Shorter Bio

Holiday 2018

Trevor studied English and Creative Writing at Bath, England and wrote his MA dissertation on cyborgs. He’s managed big websites—W3C discussions level big—and headed up a mainstream tech magazine title, but he’s new writing novels.

His debut—Brobots—outperformed self-publishing averages reaching the top two percent in science fiction for LGBT on a leading web store—twice. The next two books in the trilogy—Red Gods Sing, Balance of Estubria— performed similarly and featured in Geek Syndicate and Gay Star News. A Netgalley professional gave five stars to the whole work. Brobots: The Complete Source Code, 2019—an omnibus edition of the series—is now published with Beaten Track. It’s a category best seller in science fiction for LGBT and has featured on and elsewhere.

A member of the SOA, he lives with his husband in Europe. An ISFDB entry exists. Read the full-length biography >

They’re easy to treat like trash.

But not so easy to ignore. Especially the ones experiencing the wake up:
The idea was that they could work hidden in society’s plain sight
allowing humanity time to get used to the fact
of sentient machines.
But it’s all too easy for others to take advantage
of those who live on the edge.
What they, and their allies, must do
is work out who, and why,
before it gets too late.
