He has appeared in markets as diverse as Year's Best Fantasy & Horror Volume20, Dr Who: Destination Prague, All-Star Zeppelin Adventure Stories, Tales of the Unanticipated, Aurealis, and Znak Sagite.

Just ask Peter Ball.
Recent projects involve participation in the Remix My Lit project and the AHWA mentoring scheme, as well as working with Azure Productions on a feature length film treatment of his wife Lyn's short story The Memory of Breathing. He is currently working on a number of novels. He is editor of issue 4 of Midnight Echo, so it might pay to start sucking up to him now.
He also maintains a blog at The Battersblog and wishes you'd all drop by and say hi.
