John-Paul Cleary lives in a small town called Stonehaven in the North-East of Scotland with his girlfriend and their three-year-old daughter.
Interested in most fiction genres but specialising in science fiction, his biggest influence is the Culture series by fellow Scot Iain M Banks.
John-Paul published his first book Convergent Space, a dramatic galaxy-spanning space opera, in October 2011. Convergent Space is the first book in the series, with the second book due out in 2012.
