About My Writing

I’ve been writing away (unpublished) for years and finally decided to go for it. My first and second novels are at the proofreading stage and hopefully will be published in 2018. They are meticulously researched fictionalised recreations of London and provincial society in the late 18th and early 19th century periods. They focus on the lives of ordinary people in extraordinary eras-the French Revolution and the Battle of Waterloo-and seek to show how differently physical and mental difference was regarded and manifested.

 

Meanwhile, I have been writing contemporary and historical short stories, mostly monologues, which are vivid and imagistic in style and often with a preternatural and surreal twist. Hope you enjoy my scribblings on this site.
