Hello. My name’s Gary, and I live just outside Glasgow with my wife, my daughter, my baby son and a black labrador. I’m a freelance journalist, columnist, author, copywriter, scriptwriter and radio talking head, and I write features, news stories and tutorials about technology, the Internet and pop culture for lots of magazines and websites as well as advertising copy for┬ásmall businesses and multinational corporations alike.

My debut novel Coffin Dodgers was published in June 2011, and I’ve written lots of non-fiction books too: several books for young musicians, one on working from home and one about laptops. I’ve also┬áco-authored lots of computing and music books, and when I’m not writing or arguing with people on the internet I make poppy rock music and rocky pop music.
