JCH Rigby

JCH Rigby

Prior to his SF novel series set in the galaxy of The Deep Wide Black, JCH Rigby (Charlie) wrote short stories and plays, on subjects as diverse as a comedy about a mediaeval bishop who takes up piracy, and a satirical near-future in which motorbikes are forbidden. Later, he developed “Nano Futures”, mini short stories which distil SF tropes into one hundred words. He served with the RAF Regiment in Cold War West Germany, in Northern Ireland, in Cyprus and in the Falkland Islands. When his first military exercise was launched, he watched from underneath his steel helmet as a squadron of Vulcan bombers scrambled from a Cambridgeshire runway. There and then, he knew he’d made the right career choice. The “big boys’ toy box” thrills continued with armoured vehicles, cross-country motorbikes, helicopters and a huge range of things which went bang, generally when they were intended to. Much of the rest of his service seemed to involve carrying heavy things while running, generally in bad weather. Born in Newcastle, he lives in Lincolnshire with his extremely tolerant wife and the world’s fastest Labrador retriever. Father to three daughters, he is joyously surrounded by smart and wonderful women.
