About

book3 I’m a writer of strange fiction, currently living in the East of England. I was born in Hong Kong, grew up in Bangkok, and have since moved back and forth between here and there.

I am a graduate of the Warwick MA in Writing, and my stories and poems have appeared in a number of magazine and anthologies, including Clockwork Phoenix 3Stone Telling, Penning Perfumes and Beneath Ceaseless Skies – a full list can be found here. My work has been a finalist for the James White Award and the Parsec Award.

As well as being a writer I also wear a number of other (related) hats. With Claire Trévien, I’m the co-editor of Verse Kraken, a magazine for experimental, multimedia and cross-genre art of all kinds. I was Writer-in-Residence at Shrewsbury International School from 2008-2010, and have continued to run workshops and offer creative writing tuition since then (see my workshops page for more info). Currently, I’m running the Queer Fandom track at London’s coolest new convention, Nine Worlds GeekFest.

When I was four I wanted to be a professional diorama-maker when I grew up; these days I think I’d like to be a genderfluid cyborg on Mars.
