When I was very little, I used to wear three or four hats at the same time; I couldn’t decide which was best, so I just wore all of my favourites. As soon as I could hold a pen and a plectrum, I was exactly the same with telling stories. I completed two degrees in creative and professional writing, but even then a project was never just one thing; I’d write it, draw it, sometimes even compose soundtrack-music for it as if it was a film. For me, it was just a natural extension of the story-creation process.
My TideBreakers project started as a world I could tell stories in. Very soon it became a world that I wanted to give to people so they could make their own awesome stories in as well. Having already worked on artwork and graphics, a TideBreakers card game was an easy step to make and the story series and card-game have been inter-connected almost from the project’s first inception.
I started TideBreakers when I was about fourteen, and there have been challenges and changes since then, but the project has held firm in my imagination. I’ve kept writing, I’ve kept drawing and I’ve kept composing music. The TideBreakers world is as strong as it ever was and I want to share my story and let other people play the game to tell their own. If you'd like more information about the game, you can download the rules and free samples at tidebreakers.com/game. If you'd like to start a crew and embark on your own TideBreakers adventure, you can support me on Patreon.com/tidebreakers for access to exclusive card game components.
It'd be great if you'd like to join me on this adventure and hopefully many more story adventures in the future. Rest assured that I will never stop creating, in one form or another!
I also still wear hats, though nowadays it’s one at a time.
