Convention Season part 1

I’ll be at the Nineworlds Geekfest this year (8-10th August).

I’ll be on one panel, I’ll do one reading and I’ll be heading one workshop.


I’ll be running a workshop on mental illness portrayal in fiction. This is a topic I feel strongly about and I have a lot to say. Be good to see you there.

Sunday, 10th August
