A Bit About Me

Shimbo.jpg

I was born in Manchester in 1967, So I'll never see England win the World Cup. According to my Mother, my first word was 'Satellite'. My Dad is from the Isle Of Man. I lived in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne for several years. Despite this, I still have a soft spot for Newcastle United. I worked Freelance for various rapacious financial institutions on a series of dysfunctional, disastrous and/or otherwise doomed projects until until 2003, when I decided to take time off to write my literary masterpiece, specifically a novel. The subsequent almost total reduction in income lead to me moving to Donegal, Ireland for three years to live in a cottage with half a roof. Eventually I came back to do an MA in Creative Writing. The weather is better in Manchester, so that's something. It seems my fiction will only truly be appreciated after I'm dead, but I have won a couple of prizes. None of the big ones. As I have a dog, my only remaining Ambition is to live forever, which I plan to do by uploading my outmoded physical brain to sparkling Virtual reality. Wikipedia is a start on this.
