Welcome to my website. I’m a British author, with three novels, numerous short stories and other items published to date. My most recent contributions were a story to the Philip K Dick Award-shortlisted Solaris Rising 2, and an interview on the DVD accompanying the reissue of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds’ album, Abattoir Blues/Lyre of Orpheus. See the bibliography for more.
I grew up in Tamworth, an average market town in the English county of Staffordshire – home to Sir Robert Peel, founder of the police force, and a castle that was once home to the King of Mercia. I’m a chocolate labrador walker. A chocolate consumer. A frustrated cyclist (it’s the hills, y’see). Former guitarist with Emma Gibbs Loves Badges, The Lip Servants and Pony Chair Black. Some say I can look a bit miserable, but that’s just my face; inside I am all butterflies and chirruping birdies.
