Gradually exposing years of dedicated writing, in an attempt at doing fab things to brains.
I write dark and serious, to light and funny, depending on the idea, try to do it well, and have been doing so for a long time, with a trilogy - twelve years in the making - called 'The Lord of Nonsense' due soon. I create all my covers and make videos/ readings many of which can be found on my site. I intend to unveil a lot of writing in the coming year! If you enjoy original ideas and not knowing where each story might take you, come and have a look.

The Lord of Nonsense has been a huge part of my life for a long time. A trilogy driven by the unknown fate of a young boy in 1945. He manages to visit the moment of his own death and vanishes soon after. The only person who knows anything of this incident Is a boy of a similar age, who we follow to 2006. Now a famous author of strange stories, a trauma pushes him into what the doctors believe to be a coma, but he thinks everything is fine - better than fine. Now, he writes and what he writes happens. He writes many things, but he doesn't write Davy, the boy who flies through the windscreen of his parent's car and ends up, not in front of the car, but in front of the old writer's window. They become great friends, until the old man writes much darker things, bringing to life the most horrific creations of his darkest stories.
I designed the covers and made illustrations for my own pleasure, of some of the characters that appear in the trilogy. You can see many of them in the presentation that precedes my reading of the first three chapters, now available on the site:
