The projects I manage outside of my working hours (never inside them, I assure you). There’s Professional Moron, which is a satire and culture blog I’ve run since 2012, and Moonshake Books for highly detailed book reviews. I also write short stories and novels, which I’ll shortly be looking to try and get published.
I started this blog in July 2016 to develop on my book reviews from Professional Moron. These allow me to go into incredible detail about my favourite novels (fiction and non-fiction). I'm hoping the blog will introduce people around the world to new books, but I also simply enjoy writing about them in greater detail.
I began blogging in early 2012 and have amassed over 1,600 posts on this surreal humour site. Typically I write satirically, developing on my fondness for absurdity (based on reading too many existential novels), but I also cover culture with books, films, music, and video games. It's all in good fun.
I've been working on a debut novel for the last few years. It's 81,000 words and develops on themes from Jean-Paul Sartre's Roads to Freedom trilogy from the 1940s. A character study, it follows a man as he copes with an unusual phobia which plays havoc with his life. I'm aiming to have this finished by January 2018 and will be contacting literary agents from there.
I've written several short stories, most notably the satirical science-fiction effort Posthoumous. It's about a dystopian world where there isn't any houmous left. I've also written a Kafkaesque story about life from the perspective of a pack of cigarettes - it's called The Cigarettes. As of 2018, I'll be starting work on a new novel I've tentatively titled The Factory Owner.
