I was born and raised in a small town in Northern BC, but now live in Vancouver. Writing isn't my day job; I work full-time as a web designer, but I like to draw comics and write novels in my spare time. I also like tea, prairie thunderstorms, and web development.
Telling stories is something I've enjoyed for my entire life, and-until recently-they mostly took form as comics or illustrations. Though I had dabbled in short fiction (and fanfiction), November 2009 was the first time I managed to write a complete novel. It was called At Death's Door, and you can find it right here on Wattpad.
Writing that first book seemed to spark something in me. Since then I've written several other novels, and I've also been working on a graphic novel.
COMMENTING & READING POLICY
Please don't ask me to read your stories. I'm a lurker by nature, but I try to check out everyone who comments on my stories. If I like it, I'll vote. If I have something to say, I'll leave a comment. It's a natural order.
Advertising, however, is just rude and also against guidelines. Don't.
Snark begets snark, so watch yo'self.
All illustration and design is my own. Unfortunately, I am too busy to make covers for others. Sorry!
Do you see a movement out of the corner of your eye? Do you turn and look over your shoulder to greet someone who isn't there? Have you ever reached out for the child shuffling up to the side of the bed at night to find your hands pass through air? Have you ever been afraid to glance at a mirror? Are we ever truly alone?
So it's no secret I've been gone a long time. A really long time. Like... Over a year. And that's why it comes as no surprise to me that many of you assumed I wouldn't be coming back, that I'd left you, my stories, and wattpad in the dust. Well it's clearly not true. And I am sorry that I kept you all in the dark for so long, but I'm here now to explain myself, in the sparknotes version of course.
First off, I'd like to say that I never intended to be gone so long. Like anyone in college knows, poor grades and the end of a semester looming ahead is a terrifying mix capable of making anyone want to curl up in some dark closet with a bottle of cheep wine and cry their eyes out. This is (unknown) reason one that I was away.
But the semester ended and I still didn't return. Why? I met someone. And we broke up relatively quickly. And then a couple weeks later... I met someone even better. His name is Josh Norris and, well, lets just saythat meeting him sparked an onslaught of reasons that kept me away. Beautiful and terrifying as they were. (Details are posted in my books temporarily.)
Anyways I Am back, I am ALIVE, and I am fully geared up to write again. Weekly updates will resume on Sweet Obsession as soon as Sunday and if anything happens to change that I'll be posting here.
My Merciless Mate needs a cover for me to start tossing anything out, and if you want to make me one and email it, my email is chuggs3y@Gmail.com and I love fan mail. Mate Chase's rewrite will also need a cover and of course if you wanted to make one for SO I am always looking for pictures to post in later chapters.
If you have any further questions please don't hesitate to PM me. I will answer as best as I can.

I was born in Bedford, England, and grew up in Ampthill (Anglo-Saxon for 'anthill').
After university, I lived for a couple of months in Glasgow and a couple of years in Prague - my favourite city. Then I came back to England and worked in Fielders Bookshop in Wimbledon.
By this point I'd written four and a half unpublished novels, so I decided to try something different: short stories and a creative writing course. Malcolm Bradbury, who ran the course, liked my work and put four short stories in an anthology. The girlfriend of Neil Taylor, an editor at Secker & Warburg, who read those four stories in proof, told him he should publish me.
He did, bless him.
My first book, Adventures in Capitalism, was published in 1996. Since then, I have published quite a few other books, and written quite a few more.
I now teach on the Creative Writing MA at Birkbeck.
I am writing a comic called Dead Boy Detectives for Vertigo - based on characters created by Neil Gaiman in Sandman (Season of Mists) and expanded upon in The Children's Crusade. A collection of the first five issues, plus another story, is out now. It's called Dead Boy Detectives: Schoolboy Terrors.
