I'm honoured to be included as a comic book and graphic novels mentor, in the New Zealand Society of Authors' Mentoring Programme, alongside Dr Tim Bollinger, Robyn Kenealy, Ant Sang, Sarah Laing, Michel Mulipola, Matt Emery, and more. Full list here.


I'm very proud to have two poems in JAAM 32; Shorelines, "Outliers" and "The Piano", alongside excellent work from Emma Neale, Tim Jones, David Eggleton, Rata Gordon, Rachel Bush, and many other writers I admire. My gratitude to Sue Wootton for selecting my pieces and for giving "Outliers" a nod in her wonderful introduction.

Great full year

My thanks to Pikitia Press, who kindly asked me to review my great year in and out of comics. I'm very grateful they went to the trouble of sourcing complimentary pages from my comics to illustrate the post.
