New Youtube Channel

To all my readers - Once more I am going through a difficult time. At the end of March my dear mum passed away after losing the battle with Motor Neuron Disease, and then in September my beloved dad also passed away. He had been ill for nearly seven years, so in a way his passing was a relief.Please bear with me, I hope to be back on the wagon again soon, and thank you for your support again - Tristan.

I have reopened my Youtube channel with some audio versions of my poems and more. So check it out. It;s also under 'Mind-Set Productions'.

 


Profile Information

I was born in Zimbabwe (then Rhodesia). From a very young age, I was exposed to a multitude of books (To date, my father and step-mother own over 800 books between them). As soon as I was old enough, I began to read C.S. Lewis, and later Tolkien. At the age of 6, I wrote my first short story. Although I can't remember the details, I do recall that it won third prize in my age group. This was a surprise as I had been diagnosed with dislexia just before this. I have always had a soft-spot for fantasy, but unusual true stories also interest me. One in particular struck me when I was about 14 (I won't spoil it because this will probably be my first submission).

I have tried to publish on other sites, but - unless you are already an established writer - you have to stand in line, and on some of these sites, the line is LONG! In any case, that book took me 13 years to write! That's why I turned to writing short-stories. Publishing hard-copy nowadays is also a schlepp because of the costs involved, and with the digital media, paper seems a bit old fashioned.

As a warm-blooded male, and a Leo at that, I also like stories that are on the more steamy side. Hey - Variety is the spice of life, and the spicier the better I say.

I have also opened a new page on Subscribestar for my audio books. The link is: https://www.subscribestar.com/tristan-biggs.
