I write short stories in the fantasy and science fiction genres. I tend to lean more towards fantasy but in practice my work strays all over the map: urban fantasy, dark fantasy, horror, secondary world adventure, steampunk, cyberpunk, superhero, space opera, magic realism, alternate history… The list goes on.
I am influenced by the quirky corners of history, the parts of science that don’t involve serious mathematics, and a lifetime’s voracious consumption of Doctor Who, superhero comics, tabletop role-playing games and many libraries’ worth of fiction. My public service career shows up from time to time and I’ve also been known to slip in the odd joke.
I have been a published author since 2013. (Upcoming publications).
