4/May/17 It's been ages!

Yes, I've been a lazy writer (and submitter!) of late. Nevertheless, I'm absolutely delighted to have a story in the latest issue of LossLit Magazine

5/May/14 There it is!

The 2014 issue of Shadows & Tall Trees (with my story in it) is out now and can be purchased everywhere, e.g. here at Undertow Publications

26/Feb/14 My Library in Synaesthesia Magazine!

'The Library', an essay about my strange book-related synaesthesia, originally written for Paraxis in 2011, has found a new home in the current issue of Synaesthesia Magazine. The issue is themed NONSENSE and it's a thing of beauty.

4/Dec/13 Exciting news!

I'm delighted to announce that my story The Statue has been purchased by Undertow Publications for volume 6 of their beautiful publication Shadows & Tall Trees, due out in May 2014.

4/April/13 STILL shortlisted!

'STILL', Roelof Bakker's Anthology of stories (one of them by me) inspired by photographs of an abandoned town hall has been shortlisted for the Saboteur Awards. Congratulations to Negative Press and, of course, fingers crossed!

23/Jan/13 Paraxis 04!

What's new? My illustrated children's book is with the publishers, so that's good. I'll let you know if one of them makes an offer. There are a number of new projects lined up and come spring I hope to be able to tell you more. Meanwhile, I recommend you read Paraxis 04. It's wonderful and features a story by Man Booker-shortlisted Alison Moore and I got to do an illustration.


26/Sep/12 STILL launch!

Still is the first print publication by Negative Press London, a new imprint aiming to publish collaborative books and other print publications with writers, editors and other artists.

Still combines twenty-six new short stories with the photographs that were the inspiration for the writing. I had the privilege to write one of those stories.

The book will be launched at Foyles, 113-119 Charing Cross Rd, London WC2H 0EB, with a literary event on 26 September. Foyles will also host an exhibition of photographs from Still (18 September to 31 October)


9/Feb/12 Paraxis 03 is up!

Paraxis is back with a wonderful new volume. I'm very happy to have been able to contribute as an illustrator.


25/Oct/11 Ambit 206 launched!

The latest issue of Ambit magazine features one of my pieces. It's called 'Divine Intervention', which is the third short story of my 2011 Building Inspector series. I hope you enjoy it!


30/Sep/11 Paraxis 02 is online!

Paraxis is a brilliant online publisher of short stories. Their second volume, which features pieces of fiction and non-fiction as well as great artwork on the theme of libraries, is out on the 30th September. Take a look, it's marvellous. I'm very excited to have been able to contribute with an account of the virtual library in my head as well as an illustration to go with it.
