Bruce Macfarlane is the author of the humorous and sometimes romantic Time Travel Diaries of James Urquhart, a scientist, living in the 21st century and Elizabeth Bicester, a Victorian Cambridge graduate whom he accidently met at a cricket match in 1873.
Bruce spent most of his working life in radiation protection and emergency planing with the nuclear industry.
And is now enjoying retirement with his wife, Julia, and their cockapoo, Lulu, on the south coast of West Sussex, just a few minutes’ walk from the sea.
A life of writing scientific reports and reading early science fiction, especially the genre of time travel such as the works of Anderson, Simak, Moorcock and H. G. Wells encouraged him to start writing his own time travel adventures.
When he’s not writing he’s out walking on the South Downs trying to remember all the names of the flowers and mushrooms, Julia, has identified.
His stories have been described as “Tom Holt meets P.G. Wodehouse meets Philip K. Dick meets Fortean Times.”
An introduction to how he wrote and developed the stories can be found here.
