I'm a writer with mental health labels, writing about being a writer with mental health labels: Pinhead with Post-It notes. I started writing on the streets, like a budget Charles Bukowski. As a scientific atheist, I believe science and religion can co-exist. With so many looming existential threats to our planet, I imagine a world where humanity might unite in a common cause to save the home we share with those who were here before. In a more positive future, I see a fairer redistribution of wealth and a universal basic income financed by a tax levied on those who collect our personal data. I'm a liberal socialist, an anarchist in the name of freedom and liberty against fascism. I write portent and hope, fiction and faction, under my own name, and as a freelance copywriter and ghostwriter. I've had over 60 stories published online and in print. I've published two novels (one critically-acclaimed), two anthologies and an award-winning children's book. I'm working on other books and I continue to write short stories for a third collection. The rest is contained within this blog, where I wear my heart on my left hand.
