I started writing for satirical news website Newsbiscuit before going on to help edit the site. I also wrote some comedy sketches for BBC radio and ITV, then published my first two books - non-fiction works about sport.

My first fiction books were three humorous middle-grade novels, one of which won a Purple Dragonfly award, and I am now focusing on writing science-fiction.

Scroll down to see some of the sci-fi works that inspired me.

I live in Somerset in the UK with my wife, two children and two black cats.
