Check out my side project Becoming an 'Expert': A Fantasy Writer's Journey where I document my quest to fulfill a lifelong passion to become an expert on fantasy literature.

To the blog!

My most recent visit to a historical location was the West Kennet Long Barrow - pictured here - which inspired an entire section of my current novel-in-progress!

We also visited the nearby Neolithic standing stones and Silbury Hill monument in Avebury.

I am currently reading Drachenfells by Kim Newman - a Warhammer Fantasy novel recommended to me by my partner!

My favourite view is right outside my writing room window. This picture was taken early one Winter morning and I have loved it since.
