Cutting a jagged knife in magical realism, fantasy and sci-fi.

I love exploring on Wattpad. It feels like an adventure. Finding a passage in text that makes you pause, take a deep breath and wait till the shivers subside. I love writing that gives you goosebumps. I know there are many tales here I will love.

Some of my fave authors are Neil Gaiman, China Miéville, Douglas Coupland, Stephen King's The Dark Tower series, Cormac McCarthy... I enjoy YA fiction as well.

I'm an Aussie, so you may notice my British English spelling throughout my works. I am sure you will enjoy the colours and flavours! ;-)

looking forward to finding and enjoying more amazing stories here on Wattpad. If you like my works, visit my website ( You can see more of my published short fiction there.

say hi!

*******My works********

I've completed one novella - The Aliveagainers - now a featured Wattpad story. A post-apocolyptic horror tale with a dash of paranormal and a dollop of tragedy. An unlikely hero leads a child on a quest for safety in a world that's quickly falling apart.

Several other short stories in various states. Please check out Midnight Dreams & Visions for short, weird, fantastical stories.
