Author has written 45 stories for Fantasy, Humor, Life, Humor, Fantasy, Friendship, and General.

I write whatever strange tales enter my head. Sometimes it's a drawn out story, other times it's a short tale. I must go where my muse takes me. One day it'll get a collar and a GPS tag.

Some of the less aimless of my stories can be found on FanFiction.net

For those interested, very bored or with too much time on their hands, here is a bit about me. Some of it may be true.

Age (see 'Big Hairy Lies')

806 give or take a few thingumy-doodads.

Interests:

Writing weird tales and peculiar poetry, listening to music, playing guitar and ukulele, painting, aaaaand singing.

Influences:

Just about anything I read or hear probably, but for listing's sake:

Rosie Jackson, Terry Pratchett, Lisa Swerling, Ralph Lazar, Grant Naylor (I know), Douglas Adams, Tom Holt, Tom Clancy, Spike Milligan, That M. Python crowd, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Mary Gauthier, Stephen Fry, Nanci Griffith, The late great Kirsty MacColl, Hayao Miyazaki, Rumiko Takahashi, The Bonzo dog doo dah band, Elmore Leonard , The DORC podcast, Bill 'The Saviour of the Owl' Bailey, Mike Batt, Ludwig Ledbury (Where ever he may be), the writers of Dangermouse and many others.

Big hairy Lies:

This has no purpose at all...

Jupiter is home to a race of nuclear shrews, Eating the right cereal at the right time will turn you into Abraham Lincoln, Birmingham is available in gingham and shades of pastel pink, Michael Stipe has spent the last three weeks sitting on an egg in the hopes it will hatch. It won't as it's a Kinder Egg, If you bite a radioactive duck you will turn into Mother Goose and thus you will appear in pantomime in Grimsby with Helen Lederer in 1876, David Cameron's best friend is a bit of plastic guttering he likes to call Phil.

Dennis Robinson reviews
Poetry for railway nerds. This came to me while ambling up and down Swanage railway station. This poem is supposed to be funny but probably isn't. Apologies to Mr. Simon and Mr. Garfunkel and all others involved in the pre-ruined song.

Exploding Cigars In Hampstead
This is a surrealist poem with little if any artistic merit. It's just daft.

Newspaper Letter
A strange little idea involving a letter published on a newspaper's website and some of the comments it attracted. It may get a re-write at some point to make the comments sillier. Apologies to Belgium and any TV companies anywhere.

Ode to a Tweeny Standard
This is dedicated to my brother, who said I should write an ode to a bit of kitchen equipment that got kicked out of the house. We loved the name of it. Is that silly?

A somewhat daft story in the form of a magazine article about the Gossip Station's Freda Fruitcake, delving into the history of this most...peculiar fashion giant.

Attack of the Mylar Narwhal
The not-awaited sequel to Playboy Chickens, this is again a surreal, senseless load of random gibbering. Features a cameo by an author and one of his creations. It's meant to be weird if anyone's wondering. Read this at your sanity's peril as it's 3 chapters of strangeness. You have been warned.

Python Prejudice reviews
Monty Python meets Pride and Prejudice. Sort of. Apologies due to Jane Austen, Monty Python, the BBC and French waiters everywhere. The two inverted commas that were missing now have been found. The 'rounding the bend' sentence that read somewhat badly is now a little better.

Playboy Chickens reviews
In 'The Second Book Review', mention is made of a book called 'Playboy Chickens'. It is described as a surreal read that makes no sense. This hopefully fulfills that description. This is supposed to be very weird, is utterly senseless gibberish and as will be obvious, I tried to avoid sanity while writing it. The Known Twitterer is real and knows who he is.

The Pearly King of the Theatre
The Phantom of the Opera meets Eastenders. It's based on the Joel Shumacher film version (Not his take on Eastenders ;)), so thats pretty much how the characters appear in my head. Mostly. It's a bit longer than my usual output, so who knows how this will go. It's now reached the Cemetery scene. Apologies to Andrew Lloyd Webber and anyone else involved in TPOTO and Eastenders.

The Book Review reviews
A fictional review of fictional books, which gave me an excuse to use the phrase 'Bombastic tones'. This is probably inspired/plagiarised or something similar by Monty Python's 'Rock Notes'. If anyone has been on the sauce and feels like having a crack at one of the fictional tales that are mentioned, then go for it.

The Strange Man Stories: Nurdle's Twist
A story in the Man's world, yet not about or involving him. This probably needs more work and some refinement, which it may get. As for the idea of the monument: It's the subject of several paintings I've done. I just thought it'd be nice to put it into a story somewhere.

Beguiling Spongaloo

The Strange Man Stories: One of the Chosen
The strange man chooses someone. This is a bit of her story. It's not complete and at the moment the ending is a bit of a cop-out. Suggestions on how to end it a bit better would be appreciated. Starting a story is simple, ending it does your brain in.
