Okay, I spent twenty years working as an engineer before making the leap into the world of writing. There have been ups and downs, but even now, fifteen years later, I LOVE IT. My passions are for fantasy and high adventure, mixing myths and legends into the real world. I've travelled a lot, so often try and bring my experiences into my work. I visited Russia when I wrote about Russian mythology, India when I did the Ash Mistry series, and so on. I live in London, so know my way around castles!
Yeah, they feature quite a bit.
Where to begin? If you're interested in me doing events, school visits or otherwise, do contact my publicist, Crystal McCoy. I love talking about writing, mythology and the wonderful worlds of fantasy! I've been at it for fifteen years so do have a few pieces of advice about the craft, the industry, and everything inbetween.
For rights for any of my work, the best person to contact is my agent, Chelsea Eberly, at Greenhouse Literary Agency.
Otherwise there's a Contact Me page, or give me a shout via Twitter or Instagram. I'm not the best at social media, but I do try!
Gaming. I'm old school table-top. I started with Advanced Dungeons and Dragons (1st Edition) and never looked back. I still run my group Weds evenings (hooray for online platforms!) and that got me through Lockdown. I'm usually the GM and, frankly, there's no better and fun way to learn about storytelling than running a rpg. That was how I did it. Other than that, what's there to say? I have two grown up kids, one's as keen on gaming as I am, the other's into model-making in a big way. We've got a cat that demands all our attention at all times and my wife's the sensible one. She tells me where I'm going wrong and whether that chapter REALLY needs rewriting...
