A tree hugger goes Faktum


About paper, plastic, and re-purposing Ikea kitchens... I would never call myself a 'tree hugger' (and I have a PS3, PS4, and too many airmiles to prove that) but even I think sometimes it pays to be smart... either for the environment, or just for the money.

Aspiring Artist


Over the years I've been painting a few murals on the walls of the bedrooms of the kids.

Me and my youngest daughter (who is already more of an artist than I will ever be) set out to create something new...


The old website is gone, but some materials may be useful (if only to me 😂, so I added a little section and will move some pages / files in there. It's not complete so more stuff is coming...

Strictly for nerds, obviously. Link: http://www.ninelizards.com/archive

The next installment of Dapper is coming up...

Dapper is an international APA (Amateur Press Association), written by and for SF & Fantasy fans. You can still join!

Obviously my poor attempt at a cover is a photoshop of the original DC comic The Flash number 22... all rights reserved etc. etc.

"THEY CALL HER THE SPACE WITCH. But not to her face. Jennifer knows the universal laws of conserving energy and diminishing returns also apply to space (and love and aliens). But that is not going to stop Cadet Healer Third Class Parsons bringing her own kind magic to space..."

Inverarity - Alexandra Quick


There is a lot of bad Fan Fiction out there. Alexandra Quick, though, isn't one of those. It is, in fact, very, very good.

Did I mention the Alexandra Quick stories are very good?
