Not a veteran Wattpadder just yet but hope I’ve won a few stripes since joining over a year ago.
Although not a prolific writer I do enjoy wrestling the many stories that skulk in dark recesses of my head, trying to make sense of them by letting the scratching, burrowing thoughts escape into the wild. It sometimes works, sometimes not, but it’s fun trying and at least it lets the little buggers out to scurry about.
Sci-fi is my favourite genre even though my largest effort is a 90k fantasy novel. Darkspur is classic fantasy and though rough around the edges and in need of some TLC, I’m still proud of it. A Little Known Fact About Ducks is my short story collection which I hope to add to from time to time. A mixture of sci-fi, humour and general fiction, I’d always recommend my shorts before Darkspur.
More recently I’ve been helping out fellow Wattpadders with covers and graphics. A self taught graphic designer to trade I enjoy helping others and in return it gives me badly needed practice. So, if you’re looking for help with a cover, PM me, but be warned, I have a life outside Wattpad and I’m not always fast. (Sorry, no requests at the moment, with work, college and family life, I have very little time at all.)
You’ll find some examples of my work here:
I do this for fun, nothing else, and have no aspirations of getting published. So like my stuff or not, I still thank you for reading.
