About Me


Dear all, 

Thank you for taking a minute to learn more about me.

My name is Robert Rankine but I use my initials to go by the pen-name R.G Rankine. At the time of writing I am thirty-seven years old and live and work in London, England. I am a self-published indie author and although I consider myself very much a novice, I am excited to be at the start of my life long journey in writing. I am interested in contemporary fiction and write short stories that have a focus on modern life. I have also started the very first tentative steps towards my first novel and I am blogging about my progress here.

I formed Thinking Plainly Limited in January 2012 to self publish eBooks and paperbacks and I love being part of such an interesting community. I have learnt a huge amount from the wonderful 'indies' out there and I encourage anyone reading this to make as many contacts as you can (I have listed as many as I can here on my blog, just keep scrolling down) because everyone has something to offer and from minor technical suggestions to grand strategic advice you won't fail to improve in some way.

Since embarking on this journey I have been joined by two new writers and it has been a pleasure to work with them, bringing their stories to the world, developing our writing, our profiles and gaining fantastic experience in the process. Rufus Garlic and Alfred Duff have their own social media sites and you can find out more about them on the 'Thinking Plainly's Authors' tab on this blog.

I am on all major social media sites and would love to hear from you, please feel free to connect from any of the links on my website, www.rgrankine.com.

Thank you for your time.

R.G Rankine.
