I am a lifelong fan of fantasy and science fiction. It started with The Hobbit, The Belgariad, the Earthsea books, the Shannara series and then David Gemmell, who was a huge influence during my teenage years. For most of that time I have also been reading comics. It began with superhero comics from DC and Marvel but now I read across many genres from a wide variety of comic book publishers.
I’m a writer and podcaster. I’ve previously written a comic book column and comic book reviews for Tor.com, developed intellectual property into comic book pitches for a media company, and self published a superhero comic.
For five years from 2007 to 2012 I co-hosted a comics podcast, which focused on highlighting comics, movies and TV outside the spotlight. I have also spoken on panels at comic book conventions about comics and podcasting.
I’m currently working on my epic fantasy novel and I am represented by Juliet Mushens of The Agency Group.
I am also working on several comic book projects, including one with Adam Bolton (the artist of Where’s my Shoggoth? from Archaia) and Ryan Taylor, and Flux with Pete Rogers and Maysam Barza. I’m also the lead writer on a forthcoming game which has also not been announced, just yet.
