I'm an award-winning fiction writer and creator of the non-profit online publisher, Philistine Press.
My fiction darts between the real and the surreal, the tragic and the joyful, with laughs along the way.
My characters tend to sit somewhere on margins of society. I'd like to think each piece of work is different, but a common theme running through my fiction is what it's like to be an outsider. The stories on this website will give you some idea of what my books are like.
My short story collection, A History of Sarcasm was published by Dog Horn in 2009. A story from the collection was broadcast on BBC Radio 4's Opening Lines.
You can buy it from Amazon. It's available as an ebook here.
Here's a sample story, Some Facts About Me.
Read a review of the book on The Short Review. There's an interview on there as well.
My novel, The Prodigals is available to read online for free at www.prodigalsnovel.com. You can download the PDF here.
The novel can be downloaded in various ebook formats from Smashwords, Barnes and Noble and the Sony Reader Store.
My novel Winter is Better Than Summer is forthcoming through Aqueous Books.
