My name is Matthew Haynes. I was born in North Wales to English parents with their roots in Cheshire and Lancashire. I studied at Loughborough University where I stayed for far too long. Then I worked in IT for far too long.
I am now a senior communications consultant for a global company – a job in which my interest and skills in writing come in very handy. I live with my partner (a.k.a. ‘Siggy’ for the purposes of this blog) in the East Midlands.
I’m passionate about films and science fiction, and have an eclectic music taste. I used to be a big gamer, but tend to ration myself these days. In my spare time I watch shed loads of films, read a lot of books and write all sorts of stuff.
I have written several books and there is a lot of information about them on this blog as well as my somewhat random musings on film, tv, music, games, books, writing, food, drink and life in general.
