His family relocated to Bedfordshire when he was 13, where he spent his teens writing short stories and fan-fiction. During this time he completed a fan-fiction novel-length work, along with a promptly abandoned techno-thriller novel.

After graduating from college Harry produced several science fiction works in the science fiction and fantasy genres, and embarked on the road to publication.

Harry had his first story accepted by Sirens Call Publications in July 2012, titled A Birthday To Remember. His first novel, Ruin, was published Autumn 2014, the first instlament in the epic Ruin Saga.  Since then, he has published several other works, including the cli-fi Our Fair Eden, the second instalment to the Ruin Saga, Brink, and collaborated with other indie authors in several short story collections.

His writing often revolves around the themes of isolation and the degeneracy of civilisation. He currently splits his time between writing and studying as a physics undergraduate, and lives in Bedfordshire with his family.

  1. I am intrigued by how young you are and how far along you are in your writing career. What I mean by that is, simply, you have a natural flow to your writing (at least in terms of blog posts) and are onto a third novel. I have started many but finishing them seems to be my downfall.

    1. Thank you ever so much for your kind words. To hear that means a great deal; to be honest I think that I still have a long way to go, and there’s always more for me to learn. But that kind of encouragement is invaluable.

      By starting many but not finishing, did you mean blog posts or novels, by the way?

  2. I must admit being slightly jealous at how young and talented you seem to be, haha! Stay on the path, and don’t let the words go to waste! I am looking forward to reading some of your work. Good luck!

    1. You’re too kind; I’m honoured that you would take the time to say such a thing. Incidentally, I’m currently looking for beta-readers for my latest novel, if you’re interested. I’d be happy to reciprocate, of course.

      Once again, thanks a bunch. Have a good one.
