Darren R. Scothern


Darren R. Scothern is an independent author, poet and blogger. He was born in Sheffield in 1965, and had an average working class education before graduating from The Open University with a first-class honours degree in literature. He describes himself variously as an author, poet, atheist, rationalist, sceptic and armchair revolutionary. After finding some success in the small presses, Darren made a breakthrough into the American paperback market, when his award-winning science fiction story 'The Key to Heaven's Gate' was included in The Best Horror, Fantasy and Science Fiction of 2009, published by the Absent Willow Review. This might have been the start of a new chapter in his writing, but instead of taking the established path of finding an agent and writing more stories like Heaven's Gate, he decided to go down the route of self-publishing. 'I was becoming increasingly frustrated with submission guidelines syndrome,' Darren comments.
