Welcome to my little blot on the webscape.

​After moving to London at eighteen and flitting about for far too long, I finally settled as blissy as can be, by the sea. It was here that my castaway dreams resurfaced and I began to write—a lot—when I realised that I was allowing my innermost self a voice. In truth, my books are better at being me than I’ve ever been. My only hope now is that someone, somewhere, will enjoy the misadventures of my miscreants as much as I adore writing them.

While I’ll be forever grateful to MLR press for publishing my stories, I also wanted to self-publish a few, so that I may make them as cheap as possible and free on occasion. Along the way, I’ve realised that my writing isn’t as ‘ordinary’ as I thought, although it seems that way to me. I write as I think, purely for the joy of it. My stories are my happy place to retreat to when the world feels grim ‘n’ grey…

For a while, I wondered whether I should stop publishing them. Or…just own the fact I have rainbows coming out of my ears and tell readers that my stories are set in…my world. Rather than the mainstream one. In p’raps a way similar to watching movies made by certain directors. Taika Waititi & Tim Burton are my heroes; both care not a jot about conforming. They simply remain true to themselves and breathe life into their dreamscapes…to which everyone is invited. Some folk will take one look and turn away in distaste. But some? Might just feel that they’ve found a home amongst kindred spirits…
