About the Author

Neil Trigger was told at school that much of what came out of his mouth was unrealistic and random, so he found a career where these traits could be used as a positive. After leaving his secondary school to join an art college in the hope that he would one day become an animator, Neil was disappointed when the promises of doing animation proved to be totally false. Instead, he spent every spare moment in the library, avoiding moronic classmates and honing the part of his course he liked - creative writing. He also spent hours learning the art of website design - then an emerging technology that he had to teach himself because even the lecturers were just beginning to pick it up.

When Neil left in 1998, he started his own website design company and went to University the following year where he studied IT and English Literature.

"I was far too into beer and girls to concentrate on my University work, to be honest" Neil admits. "Reading and analysing a book a week was heavy going and though I liked it, I couldn't keep up, so - ironically -I failed on the English Literature side of things."

Unperturbed, Neil set about an eclectic mix of jobs from working in McDonalds, selling insurance and even becoming a professional magician! In 2004, after being laid off during paternity leave (which he still thinks is morally questionable), he took a decision that would change his life. He swung the car around (literally) and went back to University to apply for a different course. With extra years of life experience, he completed three years in IT and Media (which better suited his desire to write, but without such stringent reading timetable) and achieved a first class degree. He then went on to study for a PhD in psycho-linguistics (which is a bit like working out how people read and then establishing the best way to write, so that you can communicate with them more accurately).

Being the entrepreneur that Neil is, he formed Ghostly Publishing which handled the publication of what was to become his series of fantasy novels. After Ghostly Publishing closed in 2011, Neil went on to study Law before working in a Solicitors practice as a case handler, moving to Bristol and getting married to the love of his life.

Neil now lives in Bristol and enjoys writing, painting and technological stuff.
