Meet the Author

The Author - Tony originally qualified as a professional Chartered Design Engineer, and built up a research and development company in Kent, England, specialising in such unusually varied projects as 30000C graphite furnaces, liquefied helium gas pipelines, nuclear protection equipment and low temperature surgery instrumentation. The latter and its worldwide commercial success led to him being awarded the MBE by the Queen. Later on, he accepted the position of Chief European Executive of an American Company specialising in microbiological analysis instrumentation and computer related products. Based first in Switzerland, and later in the Channel Island of Guernsey, he built up a group of related marketing and manufacturing companies and agencies, in and across Europe.

Now retired, he is writing mostly science and fantasy short fiction and has completed ten collections of short stories, and a first novel, including the award winning TENERIFE TALL TALES trilogy, ROBOTS INCLUDED, MACABRE TALES and FUTURE UNCERTAIN, all now available, as eBooks and paperbacks, via the Internet from AMAZON.
