I come bearing good news; I’m delighted to announce I’m joining Angry Robot!
My second novel, sci-fi thriller HellSans, has been scooped up in their roboty paws and will be launched into the world in January 2023 [EDIT: publication has been brought forward to 11 Oct 2022]. You can read about it in The Bookseller.
“HellSans is fierce, fast, and fun, and shines a bright light on how society works against the marginalised.”– Simon Spanton, Angry Robot editor
Special shout-out to Creative Scotland for funding me to write HellSans. Their support made a huge difference, as I was struggling after having to give up my part-time day job due to chronic illness.
I’ve started work on novel 3, with a synopsis, research plan, research book shelf in place, and a few scenes scribbled, but the past year has been dominated by my work with fellow writer Julie Farrell to bring Inklusion to life.
I’m very pleased to say we reached our funding target for stage 1 and we’ll be hitting the ground running on the R&D in the new year. We also have the bulk of stage 2 pinned down, with support from some fantastic organisations. Here’s to not going back to normal!
