Thanks for stopping by, San Diego... or wherever you're from. This website is not incredibly information-dense at the moment, i'm just playing hobo with my domain name, but every once in a while I'll post content
I have a Goodreads author page, with some links, anthologies to buy and my unapologetic reading choices.
Due to my playing dangerously, I've even included social media icons somewhere on this page. (wow, sure hope I don't regret that...)
For those rare strangers who've wondered past, I'm a speculative fiction (SF, F, H - you name it) writer who lives in Melbourne, Australia.
I'm an Aurealis, Ditmar and Writer's of the Future nominee, along with several other prizes and publications. ful details HERE.
My various obsessions have no sense or patterns, I love synchronicity, the ocean, giant robots and monstrous things. I write horror sometimes, especially when I'm feeling horrible. I love cyberpunk. weird fiction, quantum physics, urban design, bad romance. I could probably talk for hours about transformative fiction and Transformers. My favourite movies are Adaptation and The Abyss, and my biggest unsolved mystery is why The Abyss has never been released on Blu-Ray. Prefers Nazguls over Dragons, chimeras over unicorns.
I tweet when I'm lazy, Facebook when I'm social. Tell me something awesome.'
