Hmmm, what to tell you about myself? It's hard to know what people might be interested to know, so, please feel free to email me if you have any questions.
I had an interest in writing throughout my youth and have written a large number of short stories or flash fiction just for the enjoyment of it. It was not until I was 27 years of age that I decided to take my hobby of writing a little more seriously and have since completed a lengthy novel which is currently being split into a series of three. I have also commenced a second novel, or what could end up being my fouth novel, depending on how you look at it!
Originally from Canberra, ACT, and now living in Townville, Qld, I have been involved (and am still involved) in writers groups such as the Canberra Speculative Fiction Guild and the Writers in Townsville (WiTs) group.
As you've no doubt already established, from what has been posted, I write speculative fiction, but, can sometimes lean towards the horror / thriller genre. If my arms twisted enough (so that it's close to breaking!) I can write more general fiction too. Most of what I write is aimed at adult audiences and with an occasional required tweak it can also be suitable to young adult audience too.
I have long been fascinated with the histories of humanity at war, in particular World War Two, and the tactics involved in fighting. I also have an interest in weaponry and armour throughout the ages, from the simple sword to the most complex modern weapon systems. War tactics, campaigns and weaponry feature strongly throughout my work and I'm frequently studying the subject matter between my day job, home committments and writing.
That's my background with regard to writing.
