Okay, the About page. One of the many times in my life when I wish had a lot more to tell.
My name’s Dom, I live in Reading (a town in the South of England, small enough to walk everywhere but large enough for an Apple store). I have one partner, two cats and I enjoy copious amounts of exercise which is just as well because I also enjoy copious amounts of chips. I like to dabble in the martial arts, and for the past year I’ve been thinking about learning to speak Chinese and play the guitar (not at the same time). I’m a bit of a dreamer, a hell of a procrastinator and have the mutant ability to fix most plumbing problems with a spanner and a pair of nail clippers. I tried snowboarding once and decided I preferred paragliding, which I plan to do again the next time I’m more than eight thousand feet above sea-level.
And I like writing. A lot. No particular style or genre; I’ll have a stab at anything, and my best stabs are … well … pretty damn good. I like complex multi-threaded plots, heroes with serious character flaws and villains who can’t seem to smother that annoying streak of good. I don’t think a book can ever be too long, or too short. I think heroes are often found cleaning their wheelchairs, or working in Heaven’s administration department, or having sex in a goat-shed while Nazi soldiers are searching their village.
I think a writer can never go too far.
