Welcome to my website!

I’m a fantasy/horror author, who dreams wildly and writes chaotically. If my life had to be summed up in one word, that would be it: chaos.

Please take a look at my work, my random thoughts, and my latest news – often posted late, but hey, better late than never right?”

Synthetica is a great read, it has all my favourite book components, dystopia/utopia setting, crazy tech, hint of romance, scary villain and a great female lead.

Amazon US review

This is such a fun and exciting read. As soon as I read the plot I was hooked. Straight away it sounded like a Young Adult/Science Fiction/1984/ technology taking over mash up of entertainment, and it completely is. Synthetica will have you caught up straight away, and leave you eagerly anticipating the sequel.

Amazon UK review

This book reads easy, fast and is filled with plenty of action. I was hooked from the first sentence and found myself accompanying Anais on her journey.
