William Stafford lives and writes in the Black Country. After working in libraries and teaching Drama in schools and colleges, he now devotes much of his time to his novels, which blend his irrepressible sense of humour with science fiction, historical fantasy, or whodunits.
He is also a freelance playwright, and works in collaboration with acclaimed theatre-in-education company Firehorse Productions on anti-bullying projects. By night, he is a theatre reviewer, casting his critical eye over a wide range of productions around the Midlands region.
Among his influences are Stephen King, PG Wodehouse, Terry Pratchett, Talbot Rothwell, and Edgar Rice Burroughs.
Keep your eye on this blog for news and updates about his books and also read some free short stories, most of which have a twist. (Lots of them involve violent murders, cannibalism and general nastiness – but don’t read anything into that)
