Reviews of My Work

Fishing for Worlds by Stuart Sharp ends this anthology and, boy, does it end on a high note. This ranks up there with my favourites. I really, really/i> liked the concept. Let me just say that the title is not a typo. Whilst you’re looking for Deliverance (and any other stories that strike your fancy), look for this too. I promise you, you won’t be disappointed. It’s very rare that vague-like settings work for me, but this worked very nicely indeed. I loved the tone of this, the way it echoed how I imagine Timothy must be and sound. The way it leaves open questions and new paths… Yes, liked this. Liked this quite a bit.”

“In “Last Orders,” Stuart Sharp tells the story of humanity’s last few moments on Earth. You might think that’s a morbid little tale, and you’d be right, but it’s also a fun romp of a story. Sharp makes the seemingly endless dialogue between a barkeeper and his last customer flow smoothly, and at the same time that you want to tap them on the shoulder and point out that there are only a few minutes left, you’re revelling in the familiar drama of day-to-day life. “Last Orders” is distinctly reminiscent of the start to Douglas AdamsHitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, but that resemblance does it more good than harm.”



Ghostwriting/Editing

I have ghost written numerous novels, covering everything from Young Adult fantasy, to sci-fi rom-com, humorous cyber-punk, twisted space opera and delicious fairy tales. Those portions of my work that I am allowed to talk about include contributions to the 'What Really Happened' collection of humorous historical fiction pieces by K. Lenart, and work on several sci-fi novels with Arran Gimba.

My Novels

My own novels cover two genres. Those for DDP are urban fantasy, and quite dark, written at a point when I didn't think it was acceptable to make jokes when writing. With my most recent one, thankfully, I have learned better.
