About

Hello!


I’m so glad to see you here.

Who am I? 


I’m primarily a science fiction novelist. I write stories about ordinary people in extraordinary situations.

My latest series is the award-winning Embers of War trilogy, which the New York Journal of Books described as having: “Literary-style character exploration in thriller-style structure and pacing,” and Starburst Magazine said was: “Likely to delight fans of Peter F Hamilton and Iain M Banks.”

The trilogy starts with the BSFA Award-winning Embers of War and is followed by Fleet of Knives and Light of Impossible Stars.

In addition to writing, I spend a lot of time online, giving advice and encouragement to aspiring authors. I am also a solo parent to two teenagers and provide round-the-clock care and companionship for a loved one with additional needs.

Why am I here?


Writing is a financial rollercoaster, and sometimes the gaps between paychecks can be disasterously long. In addition, it's hard to get a full-time or part-time job when you are raising two kids alone and being a carer. Patreon gives me the breathing space to care for my family and write.


Why join me?


If you'd like to join me on my journey, as well as gain access to behind-the-scenes blog posts, unpublished stories and deleted material, as well as writing tips and all sorts of other exclusive content - including monthly video tutorials for aspiring authors - all you need to do is sign-up and choose your reward level. It's as straightforward as that.

I look forward to welcoming you aboard!
