I write fantasy and horror, with a little bit of sci-fi thrown in. Actually, my first book is sci-fi – you can check it out here.

I’m currently working on the first book in my new (first!) fantasy series. I’m super excited by this one – it’s the first time I’ve ever seriously attempted to write fantasy before, so I can’t wait to see how it turns out!

I’m also working on some short horror stories to submit to various writing competitions, as well as the sequel to Synthetica.

I was born and bred in Cumbria – my upbringing on a farm amongst the wild weather and Cumbrian fells probably explains a lot about why I write what I write…who wouldn’t look at all those lakes and fells and be inspired to make up new fantasy worlds, or imagine the horrors that lie beneath the beauty?

I did move away briefly (to Oxford! To Beijing! To Norfolk!) but the fells always called me home. Now I’m back in Cumbria, often knee-deep in rainwater and mud, but loving life.

Of course! I love talking to/meeting new people and sharing my love of writing/fantasy/cake! Perhaps you’d like me to deliver a writing workshop for your writing group, or speak to a group of students, be on a panel or attend a literary festival – whatever the cause, I’m happy to help!

Just email me and we’ll chat!
