I live on the Wirral Peninsula with my wife, four children, two dogs and several evil chickens. My house overlooks the forbidding marshes of the Dee Estuary which is great for wildlife, spooky mists and wet feet.
I love writing but also enjoy running and playing the mandolin. Running is great because it keeps me fit and I can eat as many chips as I like without worrying about putting on weight... I think!
My Favourite food, apart from chips, is probably chicken korma, or maybe mussels or perhaps lasagna or maybe roast lamb...
Some more facts:
I never became a 'free reader' in primary school. Ask me why if I come to your school.
I used to love reading the Moomintroll books and, later the Conan series.
My favourite children's book is Holes by Louis Sachar.
