New Update (final)

To all my readers - I am sorry to announce that Youtube has removed the material I posted on their facility. As of next year, I will be producing new stuff, which will also hopefully be more professional. All going well, I will be able to post the material on Amazon. Thanks to Booksie and the sister site, Booksiesilk, all is not lost. To those who followed me on Youtube, I apologise for what had happened. I am currently uploading my work on Patreon and on Vimeo. My Patreon address is: https://www.patreon.com/tristan biggs, and my Vimeo account is: https://vimeo.com/tristanbiggs . Thank you for your support - Tristan.

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.
