Olli started writing websites for fun and ended up creating a website about his Grandfather Frank Kingdon-Ward who wrote 25 books and innumerable articles in his lifetime.
That website led to a small paid writing commission a 1,200 word article for "The Great Explorers" Robin Hanbury-Tenison.
He began writing a story for his children which morphed into a completely different book from the original concept. Years later it is still unfinished but the "Time Tunnel" series, also written for one of his children has reached the marketplace. Short stories for children with an equal mix of fun and education, the first two books are set in contemporary London and Roman Londinium.
Olli lives in North Devon with his family, having moved there from London in 2011, where he presents a regular local radio show featuring unsigned bands, tries to write, gets involved in local politics, and sometimes does a proper day's work.
