Bio

Raised in the rural outskirts of Leek, Anthony worked in the paper, tyre, and cement industries. He became involved in the development of digital control systems at one of Europe's premier cement manufacturing sites before moving onto the project team, but claims that considering the amount of work he has done around the home he ought to put 'jobbing builder' on his CV.              In 1985 Anthony complemented a technical education, with a Bachelor of Arts degree, admitting 'Qualifications only became important to me once I was adult.' When jobs around the home allow, Anthony's time is divided between writing, attempting to play 8-ball pool, and socializing. Like most authors, Anthony nurtured a desire for writing from an early age, and like most, he became a clandestine scribbler. In 1994, he went public when a string of magazine stories were accepted. He has been published regularly ever since. His stories have been recorded by 'Talking Newspapers' for distribution to the visually impaired, have featured in periodicals, anthologies, summer specials, international newspapers, been broadcast on prime-time radio, and published in several international writing competitions, at times fighting off entrants from 27 countries. An audio collection of short stories has been released, recorded by radio personality, Pauline McGough.
