I was born in Belfast Northern Ireland, moved to Detroit, then New York, now I'm settled in Baltimore (yes, I have spent my life touring the top ten most likely locations to be shot).
At the ripe old age of 50 I found myself suddenly self-employed (or unemployed, but I prefer being optimistic) and I'm still trying to get the hang of it.
I only recently started writing fiction, but now that I have I'm hooked. This is probably a good thing as I have already broken most of the bones in my body at least once and the laptop is pretty safe....
I'm left-handed, white haired, speak enough Japanese to be a passable tourist although not as much as I'd like, and look pretty much like my avatar (if you add a cigarette that is).
I spend at least 3 hours a day with a blade in my hand, and I write at least 10 pages a day - every day!
I can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
*** I will be pulling my book at the end of March - if you have SHINOBI on your watchlist - last chance!! ***
