R.J. Furness has been passionate about great stories since he was able to read. At an early age, he would frequently create new characters, worlds and creatures, then write crazy tales all about them. However, until now, he has always kept those ideas completely secret. As well as his love for reading (and writing), R.J. also developed a huge passion for things like Star Wars, Transformers, and as a teenager, Jurassic Park. After having a lifelong interest in animals, music and anything spawned from pure imagination, R.J.'s first love is now his wife and children. Over time, he has also developed an overwhelming desire for mugs of tea, and good biscuits to dunk. He lives in Southport, England, with his family, a dog and lots of fish, chickens and quails.
