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 Scotland.

I’m the author of Closeburn Crossing and An Exiled Soul, the first two books in the Altinor trilogy, based in a world full of fantasy and science fiction. I’m writing Edge of the Wild, the third and final novel in the trilogy.

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 live in the Fife countryside with my lovely wife Arleta and Monty the cat.
