I'm a freelance writer and this is my online portfolio. It’s aimed not only at readers who enjoy what I do, but also at any editors out there who may be interested in working with a happening fella such as myself.
What sort of thing do I write? Mostly comics at the moment (and no I don’t draw the pictures), but I also write prose fiction. Have a look around the Comics and Fiction sections for full details. If you’d rather cut to the chase, see the Bibliography section for a comprehensive no-frills list of everything I’ve ever had published (everything I’d ever want to admit had published, anyway).
Now go take a look around. I’ll be here if you want tea or anything…
