Just a weird little wordsmith from the United Kingdom. I write funny stuff that's sometimes dark, which is sort of how I look at life.

Debut novel, His Boy. Chasing Ghosts (Book One of The Quentin Strange Mysteries) coming June 2020.

“And some of us need to be sad. It’s the only way we can get others to see just how much pain we’re in.”
Dean Cole, Chasing Ghosts

“I knew the pain of losing someone I cared about, had spent years longing for their return. It isn’t the pain that’s abnormal. It’s the way people expect you not to feel it, as if you have the choice.”
Dean Cole, Chasing Ghosts

“I believe,’ he goes on, ‘that sometimes the universe gives us experiences we don’t want as a sort of test. It’s our chance to grow. And from personal experience, if we can learn to accept, to surrender to those experiences, life has a way of working out for us.”
Dean Cole, His Boy

“When you spend your childhood around someone who thinks it’s a miracle you’re still alive at the end of another year, it’s hard not to wonder what dangers are out there waiting to kill you. And the influences you have around you as a kid are like the programmers that write the software you run off when you’re older.”
Dean Cole, Chasing Ghosts

“When it comes to wine and buttocks, the redder, the better.”
Danny Tyran

“The best portion of a good man's life: his little, nameless unremembered acts of kindness and love.”
William Wordsworth, Lyrical Ballads

“A lot of people are afraid to say what they want. That's why they don't get what they want.”
Madonna

“They fuck you up, your mum and dad.
They may not mean to, but they do.
They fill you with the faults they had
And add some extra, just for you.

But they were fucked up in their turn
By fools in old-style hats and coats,
Who half the time were soppy-stern
And half at one another's throats.

Man hands on misery to man.
It deepens like a coastal shelf.
Get out as early as you can,
And don't have any kids yourself.”
Philip Larkin, High Windows
