About the Author
Dennis M Lane was born in the monochrome days of the early sixties, deep in the industrial heartland of England. Coming of age during the Thatcher Years, the conflict that he experienced during the Steel Strike and the Teacher’s Strike played a great part in his political development.
In 1986 he travelled to Nigeria as a volunteer teacher and this lead to a long career working in international development, which continues to this day.
He has lived in 7 countries across Africa, the Caribbean and the Pacific, each country making its own impact upon him. He has finally settled in South Africa where he has now lived for 8 years.
His writing ranges from poetry, which covers a variety of themes from the personal to the political, and are written in a range of styles and forms; through short stories; to longer forms.
His first book "8 Million Stories" a collection of general poetry was published in 2010. His second book "The Poring Dark", a science fiction collection of short stories, poems and flash fiction, was published in September 2012.
He is currently completing his first novel “Talatu”, a Young Adult Science Fiction tale, which draws on elements of his experience in Nigeria.
