Fyn Day

Portsmouth, United Kingdom


Home page:

Fyn Day was born in the fifties and started to write in the sixties Ė not very well at first, just his name and always with the last letter in backwards upper case. However, he improved, and throughout the seventies and eighties wrote mostly exam papers, well enough to attend Bristol University and hang out in the medical school for a couple of years.

Before the nineties were properly under way Fyn was editing monthlies for a London publishing house, then escaped the office and wrote for the trade press as a wandering correspondent Ė wandering, among other places, into advertising.

At about this time Fynís poems were being widely published and won several prizes. Dazzled by the promise of poverty posed by a future in poetry, he turned to technical authoring and made a reasonable living instead, much to the appreciation of his two teenage children. Nevertheless, normal order has been restored: following a Masterís Degree in creative writing, Fynís first novel, The Alice Factor, has been published by Blue Sky Press (check out His second, Lauren, is due to follow.

Other interests include making frequent and generous donations to maintain aging cars of no consequence, and writing for the screen. Two shorts (The Sister Ressurection and The Brother Killer) have been put into production (check out and further projects, including a feature length movie (Papa's Barn) are in progress.
