One of an infinite number of monkeys with a typewriter.

I like books which are fast-paced, visual and have an array of fun characters, so that's what I strive to achieve in my own writing.

My favourite comic book artist is Mike Mignola. A little ambition of mine is to have him illustrate one of my characters. I may act out a variation of Stephen King's book Misery to achieve this goal.

Favourite writing tip:
When in doubt, have a man come through a door with a gun.

What I'm up to at the moment:
Finishing my second book, Elderland.

What's playing on my mixed tape:
Huey Lewis and the News, Greta Van Fleet, Bill Withers, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Stornoway, Greenleaf, Aretha Franklin.

If you have any questions about me or my writing, please share them on my message board as I much prefer that to PMs. Please also be aware I'm not taking reading requests right now.

Finally: Story is King, Structure is Queen and characters are their children. I'm just the guy writing what they get up to.
