About Smith Ellis
Born in 1973, I'm currently an old guy. I have a degree in English, but a professional background in IT. A father of three, I haven't slept properly in over ten years. I'm kept alive by coffee.
I have a problem; I'm a polymath. My interests are diverse and sometimes silly.
After about 25 years of procrastinating, I've started self-publishing books. Over the next two years I will release several sci-fi books, and maybe a handful of of regular fiction books. I love deep and meaningful, but I also like action and adventure - I hope I can provide you with a little of both.
I've enjoyed books by J. D. Salinger, Douglas Adams, Asimov and Kurt Vonnegut....among others.

Ripped from his normal body and hunted by the all seeing Grid AI, James discovers that his girlfriend Luna was more than she seemed.
