I am a self-confessed eco-geek, a passionate advocate for sustainable living and a lover of life, slow, science and fantasy fiction. I was born in Solihull in 1960 and have been hard wired to computers for most of my working life.

Having shouldered immense technical responsibility and coded some rather clever bits of software, I ditched the stress and now embrace a downshifted lifestyle in Lyme Regis with my wife, fellow author, Tracey West.
