I'm a just sixty (honest) poet, novelist and oral storyteller working in the shadow of The Black Mountain, in the mist and myth haunted land of Wales. When not writing I'm usually lost (with the help of a GPS) on top of a mountain, looking for dragons. I haven't found one yet, but it's only a matter of time...

I'm a speculative fiction writer, with emphasis on horror, fantasy and now sci fi. I've also some pedigree in Flash Fiction, which is both challenging and tremendous fun to write - and maybe to read.

Again, as with Chloe below Ed, apologies for the delay as I've not been around too much for 10 days or so.

To be loved by readers, a character - good or bad- has to be empathetic and sympathetic. I'm presently writing a piece in which I have a character who has, for me, the biggest fault in the world - racism- and I'm trying to make the other sides of him attractive so that the readers will want him to change, so that they can like him properly.(less)

The marketing, Chloe! I'm a bit late replying, please forgive me: I did the World Sci Fi Convention as a dealer, and still haven't recovered.

But it's selling online that I find hard. face to face is fine, hence Loncon3 and York and Bristol conventions coming up, but the online thing ? *Shakes head*(less)

Fortunately the direction is kind to the poor polytunnel, so it has stayed in place. So far.
