About Me

I write short stories, I write novels, I write short film, I've even written screenplays. I write. Without sounding too creepy, it turns me on...... Now that I've made everything a little awkward, I enjoy that feeling of being taken on a journey and not even knowing where I'm going...

I've written two collections of short stories, a couple of novels (one of which was really crap, but it proved to myself that I could do it) I don't have one particular genre, but I guess I do have a style. I tend to write about people who feel awkward in themselves, not rebels or heroes, just people.

I could tell you about the day jobs I've had, but they'd bore you, I'd feel awkward, then you'd feel...... you get the picture
