    About "John Brindley"

        When I left school, without any qualifications at all, it was to become a bricklayer This apprenticeship lasted for all of three cold and miserable days From there I drifted into forklift truck driving, labouring on building sites and in factories, shelf stacking in supermarkets and working on the cold meats counter Then I started an apprenticeship and qualified as an electrician I continued to study, gaining a Higher National Certificate in Electrical Engineering and became an electrical engineer with the Greater London Council, that retirement home for young drunks After doing about three days work in three years there, I got a job mis managing photocopier field technicians in Central London before becoming a technical specialist with a Japanese office equipment manufacturer During my time there I took A Levels in English Literature and in Economics and switched to the marketing department I spent about seven years travelling all over the UK and Ireland, with frequent trips to Hamburg and two very tiring trips to Tokyo From there I went to work in sales for a Xerox company, lunching with purchasing managers and flirting with receptionists.In all the jobs I had, there was one single common factor boredom For years I was sick and tired and frustrated with working in office environments or traveling with no opportunity to explore anywhere I d had the idea in my mid twenties that I could become a writer, which seemed to me to be the best way in the world of earning a living For years I was writing in the evening and at weekends while holding down a series of unfulfilling jobs I had a family to support I have two children so led a kind of double life, pretending to be in love with office equipment, to be interested in office politics and career moves, while really feeling desperately that I didn t belong there.Ironically, it wasn t until I went into sales and started to have a fairly good time at work while earning, for the first time in my life, a fairly decent salary, that I had my first book published This was THE TERRIBLE QUIN, published by Orion Children s Books in 1998 This was a story I had told my own children some years before while on a camping holiday in Cornwall.Since my first book, I have been published by Orion every year, with the exception of one book, a horror story in the Point Horror Unleashed series from Throughout my adult life I have kept myself very, very fit, with the gym, running, walking, swimming, cycling and playing squash although until I was twenty eight I did nothing physical, even at school.I am very, very interested in Science and Religion and have written about these two often opposing fields in Rule of Claw and City of Screams I plan to explore the science of genetics and of human anatomy much further in future books.
