Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

I'm a senior lecturer at Coventry University, England.

I taught writing for eighteen years, specialising in scriptwriting, fantasy and science fiction. In that time I've taught some great aspiring young writers and learned as much from them as they have from me.

I completed my Ph. D. in Creative Writing at the University of Winchester in 2017. My specialism was in "writing techniques and world development structures in Science Fiction and Fantasy".

I help my sister edit my late father's short story collections about 'Ozzy the Pig', which you can also find on Amazon.

'A Bag of Bedtime Tales' is my first venture into e-book publishing. Since publishing this in 2011, I've added three fantasy novels, 'The Sword of Wisimir' and 'The Dragon of Wisimir' in 2012, 'Lord of Wisimir' in 2013. In 2014, I published 'Elite: Lave Revolution'. After a few months of this being withdrawn, the second edition arrived on Amazon in June 2015.

In 2016, I published Dreams of Chaos and The Loremaster's Guide. Both part of my work with Julian Gollop and Snapshot Games. I also had a story featured in Newcon Press' Crises and Conflicts, which is being republished by Baen Books in 2017.

My new novel in 2017 is 'The Forever Man'.

In 2017-2019 I worked on the computer game Phoenix Point, which was released in December 2019. I have a new novel - Fearless, published by Flame Tree Press. I also have short stories in the Forgotten Sidekicks and Lost Gods anthologies being published in 2020 and 2021 by Grimbold Books.

I regularly write about and review Science Fiction and Fantasy for SFBook.com, the British Fantasy Society and a selection of other websites.
