Interview with me at SFF World

Following on from the review of Battlemage over at SFF World by Mark Chitty, he also did a long interview with me about my début novel, world building, my influences and all sorts of things.

My Experience at Nine Worlds 2015

Even so I think it is leaps and bounds ahead of others in terms of it being the most inclusive and open eventContinue reading “My Experience at Nine Worlds 2015”

Nine Worlds 2015

So, we’re still months away from the Nine Worlds Geekfest convention for 2015, which is taking place on 7-9th August in London but I’m writing about it on here for a couple of reasons. I attended the event last year, and it was a remarkable event which was eye-opening and the most inclusive event I’veContinue reading “Nine Worlds 2015”
