You want to know about me?

In a nutshell, I write fiction and produce written content. Hit the buttons to find out more about those, or read on if you really want to get to know the person behind the words.

Still here? Okay, let’s get started.

I’ve always loved stories. From books to movies to games to music. Stories are how we learn about different experiences and points of view, and they can be entertaining as well as educational or informative. From a young age I lived in the worlds other people made, imagining what could be happening beyond the story told. Eventually, I started creating my own worlds, and putting them down in words for others to read and (hopefully) enjoy.

This took me to Manchester for university in 2009, and I never looked back. I started my career in digital marketing and content (SEO included) after graduating, and did everything I could to keep improving my skills while working on my first books.

As much as I love writing and telling stories, the travel bug hit me in my late 20s. I’d always liked going to new places but trips to Prague and Budapest in 2017 really cemented that I wanted to see more of the world.

In 2018, I started a year long adventure to Australia – which ended up being 3 years! It didn’t end with Australia, though, as the latter half of that adventure took me to Aotearoa New Zealand as well as a short trip to south east Asia. Proving I could live out of a rucksack for that long opened my eyes, and I have plans to travel more in the future.

I returned to Manchester in 2012 , bought a house, and settled back into work – but with a better understanding of who I am and what I wanted. I released my first books in 2021 (Introductions: Volume One and Reality Check), and haven’t looked back.

The ultimate goal has to be to sell enough books to live on, travel more, and see as much of the world as I can. This is a journey I’m looking forward to sharing with you, and while I’m not the best at using social media for myself, I’m always happy to chat over any platform I’m on (even if it takes me a while to respond).
