Born in the United Kingdom, Neil Cladingboel moved to Australia with his family in 1961, spending his early years in Woomera, the heart of the Australian Outback, before settling in Melbourne where he completed his schooling.
After an extensive background in Catering and Hospitality, which took him around the country, Neil embarked on a new career in Real Estate and Land Marketing. Having dabbled with creative writing and contemporary poetry for many years, publishing Reflections, book one of The Erebus Equilibrium series, in November 2000, was the realization of a life-long dream.
Neil has since published The Anvil Amulet and Wraith Tide, books two and three of the Erebus series, Tale Spin, a collection of short fiction, and the short stories, Death Mask, Weatherwood, Ghost of Elysium and Anomaly. The first three books of the Erebus series were recently reprinted in a new omnibus edition. In 2005, Neil published Bortag's Curse, a companion novel to the series.
Neil is a member of the Australian Horror Writers Association, founder of Equilibrium Books, and editor of FlashSpec Anthology. He has also contributed stories, articles and reviews to numerous web sites and e-zines, most notably at SFFWorld.com. He currently resides south of Perth, Western Australia, where he is working on a new Erebus novel, Beloved Sons, due for release in 2012.
