I currently work as an accountant (boring), but usually write in my off-time, alongside playing games. I've been writing since December 2008 with my very first story "Outbreak" (I was sixteen at the time, so it's not the greatest, but I've kept it up for posterity). Since then, I've been dabbling in different stories and participating in NaNoWriMo, winning the 2014 and 2015 competitions.

I'm an avid fan of the Metal Gear series, which inspired me to write in the first place. I also like the Half-Life video game series, XCOM, Oddworld, Dead Rising and most zombie related things and any form of media that makes you think, lets you engage and connect with the characters, or just generally not being dumbed down.

As I've said, I'm a huge zombie fan, and thus like to try and write zombie stories with a different kind of spin, twist or view of a post-apocolyptic world involving the dead.

Please review with constructive criticism, as it helps me see what I'm doing right and what needs improving. I value all types of criticism apart from nonsensical flaming ones, so thank you in advance if you do decide to review.

Happy reading!

Outbreak : On Sunday, September 13th 2009, an unusual series of events begin as early as 7:00 a.m. before escalating to a citywide pandemic of zombies in the city of New Barkham. Architect and average citizen Stanley Parfetti is thrown into the chaos to save his brother's girlfriend Isabel, a woman that he himself is fond of. Now in an effort to escape the city, Stanley slowly learns about the origin of the outbreak, who's involved, their motivations and the fatal consequences if he or anyone else fails to get out of the city as soon as possible.


ODD: One Last Defence : On February 28, 2015, the council of nations officially terminated the XCOM project and surrendered to the invading alien force. Twenty years later however, the project lives on. As the aliens commence a project of their own that may spell the end for humanity, the resistance movement taking up the name of XCOM is forced to emerge from the shadows and find a way to overthrow their new overlords. This particular telling of XCOM 2's campaign is based off of ChristopherOdd's Let's Play Youtube Series (Season 4 specifically).
