I am a writer. I would like to be a professional author, but even more-so I would like to be a better writer. That’s what this blog is about.
I studied a variety of courses trying to find my way through uni. Eventually I settled on a Creative Writing Major with Philosophy and Cinema Studies as minors and a side-interest in History and Cultural Studies. My English study found its way unexpectedly into a study of Classics, Middle English, Chaucer and ultimately to a translation of “Beowulf” from the original Anglo-Saxon text. I think these studies have influenced my writing, or perhaps my interest in these areas has influenced both my study and my writing.
I live in Melbourne, Australia with a wife, two kids, a full-time job, a commitment to amateur football (of the Australian variety), and (all-too-rarely) a little bit of spare time to devote to my writing.
My Low Fantasy short story “A Choice of Kings” has been accepted by Dark Edifice magazine, and is due to be published later this year.
I hope you enjoy my efforts. Feel free to poke around the blog and please like / comment / rate or contribute as you wish.
