Interview with Tafad Tan

An interview I did today with three Cardiff creatives (Jason Philips - musician and producer, Alrick "Ninjah" Wilson - musician and occasional drag queen, and Max Lewy - poet), on such topics as Beijing, burlesque, decluttering, writing, being transgender, and boasting a little about famous relatives.

“A strength badly exerted” – Rousseau, Radicalism, and Repression in the Works of P. B. Shelley

Something a little unusual for this blog - This is an academic article I wrote back in late 2013, revised in 2015, then forgot about after the e-journal it was intended for vanished off the face of the interwebs never to resurface. Since I absolutely cannot be bothered with the rigmarole of trying to find... Continue Reading →

Pretty Gems and Paranoid Androids

My writing has really taken a back seat to my burlesque for over a year now, since my last Gothic dabbling in the world of fanfic. However, being a big fan of "Steven Universe", I've been toying with the idea of doing some sort of crossover fiction with the Crystal Gems for some time now,... Continue Reading →

While one would often prefer to be generous when... Continue Reading →

Recently, I was Googling about to see if I could find any new reviews on Wolves of Dacia, obviously searching with... Continue Reading →

Lucille and the Healers

Wolves of Dacia (First time in paperback)

2018 has got off to an eventful start - lots of requests for Tarot readings, new fanfiction published, Burlesque dance classes started, but best of all, my long-awaited first ever paperback novel has finally hit the shelves (or Amazon, at any rate) ... Wolves of Dacia is my second foray into historical Gothic fiction (after... Continue Reading →
