Hello to you

I live in England, and write fiction.

  • Last year, in 2020, I wrote a 90,000+ word manuscript. It’s a science fiction, crime thriller.
  • I completed an MA in Creative Writing at Birkbeck, University of London, in 2019.

This is my personal website where I review books and films, and sometimes I write about other things — whatever interests me.

As the brilliant Clive James once said:

If I decide it’s interesting, then it’s interesting.

If you’d like to contact me

If you have a question about my writing, or regarding one of the posts on this site, you’re more than welcome to email me.

About the reviews on this site

I receive emails (on a daily basis) for unsolicited book reviews, or participation in blog tours.

Please note, I ONLY review books and films that I choose to read or watch, things that personally interest me.

I do read books and watch films that I really like, or don’t like, and I’m not compelled to write about. Usually, this is because I don’t have an angle that I want to explore.

For me, these reviews are my personal scratchpad. They are closely related to my development as a writer, and that’s why I want total freedom, and I don’t want them to feel like an obligation or work. As a result of this:

  • I don’t accept requests for book reviews.
  • I do not participate in blog tours.
  • I do not take payment (in any form) for them.

I’ve written about the process I use to rate the books and films reviewed on this site.

Images and copyright

If you’re the copyright holder of an image used on this website, and you would like it taken down, please contact me, and I’ll remove it.

Random other stuff

There’s a collection of dusty old projects, odd mish-mash, and whatnot that’s safely hidden away in The Archive.
