Ian was born in a small town outside of Melbourne, Australia in 1970. From the age of three he was raised and educated in England.
He has tried his hand at many a job, from filmmaking to working in a cinema, and has done a bit of labouring and football reporting, too. For nearly two decades he wrote about movies for the TV Times.
Soon after completing a Masters in Creative Writing, he was signed by a literary agent and has, to date, had three books published.
He now writes full-time (when he's not procrastinating, that is) and has recently completed his fourth novel at home in Somerset.
