About Me

Hi, and welcome to my site.

I’ve never been fond of this ‘about me’ stuff, so bear with me.

I’m a writer of speculative fiction, and this is what I’ve always been. In my case, that tends to range between fantasy, horror and the just plain weird. I used to tell these stories in my head, but after a little more exposure to the real world I started to realise this could be seen as, well, unusual. So I stuck a pen in my hand, a keyboard under my fingers, and wrote them down. I hoped that if I enjoyed them this much, maybe everyone else would too. Those stories that have made their way into the big wide world (and even survived!) can be found at my Novels or Short Stories¬†page.

I’ve been a finalist for a few Aurealis Awards and Ditmars.

My collection The Bone Chime Song and Other Stories won the 2013 Aurealis Award for Best Collection! And I won the 2012 Ditmar for Best New Talent!
