To paraphrase Dylan Thomas, I hold a beast, an angel and a madman inside me; yes, dear reader – I am an author!
I have been a contributor to the Times Literary Supplement, The Tangerine magazine, 3: AM magazine, Berfrois and STORGY, and had an essay – Profundity is a Slim Volume by an Obscure European Author – published at Minor Literature[s].
I was also the inaugural winner of the Verso Prize for work on speculative aesthetics, part of a Masters in Cultural and Critical Studies at Birkbeck, University of London.
My long-form writing often blends genre novels with novels of ideas. I am currently looking to place a trilogy of interlinked novellas (Detective Story) which offer a playful examination of the philosophy of detective fiction. The novellas include a noir based on Wittgenstein’s life; a locked-room mystery; and a futuristic re-imagining of Sherlock Holmes.
My writing is often of a satirical and humorous bent and I returned to this in 2017, unleashing an ameliorative podcast of dark comedy for decadent times, The Latte Art Catastrophe.
