J. Porteous lives in the South West of England. He was lucky enough to grow up surrounded by trees, fields, and greenery of all types, providing ample inspiration to feed his imagination. A love for Lord of the Rings meant that many a day were spent pretending to be Aragorn or Gandalf.
He grew up on a diet of Star Wars, Battlestar Galactica, and various other science fiction. When it comes to reading, he will happily devour anything science fiction or fantasy; good plot, great characters, and a dash of frenetic violence are his weaknesses.
Having spent years writing on and off, he finally sat down and actually finished something. He mostly writes science fiction, but has ideas in the works for dark fantasy, and is currently working on numerous horror tales for the tail end of 2017.
