Life is definitely too short. There are so many interesting things to do, and not enough time to try them all. So, much as I’d like to have a go at everything, I try to keep myself focused in my passions – writing, leather crafts, and plants.
They are, if you like, the itches I can’t stop scratching.
You should always have two or three passions. More than that and you spread yourself too thin. One obsession is, of course, too much.
And talking. Talking to each other is one of the nine* great joys.

*Or maybe it’s nineteen. I just wrote nine without thinking. Probably shouldn’t have done that.
Or we can do it this way:
I’ve sold over 30 short stories to various magazines, anthologies, and podcasts. In 2016 I won the British Fantasy Society short story competition. I have also had work short-listed for the James White Award, and placed third in the Aeon Award.
I’ve also edited and published the charity SF anthology Mind Seed, and the experimental The Redensive Epiphanies of Pouty McNavel.
I’ve also been a judge for the Arthur C. Clarke and James White Awards, and am the current Chair of the Milford SF group.
I was born in Africa but I’m not African, I live in England, but I don’t feel English. I was baptised by King Neptune, and live in South London with the fantasy writer Gaie Sebold behind several tree ferns.
