5 Questions (1).jpg

They will find my newest book That Shattered which is the latest story in my webcomic series Eimurian Tales. The Shattered is a dark fantasy coming of age story about Malwynn, a tormented young man who befriends a mysterious creature he finds in the woods. The fledgling companions are beset by great danger when the villagers of Malwynn’s hamlet discover of the strange visitors existence. As well as The Shattered you will find a collection of limited edition art prints!

What do you love about creating comics?

I love bringing my stories and characters to life on the page. I also love seeing people enjoy those stories and characters!

What part of creating comics do you find the most challenging?


What do you love about being at a comic con?

Behind the table I love chatting with people about my work, t's a double bonus if they're into it too. In front of the table though; I love meeting new artist, finding new comics to read and getting to see friends that I see only a handful of times a year.

What comic - other than your own - would you recommend people read?

I have a few! From the British indie scene I would recommend The Legend of La Mariposa by James Lawrence, Drugs and Wires by CryoClaire and Io Black and Skal by Jennie Gyllblad.
