Welcome! Firstly, thank you for taking the time to check this page out. I'm T Q Chant and I'm just getting started as an author.

Well, I've been writing for years but have recently taken the leap into self-publishing. I'm very interested in non-traditional publishing routes and have self-published a series of three science fiction novellas - 'Sam Cane: Hard Setdown', 'Sam Cane: Hard Lessons' and 'Sam Cane: Hard Time'. I've got more of those planned, as well as web-shorts following the continuing trials of Sam Cane or set elsewhere or elsewhen in the same universe. I also have ideas rattling around my head for a couple of magical realism settings and (as T J Chant) exploring straight historical fiction as well. 

Right now I'm balancing this with a job in an office. The ultimate goal is to move away from office work and write full-time. As a step along the way, I've just reduced my hours (and thus pay) to make more time for being creative. I'm hoping this will help me increase my output, but I also need to keep a roof over my own head, not to mention my rabbits'. It's a very exciting time to be in the creative arts, and I want to devote as much time as possible to this.

Which, to get to the point, is why I'm here.
