I've been exploring sci-fi and fantasy worlds (and writing about them) since I was a kid raised on Indiana Jones, Tolkien and Back to the Future.

I've written 12 books so far - 8 in the Last Mayor post-apocalyptic series, 3 in the hard science fiction Ruin War trilogy, and 1 in the epic fantasy saga the Ignifer Cycle. I'm currently working on the 9th and final book in the Last Mayor series, due out in April 2018.
 
I'm very excited that you've found my Patreon page, and are interested in joining me on my fictional explorations. I'm looking for patrons to help me reach my dream of becoming a full-time writer. In exchange I'm offering exclusive access to advance chapters as I write them (like here and here), as well as the latest artworks, maps and book covers I commission from artists (like these).

You'll also see chapters that don't make the final cut, interviews, the design stories behind book covers (like this), insight into the writer's life, and any other cool stuff I come up with.

I look forward to plunging into the fictional wilderness with you at my side!

I start commissioning art - first up would be a map of The Saint's Rise world and character art, then key comic book panels from the Last Mayor series, then pivotal scenes from the Ruin War.
