I spent most of my life so far in the small seaside town of Whitstable, which has left me with an enduring love of seafood and shingle. I spent three years attending something very like a certain Archers College, studying things that were not quite closest to my heart – leaving the really important stuff entirely self-taught, with the help of six bookcases full of remarkable literature. Time after that found me moving abroad to the sunny side of the alps, spending a year in Slovenia, overwintering in the remote mountains then oversummering in melancholy Ljubljana and enjoying the company of the pretty eastern European girls – with all aspects of the trip leaving an impression that will probably linger in my writing permanently.
My stories have appeared in the anthologies Strange Tales 1, 2 and 3 from Tartarus Press, Blind Swimmer from Eibonvale Press and most recently, in The Monster Book for Girls from Exaggerated Press. The surreal art-fable What the Giants Were Saying – the first appearance of the wandering girl Feather – was published by Eibonvale Press back in 2005 and my collection Feather was published in 2011.
