I’ve worked in law and IT for both public and private sector organisations. When not pursuing these hobbies, I write speculative fiction and the occasional poem.
I’ve always had pathological desire to read: usually I read books and articles; but if I see anything with words on I will probably read it, including the back, front, and sides of the same cereal packet I read yesterday.
I’m happily married to Nicola. She reads less than I do, which is still a vast amount.
She has a myriad of admirable qualities; greatest among them that she uses the same style for the genitive of our surname. The lawyer in me requires me to point out that the previous clause is for comic effect and does not represent an objective analysis of her admirable qualities.
I also share my house with two cats, Jasper and Una, who we adopted from Bath Cats and Dogs Home.
They also display great intelligence and many admirable qualities, none of which are related to grammar or writing.
As with everyone who writes, I enjoy knowing that people are reading my words, so look forward to your comments; in exchange I will attempt to respond to them as quickly as possible.
Alternatively, if you want to contact me about something more general, or private, then you can use the Contact Form.
