2016

This was a massive year! It seemed to fly by and yet so much happened. Some of the highlights… I took a lot of selfies, including this one to do with Contact. In writing stuff, I loved attending conventions and having Uncontainable published in Apex Magazine. But I really tried to focus more on what […]

Back Home and Swancon Highlights

If no-one comes I’ll enjoy […]

So, I drove up to Brisbane on Friday 11th uncertain of what to expect. Speculative fiction conventions have been my thing since 2010 but I knew […]
