I'm a Perth-born writer and former academic returning to writerly roots by dusting off old work and writing new material. Coradel Press is a brand of Lost Isle Media, my media company, through which I print and promote my work. You can check out my other brands at lostislemedia.com
My early juvenile work was Tolkein-esque fantasy, notably a short story about kids lost in an underground world, a novella revisiting the same setting, and some miscellaneous writings that culminated in a near-finished comic fantasy novel called The Merry Grim.
From there I took a more surrealist, literary and philosophical bent with my prose poetry, short stories and novels. I've collected my early prose writing in Pretty Dead Things and Ugly Dead Things (juvenilia and weaker work).
My first completed novel was The Third Customer, a surreal urban fantasy set in a small town, Runacres Waring, in an undefined future. It follows an ensemble cast around the town's political conspiracy as well as an emerging supernatural mystery.
My collection of fantasy stories Rapanoikhi and Other Tales is probably my most accessible work. Some of the tales in Rapanoikhi... overlap with the worldbuilding in my tabletop roleplaying game Io, but are not explicitly in the same universe.
My literary fantasy, The Pulkin Dresser, is an at turns whimisical philosophical work about a tailor who plans a career from the medieval-style Outer District into the service of Lady Pulkin, the matriarch who rules within the Inner District and its monolithic Keep. However, he discovers that those within the Keep have their own intrigues, some of which have been in play for generations ...
At present I'm editing the above stories for publication, reviewing some older unpublished academic work, and quietly ruminating on some more short stories in the vein of Rapanoikhi as part of the world-building around Io.
