Retirement in 2000 gave me the first opportunity in decades to relax and write. My natural feeling is for humorous pieces, although interests in rural sociology and environmental matters feature highly. My first books, The Whitedown Chronicles, blend both, but subsequent works are the products of an over-imaginative mind, written for the sheer fun of it.

the door-to-door collector and even the door-to-door campaigner.
I have painted houses to shelter the homeless and have packed food parcels for the poor. I am, if you want, the sucker for a sob-story. Writer of mystery and espionage

I love a laugh; I find it very difficult to write ‘straight’. I am a classic English Literature geek, interested in challenging the barriers between literary and genre fiction. I still love working out and fondly remember martial arts my days. Have concerns about rampant capitalism, women’s position and the environment, so bring on the carrot juice.
British author and horse obsessed country girl. As a child I was never happy with "because I said so." My aim is to entertain but am fascinated with why people behave as they do and how they justify it to themselves. In my books I put ordinary people in extraordinary situations and then mix in secrets, lies and a host of quirky characters.

Words, words, words... We prattle so much and say so little. I do not aspire to such. My hope is that, after you have read my work, a collection of Psychological thrillers, you have found some reflection of your Self, some words which remind you of who you truly are and which provide for you an avenue of escape into the broader context in which you already exist.
Rob Gregson is a comedy writer who, in his youth, spent far too many years reading fantasy when he should have
been trying to get a girlfriend. Now married, he still maintains a healthy distrust of reality and his comic novels are clear evidence
of that. He is rewriting some, and has the interest of a mainstream publisher.

A day-dreamer as a child, I would escape from the boredom of learning into a world of my own imagination. From 5, I have written prose and poetry and have been published in a number of anthologies. My dream was to write a thriller and Third Time Lucky took 3 years translating the ideas from my head into a ‘real’ book. I have now started the sequel.
I specialise in well researched historical fiction with a flavour of the old gods. The Historical Novels Society describe my books as a historical fiction/fantasy 'genre mix'. I hope that my work illuminates the more dimly lit areas of the past, helping others to share my view that technology may change, but people remain essentially the same.
Never particularly interested in the outcome of novels, substance and style are everything to me;
to be taken to another world in the imagination seems more important.
Intricacies and the absurdities of everyday life hold much more sway, and ultimately tell us more about ourselves than any larger work of fiction ever could.
