Angelina Troy was a woman of legend. Seasoned veterans feared her sword and gods themselves lusted after her body, just as demons in the pits of the darkest hells loathed her and her necromantic power. Nothing, it seemed, could bring her down. Then she…

Saturday night was home-made pasta night.  Superwife and I love it, as do The Wonderkids.  This time, it was ravioli with chevre* (how do you pronounce that???) cheese filling.  Miss9 helped from start to finish.  I rolled out the pasta sheets through our…

Now before you reach for the burning oil and pitchforks, lemme explain.  I don’t dislike strong females.  Quite the contrary.  I married one, I’m the son of one, and I’m doing my darndest to help  my two daughters become strong themselves.  I write about…

I have been guilty of using that terminology, but I do wholeheartedly agree with you.

Who remembers this?

"One fine day in the middle of the night, two dead men got up to fight. Back to back they faced each other, drew their swords and shot each other!"

Yes. It's Friday and my week-long tentative grasp on my sanity it slipping earlier than usual

And then there's this, for which I have no words other than, "Thank-you, Youtube!"

This weekend confirmed something I’ve feared for a while now.  I’m old.  Well, I guess 45 isn’t so old that I’m about to croak any minute, but it’s old enough for me to say “I’m never staying up that late again,” and actually mean it. Friday night,…

Here’s why.  For me, even though I do have a preference, it’s not really about who wins or loses.  Aussie battlers like us have survived bad governments before, and we’ll survive them again if and when they come.  No, for me, and millions of other…

Work
Occupation
If only being a dork could be a profession... By day, I work in my family business. By night, oh who am I kidding? I've got two young kids, and that means sleep's a rare thing. I write when I can, and nobody else is looking.
Employment
  • Gilmour's Pty Ltd.
    Chief cook and bottle washer
    It's not glamorous, and there's no bigass German car in my driveway, but I'm not in a psych ward or jail, so that's a plus.
Story
Tagline
Fantasy writer. Bi-phasic rapid cycler. Bad influence. Nerd.
Introduction
Fantasy Writer. Book & film nerd. Unrepentant carnivore.  Dog person.  I can get cranky.

I'm an indy author and proud of it, hence the whole Amazon KDP Select thing, but when it comes to exposure, I have no shame!  If it'll get me sales or publicity, (and perhaps maybe the attention of a traditional publisher who'll take me on,) I'll do just about anything.

If you're one of my contacts, either through email, social media or even the day-job, you can expect the occasional email from me if I have any big news like when I'm doing a free promo or releasing a new story.

Now if that rubs you up the wrong way, and I know it might, you really shouldn't put your email address in your public profile.

If you do get an email from me when you'd rather not, don't get all huffy.  Just reply with a simple "Shut up already!  I've got enough going on in my own life without you filling up my inbox with your self-promotional garbage!", and I'll remove you from my address book.

Really.  I'm not into spamming people.  I get enough of it of my own.

I also do the odd review occasionally, but it's usually on a you-review-mine, I'll-review-yours basis.  I can also proof/beta read/assess manuscripts. POA.

Other random pieces and bits...

I don't fold - I scrunch.  I don't like broad (lima) beans.  If curry isn't hot enough to make me sweat, it's not hot enough.  It's never too early for a hamburger.

Whenever possible, my backpack contains a compass, torch (that's a flashlight to you non-Aussies) and a Swiss army knife.

'I like their old stuff better than their new stuff' can be applied to just about every band's album I've ever purchased.

You know those 3D posters that are all squiggles until you focus your eyes away from them to see the image?  I've never been able to see the image.

Oh, one more thing.  If you've made it to the bottom of this, then you've just earned yourself a gold star.  Well done.  You've proved you can pay attention.  

Now stop messing about online and go do some work.  Better yet, go check out my books.  Who knows, you might find something you like!

Or, you could stalk me on other social media.  The links are all there.  I don't bite, so long as you don't post nudie rudie stuff on my timeline, or tag me in those damned annoying ads for sunglasses.
