My first novel, Babylon Steel, came out in 2012, the sequel, Dangerous Gifts, came out this year, both from Solaris. I write short stories and occasional poetry, I'm embarking on a steampunk novel for Solaris and have at least 6 other projects lined up. They involve, variously, sex, steam, swords, dead people, orcs, and Dylan Thomas.
