My self-summary

Thanks for taking a look at my profile. I have no idea how this comes across but here goes anyway:

Writing - I do it for a living. I've got two books out so far and more should be finished soon(ish). I tend to lean towards more gothic, darkly humorous stuff. It can be a lot of fun and it was a great feeling seeing my books on the shelves of Waterstones for the first time. Also, I've just started working in digital marketing too. I love social media/article writing/etc. so it seems daft not to.

Learning stuff - I've ended up with two masters degrees in Egyptology and Global Politics. They were interesting but I think I need a break from academia for a bit. I'm currently thinking about what to do next: may be a Masters in Creative Writing, psychology, or possibly a graduate Law course, we'll see.

Teaching - I travel around the country teaching creative writing in schools. It's great fun and pretty surreal, but I get to talk about zombie islands, spaceship cannibalism and rampaging hydras for a living so I've no complaints. Also, I've lived in Greece and Spain where I taught TEFL so Guardian GSM lifestyle requirements ticked there.

Eating out - I love going to restaurants and I pop down to the local sushi place for lunch a couple times a week. I have a "usual" there now and I'm a bit proud of that.

Music - Currently listening to a lot of Wolf Parade, Nick Cave, The Deep Dark Woods and Springsteen. I enjoy gigs too although most of the bands I like don't tend to play in the UK that much.

Films and TV - I love comedies and at the moment Archer, Family Guy and South Park are my favourite TV series. In terms of films, I watch all sorts. The Darjeeling Ltd is probably my favourite and I enjoy a good Will Ferrell comedy too. Supernatural ones freak me out although I do find myself fascinated by them.

Butterfly houses - absolutely love them and I want one in my garden, I need a garden first though.

What I’m doing with my life
writing, signing, plotting, and visiting schools.
I’m really good at
see above. And procrastinating.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm tall, I wear glasses, and I have a beard.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Authors - Huge Pratchett fan, plus Clarke, Murakami, Maugham, are authors I like that immediately spring to mind. I enjoy lots of others too and read a great deal; I don't have a particular genre I stick to. Currently enjoying CJ Sansom's Dark Fire, Herbert's Dune (again), and rereading Thud! by Pratchett (I usually read Pratchett at least once a month).

Movies - Big Wes Anderson fan - The Darjeeling Ltd is my fav - plus it made me want to wear Marc Jacobs suits. Also, I saw Tell No One recently and loved it.

TV- Arrested Development, Family Guy, the Sopranos, Firefly, Jeeves and Wooster, South Park, Fresh Meat, Peep Show, Archer, Spaced, West Wing, Californication, Community, and Bored to Death.

Music - Bruce Springsteen, Shearwater, Wolf Parade, Magnetic Fields, Sunset Rubdown, The Decemberists, Blitzen Trapper, The Deep Dark Woods, and Okkervil River

Food - I'll eat anything. Addicted to ricotta stuffed peppers at the moment. This will change.

Holidays - I'm not a fan of crowds so I much prefer holidays to remote places rather than city breaks.
The six things I could never do without
Decent restaurants
Cynical humour
On a typical Friday night I am
Out with friends in a pub/bar or staying in watching a film or TV series.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm prepared to admit I watched the new Girl with the Dragon Tattoo with my mum. It was weird (the situation not the film - well the film was a bit weird too but mainly the situation).
