I write because it keeps me alive...

My day job has brought me to Budapest, fantastic capital city of Hungary. I am officially an expat. By day I toil and struggle in an industry which wants too much and doesn't dedicate the money, time or resource to get it. By night and weekend I am a book reviewer and author. If I am not writing, working or exploring the world and my new city, I am probably reading or cooking or both, and when life really demands it, I am watching Labyrinth and letting my imagination drift.

My epic fantasy trilogy about the Aethera is taking wonderful shape, and as the word length increases, my faith in it grows. If I have not managed to secure an agent by the time the third book has a 'finished draft' then I will look at self-publishing the series; the Aethera want their story to be told, and so do I.

Meanwhile in the virtual world I muse, ponder, share my reads, thoughts and adventures, and generally pop up from time to time, so feel free to explore, read some short examples of my writing on the bio page, see what I'm getting up to, and use the social links to follow me and find out more at Facebook, Twitter and Goodreads. Here and there I shall bare my soul, cloaked in fantasy and melodrama.

I have always had a vivid imagination, which is perfect for creating genre fiction and immersing myself in imaginary places. I take influence from my own experiences and those around me to explore what I see and feel and express it through this medium. There is always a story waiting to be told.

Writing gives me the creative output I need to make sense of the world. I write because I need to write. I write because it keeps me alive. To be a full time novelist is my dream. One day I hope the dream will be my reality.
