For more than 30 years, I developed computer systems for major UK and international companies which involved writing long and complex technical documents. I hadn't attempted any creative writing.
After attending a local 'Intro to Creative Writing' course and completing 'Start Creative Writing' at the Open University, I gained the confidence to create my first novel "Homo intellectus" in 2011. I'm currently writing a sequel and a prequel as part of the trilogy.
I now write under the pseudonym of 'James Anthony' as I didn't think my birth name was very marketable.
