Martin Victor Blake currently resides in Essex, soaking up the ambience of an outer London town with inner city problems. He is currently working as a teacher but suspects this is why he’s a misanthropic nerd. He holds a Bachelor of Science in Archaeology because digging holes in other peoples gardens appeals to his sense of humour. He is much more lazy than he appears to be. He loves writing short stories and is currently working on a fantasy novel, mainly so he can childishly relive an infantile desire to be like Conan. This is never going to happen.
