Agent: Harry Illingworth
Gareth has dreamt of being a professional writer ever since reading a Stephen King novel as a teenager. Sadly, writing derivative horror doesn't pay the bills so for the last twenty years, Gareth has worked in the Civil Service and the NHS, while training himself to write in other genres in his spare time.
Gareth is interested in exploring the sorts of What if...? questions found in the best science fiction novels, through stories grounded in recognisable reality. Unable to escape entirely from his horror-writing roots, he also likes to sneak in the odd terrifying moment for unsuspecting readers.
When not working or writing Gareth loves travelling with his wife, watching snooker, playing bass guitar, eating cakes and working as full-time hooman staff to his Skye terrier, Dougal. He lives near Edinburgh in Scotland.
