About

Hello, and thanks for dropping by!

My name is Magnus, and I make things up.

All the time.

It can be quite inconvenient. Ideas come flooding even when I should be focused on things like making money or not walking into stationary objects.

But all attempts at suppressing my creativity have been fruitless and painful, so I’ve decided to embrace it instead. For the past few years I’ve been pursuing my dream of becoming a writer.

Dreams can be a nice way to escape for a while and imagine something different. But dreaming of becoming a successful writer doesn’t make you one. Trust me; I tried for thirty years.

Here’s how I see the world: everything is a story — our dreams, our ideas, our lives; even reality itself. We humans relate to this peculiar existence by shaping our experiences into stories. Science helps us explain the world; stories help us understand it.

To realise my dream, I need to understand how to convey my ideas through storytelling. So I study the craft: I read, I learn, and I write, write, write — even when I have to force myself.

And it’s working.

My short story, Ryder on the Brink, placed third in the Aeon Awards. I have over 250,000 words of first drafts, world-building, and notes spanning multiple projects, from short stories to serial novels. And I have this Patreon page, where amazing people support my writing. The more support I can gather here, the more time I can spend building a career out of my love for storytelling.

I am deeply grateful for any contributions, regardless of size.

Everything is a story. And you can help me write mine.



For a look at some of my stories, check out the short fiction tag — The Final Insult is probably my favourite, so far.
