I like to think I write because I have beauty hidden in me, somewhere. But the truth of the matter is that I'm addicted to it, like nerdy cocaine. I study Mathematics and Computer Science, so thought I better write fantasy, just to complete that stereotype too.

They call it the Dawnlight because that's as far as it ever gets. The sun rises in the early morning, with its thin, tentative light, and for the rest of the day there is nothing more. Nothing. Nothing but rain and grey and dead dragon bones. Bare rock and bodies. It's dark and wet and empty. It's fog and sickness and death.

Lots of people have a 'my aims' section on their profile. My only aim was to get 'Promise the Sky' into the top ten of a genre so I'd be able to see it on the old homepage. It did (Adventure) but I was on holiday so I missed it. That's how my luck works. So now I just want to make it onto the Watty Awards Shortlist this year instead because the homepage has changed and I had to get a new aim. Maybe next year I'll go for Rowling-esque exposure, riches, and world domination.

When you kill a man, ensure you give him the respect of your gaze. Hold his eyes until he dies. And then, when the battle is done, remember only that every victory has its price.

They had caught a being of pure emotion, of loathing and lust, a deity of a drowning sea. And they had trapped it the body of another. They had awoken it, and taunted it, and sealed it in flesh.

"I am your guardian angel." I considered her words for a moment as she stared forlornly at my cooling corpse. It had stopped bleeding. Too little too late, I thought bitterly.
