Tell us a bit about your family.
Mum, Dad and dog Winston live in Hereford, a small town near Wales. Brother James lives in London and I pop over to see him when I need a good roast dinner.
How do you work through self-doubts and fear?
It’s a torturous process and one I’ve not found a solution to, other than working on something else/crying.
What scares you the most?
I have recurring nightmares about ships and being back in an exam situation.
What makes you happiest?
Writing with my dog at my feet.
What’s your greatest character strength?
Work ethic.
What’s your weakest character trait?
Obsessive about planning.
Why do you write?
Sounds vomit inducing but it’s just become my main passion.
Have you always enjoyed writing?
Not really. At university I noticed I had a bit of a talent for piecing essays together. Then thought it’d be fun to do that but with my own creations and characters I love. 
What writing are you most proud of?
I guess publicly I have to say The Chronicles Of Hope series ( which I’m writing now. Secretly it’s probably a little known offensive book I’ve written that’s like an offensive critique on modern society. 
What book should everybody read at least once?
The Bible. It’s a great science fiction novel but the more we evolve as a species and the more it’s read, the more people will become conscious of the fact that it’s nonsense and that the main charac­ter is a jealous, vindictive, misogynistic, homophobic, racist, genocidal bully.
Is there any books you really don’t enjoy?
Erotic fiction.
Frank Noon divides opinion. Whilst some say he’s a philosophical genius, some say he’s a fanciful dreamer who deliberately courts controversy with his anti-establishment views about the failings of modern society.
Seemingly nearing the end of his life in politics, he reluctantly fronts an experimental inter-galactic government project late in the 21st century aimed at making life on an overpopulated Earth more sustainable. As he battles to gain control of a relative asylum, consisting of a cross section of the populous as much at odds with themselves as the situation, he unwittingly embarks on a life-changing journey of self discovery.
As they learn more about the project and its intentions how far-reaching might the consequences be for the future of humanity?
