Welcome to my chapter in the gargantuan book that is the internet! As you may have guessed, I’m a fantasy writer. And this is my space to celebrate two things I love—reading and writing.

You’ll Never Write Alone

Writing can be a tough and lonely pursuit, something we pour our hearts and souls into, and the results can be cruel. I know what it’s like to battle the demons of doubt, to suffer rejection and migraine-inducing frustration.

To combat those feelings, I study the craft as much as I can and what I learn I share for the benefit of you and everybody else. Head over to my blog, The Writer’s Tool Shed, for a stack of writing guides and support.

And to help you along on your quest, you can download a copy of my brand new book on writing, Thoughts On Writing, for free when you join my Community of Writers. It covers all aspects of storytelling, plus a look at building your author brand and getting your stories published.

Celebrate Your Love of Reading

I’m a reader as much as I am a fantasy writer. I love to escape into fantastical worlds and marry myself to the causes of charismatic and intriguing characters.

Now more than ever I feel that we could all do with an escape, and reading can give us that. So when you join my Community of Readers, you’ll receive a free copy of my collection of published short fiction, Flying On The Ground.

When I describe this as a community, I mean it. I’m always happy to review any bits of work or answer any writing-related queries you may have. And if I can’t help, I’ll do my best to find someone who can.

The way we improve is by helping each other and that’s the ethos behind everything I do.

A Home For Fantasy Authors

Like I said above, I try to help my fellow fantasy authors out as much as possible. Writing a fantasy novel is an incredibly tricky challenge, filled with pitfalls and obstacles. Even the best fantasy novelists struggle.

To help you out, I have a bunch of writing tools. You’ll be able to find:

If you prefer the written word, head over to my writing blog. There are hundreds of posts on there, covering pretty much evey aspect fantasy story writing, such as a complete guide on worldbuilding, writing fight scenes, and medieval archery and armour.

You’ll also find lots of useful posts on author marketing and book marketing and how to build your author brand.

I also co-host a podcast called The Fantasy Writer’s Toolshed, which is devoted to writing tips and discussions, all focused on writing fantasy fiction, as well as a bit of writing science fiction too.

You can find episodes on writing fantasy short stories, fantasy cliches, worldbuilding and twisting fantasy tropes, plus loads more topics helpful to the fantasy writer.

So, if you’ve always wanted to become a fantasy writer, you’ve found the right place.
