In 1999 my first short story was published. The story itself was never going to set the world alight, but the achievement of being published instilled a degree of self-belief in my writing. Since then I have passionately dedicated myself to a craft, which, up until that first publication, had been a hobby, and now my work is regularly published both in print and online.
This website is a way to introduce my name and writing to a wider audience. I consider myself to be a storyteller at heart, and believe there's nothing on earth like a good, tall tale. My area of devotion is fantasy, though I have dipped my toe into horror, but I'm not sure I have ever written anything that could be called Sci-Fi. Occasionally, I'll write an article on Speculative Fiction, and if you look really hard, you might even find a poem or two. I am also a reviewer for Star*Line magazine, and for Sam's Dot Publishing, where I also work as a project editor.
Here at Storyteller you'll find links to where my work can be read and bought; regular news updates concerning my career; a selection of my stories, free to read; useful sites for readers and writers alike, and not forgetting the all important guestbook.
I am very happily married, and living in the Essex countryside in England, amidst fine greenery and men in bowler hats.
Welcome and enjoy!
