Author has written 5 stories for Fantasy.

I’ve never cared for bios, and oddly enough, I still don’t. Many people write many things about themselves, ranging from long to short. No matter what you say, whether it’s nothing or everything, you still say something about yourself.

So how is this for ‘keywords’: British. Male. Mid-to-Late Twenties. English Accent.

Already, an image should be forming. Utilising word association is an art form. So, how about some personal information? What if I said ‘Single: looking’, or ‘Single: Not looking’, or ‘Married’? How much does that change things? What if I’m lying? What if I’m not? The only important thing here is building up a profile, a bio. That is, what this page is about, after all.

Am I being an arrogant jackass? Maybe, but this is to illustrate a point: we use words to craft and shape a picture, and from that picture, we tell a story. Or perhaps from a story, we tell pictures. In that, I hope my writing will speak, and I prefer it to do the talking – unless you would like a list of likes/dislikes and personality traits? What I look like isn’t that important… is it?

Am I teaching grandmothers to suck eggs? That old cliché? Perhaps. This will no doubt get changed as and when I throw stuff up, y’know, after that whole ‘two day restriction’. Still, it doesn’t stop me from writing…

PS: In case you were wondering, I’m not married. ;p.

Also, PMs are always welcome; please stop by and say hello. I'd love to hear from you.

“MetaLens” is a series that formed in the span of an evening. Feeling the need to write something and coming up empty, I just sat and wrote. Then I wrote some more, something completely unconnected. Then I decided I wasn’t done writing and I was going to connect them. I didn’t know how, but I was going to. This is the result.

I hope you enjoy reading this set of shorts as much as I’ve enjoyed writing it. Please note that I consider these to be stand alone pieces, as well as linked.

Look me up on – same username.

Also, I’m sure it needn’t be said, but all works posted by me on this site do actually belong to me. Here in the UK, we have an automatic copyright - not that I think anyone’d take my works, but y’know, disclaimers and all.

This is a story about taking pride in yourself.
