I’m a lefty British author who believes in equality. I write fiction without filler, because I have no interest in filler; life’s too short to write it, and I certainly wouldn’t want to waste anyone’s time expecting them to read it. My work is relatively short and to the point, with all of my books so far landing between 5,000 and 85,000 words. It’s my job to tell you the story I want to tell you without distractions, because you’re busy and I wouldn’t insult you with thousands of words of padding!
As well as being a fabulous writer, I am disabled and am undergoing treatment for gender reassignment. Neither of those things define me as a person, but they are parts of me that I have no reason to hide and every reason to be open about. Disability and gender/sexual issues are too often overlooked or used to pigeon-hole people, as if the individual spoken about was lost behind the glare of their label.
My first ten books were originally written under my previous name of Michael Pugh.
I have been married to Jenny since 2010 and we live together in Liverpool. As well as doing her quality wifing, Jenny also acts as editor and publicist for all of my works.
