DANIEL CULL has been writing since he was a teenager, inspired by classic sci-fi movies and television. He has mainly written scripts, having some success with BBC talent. His film script Antihappy was optioned by Harvest Films and he was an active member of Southwest Scriptwriters. In the past few years he has turned to prose, looking to inspire children using his science fiction series Tomorrows; short, stand-alone science fiction books for children: Goosebumps by the way of the Twilight Zone, pulp sci-fi and Doctor Who.

His short fiction has appeared in Interzone, Clarkesworld, and Gardner Dozois’s Year’s Best Science Fiction, and his story ‘Ride The Blue Horse’ was a finalist for the 2015 BSFA Award.

Gareth was born and raised in Bristol, UK, and was once fortunate enough to have Diana Wynne Jones critique one of his early short stories over coffee. Later, he went on to study creative writing under Helen Dunmore at the University of Glamorgan.

Gareth has run creative writing workshops and given guest lectures at UK universities, been a guest speaker at the Arvon Foundation in Shropshire, and given talks about creative writing at various literature festivals around the country.

His nonfiction book About Writing is an essential field guide for aspiring authors.
