I write fantasy books, children's books, some TV stuff from time to time, and I have recently gotten into game writing and design.

I've also been a stand-up comic for about twenty years.

Bedlam Cards is a game I kickstarted.

My website is full of nonsense.

Here is my facebook author page.

Hi Kristy

Thanks very much, I’m glad you enjoyed them. I’ve been working for a while on the first book in new series, a sci fi comedy adventure called (tentatively) ‘Scharlotte Doesn’t Matter and Goes Time Travelling’. I like the title but maybe it’s too long, what do you think? It’s been a long writing process because I have the stated (mainly to myself) aim to make it a time travel story without any plot holes. Argh. Even with certain made-up rules and tech to get around common paradoxical questions (‘What happens if you go back in time and shoot your father before he meets your mother?’) this has proven a challenge, and resulted in many hours lying on a couch staring at the ceiling with my brain melting out my ears like vanilla custard. However, I’m glad to tell you that the first draft is now complete and I’m in editing mode, so it shouldn’t be too much longer. It’s probably going to be an indie release, which is something I’ve dabbled in previously with shorter and sillier works, but this will be the first time I’ve attempted it with a full length novel (and series). If you want to be notified the very moment it’s available, please feel free to join the tens of people on my mailing list:

Otherwise stay tuned, I’m sure I’ll bang on about it across every available platform once it is finally out there :)

Thanks again,

They mostly started life as random characters born of single imagined moments, unattached to any story, and came together to chat once they realised they all had pretty weird powers. They got acquainted and bickered quite a bit before the pen relieved the pressure.

Salarkis’s first moment was standing by the road pretending to be various statues, freaking out the people walking by. Despirrow’s was in the town when he … well, you know, with the leaves. I shouldn’t write spoilers on my own goodreads page, I guess!

Forger was the most fun. So awfully happy while he goes about committing his heinous acts.

Mergan wasn’t much fun at the beginning. Trying to get into his head at the point where we find him made me feel a bit mentally disturbed. But then later on, with the jam and such, much more fun. See, how vague am I being now? But you know what I mean :)

Thanks for you question Leigh,
Sam(less)

Had me laughing a lot during the first half. Became a bit predictable in the second half, and the action sequences felt a bit lacking of excitement, but it kept me going. Enjoyable, light and light-hearted.
