Welcome

Welcome to my chapter in the gargantuan book that is the internet. 

This is my little space to celebrate the two things I love nothing more in life—reading and writing—and to share that passion with like-minded people, just like yourself.

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 constant 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 free copy of my brand new self-help book on writing, Thoughts On Writing, currently for sale on Amazon, when you join my Community of Readers and Writers. I sincerely hope it helps you out. It covers all aspects of storytelling, plus a look at building your author brand and getting your stories published.

I’m a reader as much as I am a 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 and Writers, you’ll also recieve a free copy of my collection of published short fiction, Flying on the Ground. Again, this is on sale on Amazon, but as a welcome gift from me to you for joining the Community, I’m giving it to you for free.

You need not worry about being spammed with sales pitches if you join the Community. I’ll only get in touch when I have free books or reads to giveaway or if I have any new writing tools or guides you may find useful.

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. So drop me an email and say hello!

Thanks for stopping by!
