Rik Roots

Rik was born in the small village of Dymchurch on the Romney Marshes in Kent, England. Dymchurch has three Martello Towers and a station on the Romney Hythe and Dymchurch Light Railway. This was Rik's world for the first 24 years of his life, except for six terms away at college - the North East Surrey College of Technology: Rik somehow managed to fail his final school exams and thus never made it to university.


When he is not daydreaming, Rik finds himself studying for that elusive degree with the Open University and writing the occasional screed of verse alongside working on his second novel. Rik used to work for Her Majesty's Civil Service which is, he says, a perfect training ground for people wanting to write novels based on alternate realities and fantasy.
