New Beginnings

A first post on a new blog is always a big challenge. But it doesn’t get any easier hundreds of posts down the line, so let’s just dive in!

So who am I? I’m not going to dance around the subject. The last thing you want to do is read through paragraphs of biography only to discover I’m not really your cup of tea.

I’m a fantasy writer and blogger on my former site Fantasy In Motion. I ran the site for many years and interviewed a whole host of fantasy authors. I also created a short-lived three-panel webcomic and wrote a load of flash fiction. But mostly it was a place to share my journey as I attempted to write a novel (after many, many attempts).

As an aside, I also create fantasy maps on commission through my business Curious Cartography.

I decided to create this new blog in my own name in order to promote my writing and get back into blogging. I really enjoy writing articles about science fiction and fantasy, and so I’m going to make a concerted effort to get back into the swing of it.

And, if (when?) the day comes that I become a published author, in some kind of glorious metamorphosis, this blog will become my author site.

Anyway, I’ll leave it there for now. I’m going to post a follow-up explaining more about the kind of content you will find on this blog, and introduce you to my short fiction setting “Under the Stained Sun”.

But most importantly, I’m off to do some writing and start producing stories for this place!

I am a British writer, blogger, artist and stalwart fan of the fantasy genre.

I like to eat ice cream and I really enjoy a nice pair of slacks.
