I'm a sock what's a bit of a git. I've got a degree in Archaeology and half a Masters in Theatre Design. I illustrate, cook, prevaricate about the bush and wander aimlessly in search of petty cash to sustain my writing habit.

My main works are my Absurd-Fantasy Series currently with the Revolting Rose and its prequel, Revolting Relations. The books are generally about to daft characters causing havoc in a world of live vegetables, mushrooms, overlords and woolly Nonsense.

Currently working on Masque; an Ottoman-inspired Masque of the Red Death retelling meets Abu Nuwas' queer poetry and with a bit of comedy mixed in because I can't help myself.

The Life and Times of Poodlepuff is a side thing that I'd like to eventually rewrite with some kind of illustrations about a tiny pastry chef named Poodlepuff and his accordion playing Yeti companion.

You can give some of my arty stuff an ogling, without so many of the words, over on my wordpress~
