I’m a writer based in Thorpe Hamlet, Norfolk. As well as my blog (sign up using the box to your right to get weekly updates direct to your inbox), I’m also now a published author.

My first novella, Playtime’s Over, was published by Propolis in 2021. Playtime’s Over is the story of Will, a young man on the brink of taking his own life, who is taken on a journey of recollection and sensation by Viktor, the manifestation of the small voice at the back of Will’s mind. It was written as a response to my own mental health issues and worldview, using a fictional format to examine, and hopefully process, my own depression and anxiety. It’s also a love letter to my home city of Norwich.

It is, I promise, a lot funnier than that sounds.

My second book, Greyskin will be released in April 2023 by Deixis Press. Greyskin is a fantasy western, a collection of interwoven settlers tales that paint a picture of the colonisation of a newly discovered continent and the fate of the indigenous people who live there, as well as delivering a rich streak of action and adventure.

I’m very excited about this book and hope it brings as much enjoyment to you reading it as it did for me writing it.

Outside of this, I have interests in books, classical music, film and the environment. I collect postcards, scifi paperbacks from the 50s/60s/70s, comics and Lego. I’m a paid-up member of the Green Party, which you can join here.

I also self-publish sci-fi and fantasy under the name Ray Adams.
