“There is nothing to writing.
All you have to do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.”
– Earnest Hemingway

I write novels, short stories and poetry, mainly literary, sometimes sci-fi. I think the industry classes me as an ’emerging writer’, which is as uncomfortable as it sounds. Then again, like Hemingway, I’m not sure good writing is ever exactly comfortable.

As of February 2017, I am also represented by Sandra Sawicka at Marjacq. I’ve got my own author page and everything!
