Bio

After completing a psychology degree, the author realised that he was profoundly misanthropic and set about travelling the world looking for aliens to take him to another planet.

Unable to speak any foreign languages and almost incapable of holding a conversation in his own, he decided to teach English as a foreign language because this was the only job that would allow him to travel widely without any marketable skills or noticeable intelligence.

He has unsuccessfully searched for life from outer space in classrooms in the following countries: Spain, China, Russia, Thailand, Hong Kong, the UAE, Sri Lanka, Lebanon, Vietnam, Oman and France. He currently lives in Hong Kong with his patient and long-suffering wife.

He plans to continue his search for alien life forms and would be most obliged if any aliens reading this would spirit him off to an altogether more exotic planet in an altogether more harmonious dimension.

 

What has he written?

He has written two novels (‘The Screen’ and ‘Letters from the Ministry’), a novella (‘The Inaction Man’), a book of short stories (‘Boots’) and three books on travel writing on India, China and Vietnam, but they have proven impossible thus far to sell to publishers, and so Ministry Fox has been forced to place them in POD limboland.

 

How way we know his words?

Links to these books can be found on his website and purchased for a nominal sum. You will also find links to about 15 pieces of writing that have appeared online, mainly travel writing and short stories; and one of them, The Interactive Classroom, won a Bewildering Stories Mariner Award in 2010.

 

What does the future hold?

The author has just finished his latest novel, Kev the Vampire, and is attempting to sell it to publishers.
