Born in Burnley, Lancashire in 1966, I studied at Lancaster and Newcastle upon Tyne Universities, taught for a year in Leicestershire, and then headed off to Portugal for a time before settling in Spain for the next eighteen years. There I taught English, as well as working in a hotel, in the country and – very briefly – on a building site. In my spare time I read, walked, ran, cycled and partied – not always in that order – and shortly after hitting forty I decided that it was time to get a proper job and so returned to Lancashire, started working in the charity sector, and finally found the time and inclination to begin to do some consistent writing.
