Hello, and welcome!

For those who don't know, I am an author and freelance writer based in the UK, and my first novel, The Less than Perfect Legend of Donna Creosote, was published by the brilliant Bluemoose Books (seriously, check out their latest releases here). I also have over fifty short fiction publications, in formats that range from printed anthologies to comics to podcasts and online magazines. And a couple of short story competition wins, too.

I am currently at work on a range of new projects, and I will be using this site primarily to provide updates on those, including links to any publications, and possibly some extracts from works-in-progress as well. I also aim to provide a few reviews and recommendations of novels, stories, comics, films, music, etc., as and when the mood takes me (and when energy, funding, and time permit). In addition, as any followers of my twitter feed can no doubt attest, there's a good chance that my writing shed will make an appearance. I might even add bits about bouldering, too, depending on when my local climbing gym can reopen. And maybe throw in a few pictures of trees. I hope that you decide to accompany me on my ongoing journey from one tale to the next - and that you all enjoy the ride as much as I intend to! In the meantime, be sure to support the creators you love, and try (despite everything...) to find the time to indulge your own artistic passions, because you never know where they might lead... Take care, and thanks for dropping by! - Dan

It’s been a slow and often faltering year for reading books, unfortunately, and there are a few (mainly the non-fiction, and a couple of short story collections) named here that I still haven’t finish

2020 Hindsight: My Year in Review - Part 1

Firstly, apologies for the obvious and no doubt already-overused title, but I couldn’t resist - it’s been such an unusual, dire, and largely frustrating year on so many fronts that it only feels fair
