Author has written 19 stories for Batman, Superman, Justice League, Harry Potter, and Captain Marvel/Shazam.

Born and raised in London, England, I starting sharing some of my work while I was living in Grand Cayman (yes, the middle of nowhere).

After years of writing and never really showing my work to anyone, I've decided to make a change and put my work forward.

Fun times ahead?

I have a Facebook page, if anyone's interested:

What if the Dursleys were kind (HP & the Philosopher's Stone) reviews
Title says it all, really :) Alternate take on the Potterverse, with the Dursleys not being as mean as they have been known to be.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (alternate) reviews
An alternate take (prior to seeing the movie) prefaced by an alternate take on aspects of Man of Steel (so basically a sequel to the version of MoS I wrote but incorporating aspects of what might and will be in the new movie (some dialogue, for example)).

Superman Elseworlds: 'In the Name of' reviews
Prose piece - in a remote area of Pakistan...a baby comes down from the sky. Superman raised as a Muslim. Thoughts, opinions and criticisms welcome. (Update: thanks for reading. A few people have requested translations of some of the words used so I've inserted a glossary at the ends of chapters 2 and 3, and will insert ones in newer chapters when needed)

Mushroom Soup reviews
Turns out that mushroom soup isn't something often served in Gotham. Heck, mushroom anything is hardly ever on the menu. A non-Gothamite finds out why, and how it all ties in to an old 'joke'...

Dawn of Justice reviews
A little pre-emptive but I figured I'd try my hand at an approach for this (following on from the Man of Steel 'alternate approach')

Man of Steel - a slightly alternative approach to the movie reviews
Using 2013's 'Man of Steel' as the basic template, here's a slightly different approach. It's not as 'non-linear' as the movie (in the first installment) but please do let me know what you think (I know some will view it as a pointless exercise ;) ) Note: a lot of the movie's existing scenes are not changed and take place in and around these alternate scenes.

Human Test Subjects 2 (part 1) reviews
When the investigation of a series of murders resulted in the revelation of international manipulations, Clark Kent (Superman) and Bruce Wayne (Batman) try to find a way, or ways, to bring those responsible to justice...

Human Test Subjects reviews
A series of murders catches the attention of Clark Kent (investigative reporter) and The Batman (The World's Greatest Detective)

Ace o' Clubs and Old Gray-Eye reviews
The Ace o' Clubs is a popular hangout for the 'lower' citizens of Metropolis. This is a series of short tales involving one of its regulars. (Note: I've updated the rating to M in light of the recent chapter and some of the upcoming chapters)

An honour to serve
Their work is famous, their frustration...not so much. Sometimes it's hard to get chosen, but when they do they give it their all. This is a tale of one of the most relied upon allies of the Bat-family...

Distant 'family' reviews
There are an 'elite' few who are on the outside looking in. They are privy to a secret but not a party to it. Working behind the scenes, this collective has an understanding: help when you can but keep it quiet and stay the heck out of the way. You've probably wondered about them, even if just in passing.

Superman: Year One reviews
(Incomplete) Superman script. Initially written almost a decade ago, pre52 readers should recognise aspects of Byrne, Loeb, Dixon et al. In the first version I did, it kicked off in Paris with the Smallville 'flashbacks' coming later but suggestions were made to turn it around...so I did. Thoughts, opinions and criticisms welcome.

Batman: Year One
(Incomplete) script for a year one movie. I wrote this almost a decade ago and fans of the pre52-verse will, no doubt, recognise the references made. I welcome your thoughts, opinions and criticisms

Power, Superman and Iran' an article by Clark Kent reviews
After the recent increase in sanctions against Iran, Superman is invited to help out on an experiment. The invitation and the results of the experiment result in 'unrest'. It's a non-geo-politic attempt by the Man of Steel to help move Iran forward, but it could hold serious consequences further down the line...

Justice League: Clash (SupermanCaptain Marvel) (alternate approach) reviews
I generally don't like heroes going up against each other, especially not without something major putting them at odds and, because of that, the 'clash' between Superman and Captain Marvel just...didn't work for me. So here's an alternate take on how things could have happened in that episode. Note: there is a (deliberate) lack of descriptive narrative in this piece.

Shoring up the walls of Metropolis
Another 'extract from Clark Kent's blog'. Currently, this is a 'world building' exercise before the real fun begins.

Shallow Graves an extract from Clark Kent's blog reviews
When Clark Kent moved to Metropolis he lived in Suicide Slum. He soon uncovered something. Something unpleasant. Something he was ordered by the Court not to talk or write about. The gagging order is now lifted and he has posted about the events in his blog.

Lincoln March's encounter with Batman alternate
This is an alternate take on how the Court of Owls initial arc could have ended, based on what had occurred in the preceding issues 1-10 and incorporating aspects of what did happen in issue 11.
