About the Author

I’m a teacher of Computing and a keen fantasy movie fan from the leafy suburbs of North London.

I absolutely adore any film from Guillermo del Toro (especially Pan’s Labyrinth, Devil’s Backbone and Cronos) and am a big 80s fantasy film fan (with my favourite’s including Labyrinth, Big Trouble in Little China and Blade Runner).

I also have a big passion for Anime and am slightly obsessed by the genius director,  Hayao Miyazaki for his work on Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke and Howl’s Moving Castle.

From an early age I had always had a passion for writing stories which would take the reader to different fantasy worlds and realms. With a little confidence and the ease of publishing novels on the internet, I have now self-published five fantasy stories to date:


The Orcus Games Trilogy

The Orcus Games: Blood Moon (Book 1)

The Orcus Games: Mistress V (Book 2)

The Orcus Games: New Awakening (Book 3)


The Split Blood Series

Split Blood: The Ancient Codex – Part One (Book 1)

Split Blood: Rise of the Wolf (Book 2)


So far the majority of the feedback has been positive and I thank you for all your support. It has been amazing to connect with the readers and fellow fantasy film and Anime fans and I look forward to continuing this journey throughout my writing experience.
