Personal Goals: Apart from getting my first graphic novel – Displaced – published, I want to make some short SF film ideas with the Habitual Films team and get them exhibited at a film festival or two. One day I’d like to be a writer of graphic novels, television, videogames and film.
A little about me: I’ve been writing for a long time. As a kid growing up in Cornwall, I’d always have some “novel” project on the go. But it wasn’t until I studied for my MA that I realised that my writing style was too visual to really work in novels and that’s when I began to specialise in film scripts and graphic novels. Until I reach my personal fiction writing goals, I’m surviving through a mixture of online business writing and videogames journalism.
