Short Stories & Projects
I won 2nd prize in a short story competition when I was about 5 (see pic above) in the Abbey Infants days called The Magic Box. I won a small notepad and pencil set.
I've written a short story called Cool to Lie which I'm submitting to sci-fi journal and one for the IBN Coffee project by Beyond Cataclysm.
I've written another sci-fi short story last year called Superfluous. It's about a futuristic influencer inspired by some events that I observed in Lanzarote last year. I'd like to get this published in an anthology.
My main project at the minute is an illustrated novella about a banker who gets cursed, I hope to publish it in 2024. I'm mainly writing this on the train too and from work.
I've also got a couple of short sci-fi stories I've planned and will work on in the after school creative writing group I run.
There's also a projected follow up sci-fi novel further down the line.

“…this energy crisis: what will our relationship towards it be? Will we be in a position where we can’t help other countries with less developed infrastructure? Those who haven’t been able to upgrade … “
“It is a flawed notion that individualism leads to greater happiness.” The legion of voices began, “We cannot help being part of an interconnected world, and it’s only through intelligent, coordinated action that we can improve individual happiness and give ourselves the best chance of survival and prosperity.”
“Technology is a two-way gate… For everything ever created with a use, it also has a misuse: a way to use it against its intended will.”
“How much more accurate and useful was the advice when your device is always listening? Scanning fingers, eyes, facial patterns, worry and most importantly the electrodermal flux contained on and outside the skin?”
