I shall be at FantasyCon again this year and on some programming:

On Friday I shall be doing a reading at 8pm alongside Jan Edwards and Chris Donaldson

On Saturday I’ll be on wo panels (there’s a possibility I’ll be on a panel on Sunday too – the list isn’t quite finalised)

Saturday 4pm Panel room 1 – Being BFA Nominees


An award nomination can be a great confidence booster for a writer. It can also lead to all sorts of new opportunities. Our panel of BFA nominees will discuss what got them to this stage and what they hope their nominations will bring in the future.

Saturday 5:30 Panel room 3 -Writing Short Fiction


Short stories are the life blood of Fantasy, Horror and Science Fiction. With Drabbles, Flash Fiction, Ultra Shorts, Poetry and the more traditional 2500-5000 word pieces all having their place, our panelists talk about what works form them in writing the short.
