Simon Haynes

Simon Haynes divides his time between writing fiction and writing computer software, with the occasional round of golf thrown in for a laugh. Born in the UK and raised in the south of Spain, Simon came to Australia with his family in 1983. He’s a founding member of the Andromeda Spaceways Inflight magazine, and lives in Perth with his wife and two children. Simon’s goal is to write fifteen Hal Spacejock books before someone takes his keyboard away, and you can track his progress on the official website.
