"I have written since I was old enough to string a sentence together. I have always enjoyed writing stories as well as reading them. At a young age I was enthralled with Fantasy Stories and spent many an hour reading about far off lands and mythical creatures.
When I was fifteen I started writing my first fantasy book, ‘The Raystone,’ and now fifteen years later it’s on sale around the world with respective sequels following. In between writing these I have also dabbled in sci-fi and my first work of this genre, ‘The Darkest Day,’ has proved to be an extremely popular publication. More sci-fi/futuristic work is currently being drafted.
In 2011 I began self-publishing and since then have never looked back. I’m looking forward to sharing my experience with those at Camcon this year and hopefully help others start their journey."
