Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I’ve written four books. The first was a collection of autobiographical funny stories, how I got arrested and imprisoned in Colonel Qaddafi’s Libya for instance. Not funny at the time. The book’s called ‘A Horse in the Morning.’ If you read it you’ll know more than enough about me so I won’t say any more about myself.
Next I wrote a time travel novel called ‘Chronoscape.’ In order to help advertise ‘Chronoscape’ I started writing flash fiction. This led to me publishing a collection of SF stories called ‘Dead People on Facebook.’
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
My latest book is a spin off from ‘Chronoscape’ called ‘The Muslim Prince.’ It’s a Techno Thriller and slightly futuristic. I wrote it because I’ve always wondered what would happen to the British Royal Family if Princess Diana hadn’t died.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
None that I wish to talk about!
What authors, or books have influenced you?
Stephen Baxter, David Brin, Arthur C Clarke, Isaac Asimov and many more
What are you working on now?
Marketing ‘The Muslim Prince.’ i find writing short stories relatively easy but selling books is hard.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
I wish I knew. I hope it’s this one.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Find something else to do? Something easy like brain surgery.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
Read, read, read, write, write, write.
What are you reading now?
Stephen Baxter’s ‘Manifold’ trilogy.
What’s next for you as a writer?
Fame, fortune, piles and piles of money?
If you were going to be stranded on a desert island and allowed to take 3 or 4 books with you what books would you bring?
The Lord of the Rings by JRRT, A Cure for Serpents by The Duke of Pirajno, His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman, Eon by Greg Bear.
