Writing

I have had articles, short stories, and a novella appear in various publications in the UK, Canada, and the USA. I have also occasionally worked as a writing consultant for a video game company, and I write for film in collaboration with the filmmaker Chris Spencer-Lowe. My latest is a science fiction novel, which I have recently begun sending out queries for (please see the about page for contact info if you are interested in inquiring about it):

The Fabulous Grey World of Vagabond

Once renowned for his mastery of a discipline that fuses quantum physics, Asian meditation techniques, and traditional magical arts, Vagabond is a colour-blind waveseer who sees all in shades of grey. He fell from the heights of success through his own hypocritical folly, addiction, and the betrayal of his fellow waveseers, but reinvented himself as an underground spy with the help of his lover, Skaha.

Together they are charged with stealing the mathematical fire of Urfoar, an artefact in the form of a giant planet, whose roiling storms are driven by the geometric logic of a long-lost technology. In doing so they must contend with interference from the chimasons, who employ devices that combine science with the occult, manipulating the dreaming psyche.

Like some later colonized planets, Earth has become a ‘grey world’, overrun by superstorms in the wake of ecological catastrophe. And yet a community has survived deep beneath the surface, in which young Aurora communicates with a spirit who teaches her, helping her talk to the sky. This spirit also enlists Vagabond to protect Aurora from the chimasons using his waveseer arts, which he does while enmeshed in his own labyrinth of espionage and tortured memory.

In many respects, beginning with Vagabond’s arc, this novel is a fable about people reinventing themselves and taking leaps of courage with the help of allies, when otherwise it feels like the curtains are falling.
