SONY DSCEven though I gained a degree in Environmental Science and had plans to disappear into the rainforest, I somehow fell into a life of books and loved it. After a stint in bookstores, I worked for several years a mass market SF and Fantasy publisher as an editor. Now I’m a writer.

In addition to several fantasy novels published by Pan Macmillan, I’ve written short stories, a science fiction piece for BBC Radio 4 , the occasional feature for Huffington Post and was a reviewer for The Ecologist magazine. If that wasn’t enough, in my spare time I also run a whisky website.

If you want to drop me a line, please feel free to do so – it’s always nice to hear from people.
