I live in sunny Perth, Western Australia. I work in security and I.T. My interests include military history, physics, strategy gaming, martial arts, sketching, engineering, comedy, game theory and etymology. I like to read about unusual settings and bizarre worlds that are a little outside the regular comfort zone. I like to contemplate the impossible and wrap my head around alien places and unorthodox inhabitants. I primarily write sci-fi or sword and sorcery. I am currently writing about the world of Archea, a moonless planet dominated by reptiles, but host to numerous stranded visiting species, including humans. Because it isn't tilted on its axis, Archea experiences only summer and winter and in both hemispheres simultaneously. It is a large tropical and very volcanic planet. The people of Archea struggle for space, as well as resources both arcane and mundane.
