Seeking to bring the uniqueness of Japanese media to a Western audience

At an early age my mind was awash with fantastical stories, my head constantly in the clouds that lead to constant reprimands at school. I have lived an interesting life from having a troubled youth, before joining the British army. When I left I became a father, a role that set me on a new path.

From working as a child councillor, being a gardener, to becoming an actor and then finally an author. The point of me telling you this is to explain the unique view I have on life, that which I put into my stories and characters, aiding in giving them realistic dialogue and situations, something I feel is needed in modern media.

My current book series is called 'The Shifting', taking inspiration from Japanese media this Light Novel Fantasy series will continue to around 10 books in total. After which my new series of books will commence, I will give you a sneak peek with the title 'Genocidal Love'.

My books, The Shifting, Vol 1 and Vol 2, are only available on Amazon as paperback and e-book, I sincerely hope if you find the time to read them that you enjoy it. My aim is to bring a smile to your face and provide some escapism, if those two criteria are met, then I am fulfilled.
