G D Townshende Bio

bio photoBorn and raised an Air Force brat, G D Townshende has lived in or visited 18 countries and U.S. territories on three continents, as well as to 39 of the 50 states. He has lived in places as diverse as Okinawa, Japan; Biloxi, Mississippi; Bangkok, Thailand; Athens, Greece; and Shenington, England (in Oxfordshire, near Stratford-upon-Avon).

He has been writing stories for as long as he can remember. The earliest story he ever recalls writing he wrote at the age of six- or seven-years-old and it was, in fact, a piece of speculative fiction. When he showed the story to his parents, it marked the first of many occasions that he was to hear the age-old question always put to writers: "Where do you get these crazy ideas?" (Idea Generator — barring that, a visit to any local post office will do.)

Long a fan of anything that is weird and strange, G D Townshende is an ardent reader and writer of fantasy, science fiction, and horror.

He currently resides in Maryland.
