Status: Started posting my novelette, 'The Snot Wizard'. Hopefully not quite as yucky as the name suggest, but there's only one way to find out. (7 months ago)

I'm an author and publisher of science fiction and fantasy, and based in England.

I grew up on a diet of 2000AD, Tolkien, Star Wars, Doctor Who and Blake’s 7, and I love that fantasy and sci fi is so vibrant at the moment. 

I spent twenty years in the software industry, until 2011 when I became a writer, freelance book designer and set up two publishing imprints: Greyhart Press (adult fiction) and lately The Repository of Imagination (YA). I’m so busy with the business that I don’t get so much time to write. Wattpad is a great place to share what I do manage to write.

The Repository of Imagination is an alien story repository that I represent. The senior branch repositarian is called Crustias Scattermush and sometimes I write YA fantasy and science fiction using the Crustias penname. Crustias encourages me to do so since he’s so busy with legal matters and translations into human languages to have much time to write himself.

In the real world, I'm a husband, Dad, sometime-brewer, and oftentime-builder of Lego constructs with my son.  I hope to enjoy your stories on Wattpad and vice versa.

Thanks so much. Hope you enjoyed the rest :-)

Intriguing... Who are these characters who seem to have seen it all before? Guess I'll have to read on... :-)

A savage twist in the tail for this story! Well done.

Thanks so much for letting me know, @Grace3332. I hope all that digging makes sense in the end :-)

Classic Sci fi adventuring with rogues and dirtball planets. Made me feel I was playing Elite.
