I was on the Fantasy Fiends podcast!

I joined the guys on the Fantasy Fiends podcast to talk about the many faces of addiction, a theme that crops up again and again in my fiction.

During the show we talk about compulsion and addiction and the ways authors can use those themes in their work.

Andy and Stevie also gave a rousing performance of my short story Basilisk on a Yellow Field from my short story collection Her Name Was Red.

Wizard of the Wasteland is now live!

I am very excited to announce that my debut novel Wizard of the Wasteland is now available in paperback, Kindle, and Kindle Unlimited.

Wizard of the Wasteland is a post-apocalyptic adventure set a generation after the end of the civilised world. It follows the story of Abel, a reformed drug addict, who joins a travelling showman’s magic show.

When the pair come across a group of children being held captive by the brutal drug gang The Family, Abel must give everything he has to save them.

Early reviewers have said the book is like Stephen King’s The Stand meets Cormac McCarthy’s The Road, and offers a fresh take on the genre.
