Hi there, I'm Guy Thair, (aka WordPress blogger, dalecooper57) I have been making stuff up and writing it down for about five years now and I live in Devon with my American wife and our daughter.
I'm an obsessive music fan and now have four blogs which cover everything from writing and photography to video, animation, music and pretty much anything else that springs to mind.
I started writing fiction on a whim, when I became involved in writing prompts, set by a fellow blogger. I discovered a talent for storytelling and began writing short stories, usually based on a single word or a few letters.
Having had several of these stories published in anthologies, I began work on a new piece, based on the single word, "Stuff". Not finishing the story on the first attempt, I decided to continue it with the following week's prompt and it kind of snowballed from there; using each subsequent prompt until I'd written 35 chapters in the same way and realised I'd accidentally written a novel.
