Author has written 5 stories for Fantasy, Young Adult, and Thriller.

Former student of Biomedical Science, part-time author and full-time daydreamer.

I am a great lover of almost all works of fiction. Anything with a good idea as the basis is always a pleasure to read and I am hoping to find many people who find my work to at least have a good idea.

An avid reader, I am more than happy to read and review anything that I come across, which takes my interest. I'm a firm believer in the philosophy that to be a great writer, you must also be a great reader, and as such set myself a target of reading at least two novels (or four stories from this site, depending on length) a month.

While my tastes tend to settle in the Crime/Thriller spectrum, both Horror and Fantasy are great love affairs of mine, so expect to see a sprinkling of all within my work.

I pride myself in responding to all reviews and messages, and am always up for a chat, so don't hesitate to PM me with any questions!

So, without further adue, please have a good time reading and reviewing my work and I shall do the same with yours.


Note: After careful consideration, I have decided to remove the story "Grinner" from my profile. While it is still a personal favourite of mine, the plot contains a number of spoilers for my current project "Emulsion", as well as my last project "The Lindum Vanishings", and I would hate for anyone to have their reading experience ruined simply by starting in the wrong place. I may re-upload the story in a few months, following the completion of "Emulsion", and include a note in the description addressing it's place in the series.
