I’m a professional Tarot reader but also work as a professional freelance writer, writing Tarot-related content, features and articles for various clients, and with other writing published, including short fiction, flash fiction and verse.
I’ve always been a bookworm. Books are a form of travel, flying carpets.
Psychic divination, reading and writing. Story-finding, story-telling and story- processing, it comes from the same place within us all.
Besides professional non-fiction writing, I have had short fiction, flash fiction and verse published digitally and in print, in anthologies and magazines, including, but not exhaustively, Ask Astrology, Attune Magazine, Crack The Spine Magazine, Litro Magazine, The Literary Review, and others.
I have written a finished novel, a modern coming of age story with added ghosts, inspired by the ancient Greek myth and the story of Charon the Ferryman. A grieving young policeman is desperate to lay the dead to rest and move on with his life, but ancient legends do not lie and the dead do not lie down.
I have another novel in progress, and as per usual with this novel writing activity, there are files containing failed, shelved or simply dormat experiments.
Writing fiction is a solitary activity, and that is how I like it, at least when it comes to the drafting, if not the editing, but I am actively involved in one writing hangout, the very friendly…and international writing community at Litopia.
I scout for special guests -authors, agents or publishers, for Pop-Up Submissions, a weekly video podcast show hosted by London literary agent Peter Cox. I sometimes appear myself as a panellist on the show.
For more about Pop-Up Submissions, see Links at the bottom of the page.
I have had poems published in a number of book anthologies and regional magazines and online publications. Below is my first ever published poem, ‘Compute Awe’, published in the Literary Review.
Designed a World in RAM and ROM
The Programme’s called Till Kingdom Come
No viruses have crashed it yet
Designed by TheDevil@Helldotnet
Old Nick the Hacker means to win
So far he’s failed; we’re still plugged in
And hear the God-computer hum
The universal sound of ‘Om’
Creation real and unpretending
In countless files with files still pending
From here to nebulas most far
From single cell to giant star
For all a life from birth to death
And in-between its every breath
Our highest inspiration
And spirit’s destination
The ROM His Universal Laws
The RAM means; choices, chances, flaws
And Life that cannot be destroyed
Its bits and bytes just re-deployed
In awe we stand, in hope we pray
The Programme runs till Judgment Day.
