Hello. My name’s Gary, and I live just outside Glasgow with my wife, my daughter, my toddler 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 small 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 co-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.
