I'm a comic fantasy YA author. I like cartoons and books and games and stuff!

About 90% of my gallery is original work so please check it out! I mostly work with fairy tales, folklore and mythology, but I will poke fun at anything I like, so there's other stuff in there too...

My debut novel, Eggs, Butter, Sugar and Disaster came out on the 22nd October 2011.
My second book, Miss Prince, was published on 14th May 2014.
The Map is the Treasure and Vampires Don't Belong in Fairyland were published in Feb/April 2016.
Magic and Other Things in Bottles was published 8th April 2018.

Vampires Don't Belong in Fairytales, my webcomic, runs alongside the books.

I'm working on a few other books in the Vampires Don't Belong in Fairytales series too.
Interests
More edit: I added a bit, since it seemed potentially confusing in one part.

EDIT:  I wrote a blurb today.

It seems okay? Thoughts?
---

Will has taken a gap year to find his roots, which most people assume means he's related to a tree. This is because he's taking his gap year in Fairyland, where it's entirely possible.

His mother used to tell him stories about Fairyland and how it was a terrible place where monsters were waiting to gobble him up. It was really no way to discourage a small boy.

He's on a quest to find his changeling great grandmother, not get eaten by anyone and put off getting a proper job for another year.

Armed with a hooded cloak to hide his ears, a bag of props and his love of Shakespeare, he lands himself the position of court jester, for King Tyrian of the Dark Realm.

But after a lifetime of longing, his co-workers don't seem to like him, his mother was right about the monsters, his boss has a crush on him, and he's no idea what to do about any of it.

He really did his research this time, but no battle plan survives contact with the enemy, even if you really like the enemy and don't want to have to run screaming from them...

 

----


Let's have a go at some Will's book titles because I really need to sort this.

Let's get the silly ones out of the way first, eh?

----

That guy who came to Fairyland but not to study magic

Will dates his boss and it's not entirely a terrible idea

Will gets chased by fairies a lot but it doesn't dull his enthusiasm because if Will likes something do not underestimate his level of commitment

Will's family is rightly suspicious of everything he does

All the bits of the comic you didn't get to see because it wasn't funny enough or didn't fit in 2-6 panels

Will's niggling feeling that he's not really straight turns out to be correct

I don't know how romance works, how did this happen?

Will is a squishy non-wizard and this is the absolute worst place to be that

Will likes Shakespeare and brings it up a lot and no-one is a jerk about it

Fairyland is about to erupt into civil war but we largely ignore that for several reasons

Louis is a constant jerk

Aurelia spends most of the time in this book either a: messing with Will, b: messing with Tyrian or c: drunk

........

Okay fine I'll do some real ones. These were written at midnight so in the daylight, I'm going to write my reactions. ...well it was in the daylight but it's almost midnight again but shut up.

An Odd Gap Year

A Foolish Gap Year

Love Potion Not Needed < I won't be using this because 'You don't need to drug me' is a terrible title for so very many reasons

The Fairy King and the Human Fool  < Certainly sounds like one of those many paranormal romance titles. Probably why I will avoid this one.

I'm Not Here for Magic  < kinda like this one

Fairy Roots  < My favourite so far! Probably going with this one.

A Gap Year's Dream  < Sitting on your sofa at midnight trying to make appropriate puns out of Shakespeare titles is hard, okay?

Humans Don't Belong in Fairyland  < appropriate but lazy?



Oh geez, I guess I need a blurb too... will work on that tomorrow... maybe I'll update the journal with it.


Don't even ask me about the cover. I need to brainstorm that too...

The manuscript itself is feeling almost done!  But not quite there yet... but almost.


Thanks for reading~

Sara led Lucinda down an odd corridor full of doors. That is, even more full of doors than corridors usually are. It was more door than wall, and it seemed to go on and on. Sara stopped abruptly.

“I thought I'd start you off with something simple,” she announced. “So today you're going to fight a dragon. Just remember not to get married,” she added sternly, opening the door.

Walking through the wood once more, Joshua hummed quietly to himself. His mind was on nothing but a sit down and a bit of supper. The wind was getting up and it howled through the trees causing quite a racket. He fancied that the rattling of the branches sounded like faint hoof beats. The sound persisted and became clearer
. . . he really was hearing hoof beats! He looked around to see where the noise was coming from. Over the rustling of the leaves, it was hard to tell. They seemed to be coming from everywhere. The light was fading fast; it was dusk, one of the times the Good Folk were said to pass through. The worries of this morning flooded back. Combined with the wind and the hoof beats he couldn't quite locate, the certainty formed itself into a knot in his stomach. He was going to have a run in with the fairies. A horse came galloping down the road, stopping and rearing up before him. He flung his arms over his head. The horse didn't strike him, but after the thud of it landing there was a click, and he removed an arm to see what it was. There was a gun pointed at his head.

“Hands in the air, rich boy,” the highwayman demanded. Joshua sagged with relief.

“Oh thank goodness!” he said, putting his hands up. “I'm just being robbed.”

Fairies didn't mess about when it came to naming things. They were the sort of people who called a spade a spade, although admittedly some of them called it a shovel. But when they named something, they named it well. The country was full of places called 'The Cave of Doom' or 'The Fountain of Death'. The Dark Forest was just such an aptly named place. Largely coniferous, the towering pine trees blocked out most of the sunlight. The persistent drizzle was adding to the murk. All kinds of nasty beasties lived in here, and like the majority of the populace, they were magical. Fairyland had a mana spring beneath it, which caused the evolution of all kinds of unusual flora and fauna, most of it dangerous. Fairies could handle such things easily as long as they kept their wits about them. The most dangerous thing a fairy could encounter was another fairy . . .

--------------

"Ambrosia. The Drink of the Gods. Thick, syrupy and vanilla flavoured, for some reason. It also contains enough calories to kill a mortal on the spot, so it's just as well that mortals are no longer mortals by the time they finish drinking it. Like Seralina, for example. She hadn't really meant to become a god. She hadn't taken the warning 'This will make of ye a god' seriously. It was her general policy not to trust any claim beyond 'It tastes all right, really'. She certainly didn't trust anything that sounded made-up or used words like 'dynamic'. Going round trusting words like 'dynamic' could get you into trouble. As it turned out, so could ignoring warning labels."

Also really hope no-one thinks I am big-headed with the poll, genuinely curious, due to some beta reading stuff and because romance books seem to be successful if everyone loves the heck out of one or both the protagonists...
So I've seen a couple of comics/meme things lately where people are mad at J.K Rowling for saying extra things about Harry Potter... has she said something crazy lately or was it just coincidence?? (I like HP, but I don't really pay much attention)

I'm in two minds about people being mad about it... from the point of view of being an author, I feel like I should be able to tell you whatever extra info I have, if I want to. But I can understand that some things might make people mad or sad... 

Have I ever said any extra info that made you guys mad? Or is there something that would annoy you?
(I give extra info a LOT...)

I definitely upset a reader once for giving answers to some questions they asked... You guys know Tyrian is polyamorous (You do, right?) but I got a negative reaction to that. People tend to automatically react like polyamorous = dirty cheater.  I'm never going to apologise for the polyamory; the way I look at it, if everyone in a polyamorous relationship is happy with it, then why be upset? And polyamorous people need representation too. How many fictional polyamorous couples can you even name?
I'm steadily making my way through my author to-do list... I'm finishing everything not Miss Prince related first, then I'll probably have to spend a few weeks up to my ears in Miss Prince rewrites...

The Rising of the Shield Hero is my new favourite thing.

The best way I can think to describe it is...
It's like Shining Force if everyone was a jerkface who won't let you save, de-poison or buy your stuff. 
'This is a local church for local people. There's nothing for you here.'

...and if you don't understand Shining Force references, I don't know how to help you (I mean the second thing was a League of Gentlemen ref but you know)
I had a jewel rider FC and everything, like, my proper first FC you guys. I mean she wasn't an FC so much as she was literally me with a jewel and a winged unicorn but you know.
