Just another science fiction/fantasy writer?
I’m a writer based in Leeds, United Kingdom, but that’s just where I’m based, not what I write about or where my inspiration comes from.
I like writing allegories of the human condition using science fiction and fantasy settings. Am I qualified to write such books? I don’t know, but I enjoy doing so. There are heroic themes in a lot of my stories.
Some of my characters are:
- vulnerable, odd, and naïve
- defined by their job
- challenged by life, facing their worst demons, and always reaching for an understanding they can’t quite touch
- seeking power as the only way to escape the trappings of their existence
- finding their true destiny
What inspires me to write? I’ll let you know.
