I’m an author and freelance writer, specialising in writing about history and imaginary worlds. I live in Leeds with my partner and a curious cat named Spooky.

Before writing full time, I worked as a teacher, academic, data analyst, project manager and, in my darkest hour, a call centre employee. I’ve studied medieval history, management and social research. You can call it broad experience or a short attention span – either way, variety suits me.

I indulge in all the best hobbies. Comics, wargames, board games, roleplay games (both live action and tabletop), and of course reading genre fiction. I like to think that it fuels my creativity. Really, it’s all just a big distraction, but isn’t that what life’s all about?

I’m on twitter @gibbondemon and on Mastodon also as @gibbondemon .
