I am a new science fiction author, and my first novel is Stowaway to the Stars. Previously I was a University physics teacher with an interest in computing and computer interfacing, until my retirement in 2012. I was born in Hertfordshire and grew up in Essex, but now live near Bolton in Lancashire (UK).
