I'm a science fiction writer based in Wales. I'm the author of eleven novels and around fifty short stories. I've
been published since 1990, although I've been writing stories almost since I could hold a felt-tip. I have a background in
astronomy. I spent the twelve years leading up to 2004 as a scientist within the European Space Agency, of which about half
that time was spent working on S-Cam, the world's most advanced optical camera. After spending sixteen years in the Netherlands,
I returned to my native Wales in 2008.
My most recent novel, appearing in September 2013, is ON THE STEEL BREEZE, the sequel to BLUE REMEMBERED EARTH. In
June 2013 my Doctor Who tie-in novel HARVEST OF TIME also appeared from BBC books. I am currently working on the third volume
in the Poseidon's Children sequence.
I maintain this website on a sporadic basis, but for more regular updates I recommend subscribing to my twitter feed (@AquilaRift)

Most recent update: October 2013. General overhaul and update to Appearances.
