I started making up stories for my twin daughters earlier this year and they seemed to connect with the main character. That's when I decided to write them down and create a whole series of short bedtime stories for them.
Shortly after completing the first story I was clearing out a cupboard and discovered two old manuscripts I had written 20 years ago. With my love of writing rekindled I updated one of them (a short story called Recidivist) and published it as an ebook.
I work full-time as a software developer specialising in data-driven websites, and when I am not doing that or writing short stories I am pampering my wife and kids.
