Hi, I’m Giles. I was born in The Hague, The Netherlands to a Scottish father and a mother of Dutch, Welsh and English ancestry. I went to school in Edinburgh, UK. After living in a number of countries, including Kuwait, Syria, New Zealand, Cuba, China and Cambodia, I returned to settle in Edinburgh.

Before publishing my first book, I wrote articles and short stories for various magazines, eBook distributors and travel websites including Smashwords and the ‘History of Britain Magazine’.

I’m the author of Closeburn Crossing, the first book in the Altinor trilogy, based in a world full of fantasy and science fiction. I live in Edinburgh with my wife and Monty the cat.
