Hello, it's you! You've already helped me to fight against the supernatural despite having lost your memory, you've rescued fluffy-tailed friends, and battled hordes of silvery killer bat-thingies. Let us now look to the future, my worthies, and make even more enthralling stories together.

WHO THE WHAT WHEN NOW?
I've been writing for decades, and have published novels, anthologies and short stories since 2012. My second novel 'Fog' won the SIBA Best Mystery award 2016. I've just edited and published the post-apocalyptic linked-tale anthology, 'Human 76' (" thought-provoking, layered fiction"). I've never been happy to be tied to one genre, and am now working on a tale of magic, mystery and murder set in 1322 Northamptonshire. Also in the pipeline are Rollie, a biography that I have been commissioned to write of an American pilot who risked his US citizenship to fly for the RAF at the start of WW2 and simmering away in the background is an as-yet-unnamed alien invasion novel. On top of these major works, I emit a steady stream of short stories. Oh, and I take photographs too.

Any support you can give is greatly appreciated, you lovely buggers, but you know what? Just having you join me in creating memorable stories is really the most splendid thing of all. Thank you!

I will do all the writing, but you will be fully involved in the development and direction of the book, and be credited as co-author when it is published. If you then continue to support me at this level, the same will apply the following year (plus all the stuff from earlier tiers).
