waves. I came here via Best Fantasy books where I've been knocking around for a while (so know some of you already - hi!) I'm a sf author, but, as well as that I'm a pretty voracious reader, much of which is sf. So, here seemed a good place to come and chill out. Recent reads I've loved include the Martian and Luna:New Moons. More meh about Ancillary Justice and The Three Body Problem. Writing-wise I write both space opera and standalones. The space opera is a big, sprawling trilogy, and pretty dark, and it's with a traditional publisher. Book 2 just came out, book 3 is due around the autumn. The audiobook of one will be out just as soon as I finish proofing it. It's long. I'm getting there... I self published Inish Carraig, a standalone last year, set in Belfast, which has done really well critically, so that's lovely. I have another NI based story - a dark fantasy, interwoven with fairies and the feel of the Glens of Antrim - coming out mext summer with a new publisher. I also have a load of short work out there, and more appearing this year. What I'm currently working on. So, so much. I'm finishing a YA sf - a sort of English Roswell, but creepier - with a view to getting myself a new agent (long story, my last one and I amicably parted ways), revising a high-end YA trilogy, wanting to start a new fantasy duology and resisting calls to write the sequel to Inish Carraig. That fight might be lost considering how many I'm getting about it. I like sharing experiences with other writers and look to support as best I can (although I don't go for kickstarters and the like - I just get asked too often for an impoverished author to cope with). I'm pretty sure I can't do links yet, nor am I big into touting. Plus with my name I'm not exactly hidden.... Looking forward to knowcking around.
