former professional self defense instructor with a number of bestselling non-fiction books under my belt. This website represents my move into writing fiction full-time.
Fiction writing is something I have always dreamed of doing, but like a lot of people I put it off for years, until recently. The success of my non-fiction books has allowed me to concentrate fully on writing fiction. I love the idea of self-publishing and I will talk a lot about it in my blog.
My favorite fiction genres are horror, thriller and urban fantasy. I watch a lot of urban fantasy shows on TV like Supernatural and Grimm, so when it came to writing fiction I found myself drawn to this particular genre. Writers like Tad Williams, Jim Butcher, Patricia Briggs, Kim Harrison and a host of others have also provided me with inspiration in the genre. Urban fantasy offers a lot of scope for a writer. I get to combine action and suspense with elements of horror and the supernatural. What more could you want from a book?
I live in N.Ireland with my wife and kids. I have two daughters and a beautiful grand-daughter who is the light of my life (and yes, I know I don’t look old enough to be a Granddad, but what do you do, eh?).
