about me

I began writing fantasy fiction at the age of fourteen and have been mildly obsessed with it ever since.

I completed my MA in Creative Writing, at Liverpool John Moores University. In the summer of 2009 one of my novels, HORIZON, was shortlisted at the annual novel writing competition Pulp Idol, part of Liverpool’s Writing On The Wall Festival. I also attended a weekend writing course at Ty Neywdd Centre for Writing in South Wales, where all the finalists had one to one sessions with published author Jenny Newman.

My main influences in the fantasy genre are: Robin Hobb (aka Megan Lindholme), Jim Butcher and David Gemmell. Hobb’s work is more indicative of classic fantasy, as is Gemmell’s, and Butcher’s is a mixture of both classic and contemporary urban settings. These authors’ skills at world building and characterisation are, in my opinion, supreme.

I don't currently have any books up, as the 1st two books in The Silver Flute Trilogy have now been published. Should anyone be interested, Land of Midnight Days and Through the Gloaming are available from amazon UK and amazon.com on the following links:

Okay. Prologues are not that popular these days and I found this one, although in the main well written, frustrating in that I felt it stopped me getting to the meat of the story. Some of the grammar is a little off as well. I carried on through chapter one and found the same problems with syntax an... view book

Hi Matti, just read the first chapter of your book and have some feedback to offer. Hope it proves useful. I never imagined how it would feel to kill somebody. Great opening line, draws the reader in straight away. "I’ve never heard of the school before," Dr. Foster had said [very] enthusi... view book

Hi Nate, just read the prologue of The Smoke that Thunders. I’m not usually a fan of prologues, but this works. It does its job of setting up the scene and the descriptive passages are really well done. There are some minor nitpicks, which I’ve outlined below, but nothing major. If I get the chance,... view book

CHAPTER TWENTY-ONE So I’ve reached the end (sigh). Just one thing, when they return to the foyer, Adam doesn’t appear to notice the change in Eliza’s eyes. Is this deliberate, or an oversight? I‘d also add something about the perils of the journey ahead, just to make it clear this is the final cha... view book
