About Me

I am a full-time professional writer with extensive credits in licensed fiction, tabletop gaming and video game writing. In particular I have written several novel series for Games Workshop’s Black Library imprint, including the Soul Drinkers and Grey Knights series, and contributions to the Horus Heresy series.

I have also written for several tabletop roleplaying games, including co-designing Sleeper: Orphans of the Cold War, and wrote plot and dialogue for the video game Warhammer 40,000: Mechanicus.

I have a long-standing love for gaming of all kinds, and writing fantasy and science fiction. I live on the South Coast of England where I write, paint miniatures, play games and participate in local theatre.
