My name is Richard E. Rock and I am a writer.

I know that I am a writer because I once spent several weeks agonising over a comma. Only writers do that sort of thing.

Now I deliberately induce nightmares, and nothing makes me happier than waking up in the morning after a night of severely disturbed sleep.

I live with my girlfriend and our cat Zeb (black, of course). If you’re looking for me, you’ll probably find me wedged up against the barrier at a metal gig, for that is my natural habitat.
