More about Miles

Miles Hudson standing above a large lake on Tasmania's Overland Track.Despite being a physics teacher, my real vocation is travelling.

Sculpture of a group of everyday people outside the National Museum in San Jose, Costa Rica.In between travels, or often whilst I’m travelling, I love to play with words and ideas. Fiction is far more fun than textbook writing. My future-set series of novels, starting with 2089, is about a gently post-apocalyptic, Orwellian future England. Something like 1984 meets Station Eleven.

Based in Durham City CID, DS Milburn and his civilian foil, the kiwi surfer, Penfold.

Although it’s much more about back story, he’s very firmly set living in northeast England.Photo of sunset over the water in the surf town of Bocas del Toro in Panama.
