Simon Linter Short Biography

I have been writing stories as long as I can remember. When I was around 7 years old, I wrote a short story called Signs in the Jungle, and was on my way to writing my first book Monster from Mars by age 9.

I starting working for local newspapers in 1994 and have worked mostly within the media sector.

To date, I have written two full length novels, one nonfiction book, a book of short stories, and been featured in short story anthologies as well as having some poetry published.

I am currently working on my next novel and write poetry when my prose fails me.
