'God's Pretty Game of Grotesque Puppets' is my first novel. Its five parts are called 'The Sun Always Sets In The West', 'Happy Tears in Love With A Cold', 'The Inauguration of Insanity', 'The Mother of Infinity' and 'The Devil Can't & God Won't'. In another Universe, after a teenage romance, Tonnan becomes a medical student at Hobbling University. Tonnan falls in love with a woman called Xinx, but destiny breaks the two apart. With the aid of a sexy blasphemer called Kleopatra he meets at a skatepark, Tonnan learns how to traverse the Multiverse. But will Tonnan ever see Xinx again?
'Indeed The Greed of Eden' is a poetically dreamy narrative of visual erotica featuring the characters of Xinx, Kleopatra and Tonnan from my first novel. Most of the images in this book were created using AI by Fotor and Canva.
I have written a lot of poetry and I was encouraged to pursue a career as a song-smith due to the fact that I was told that poetry is the opposite of money (a self-fulfilling prophecy in many classes).
As a writer, I'm interested in abstractions, experimentation and distilling emotion into rhyme & metered metaphysical verse.
