As a copywriter and search engine marketer I have worked on numerous web projects since 1996 (yes, that long). This site is for my fictional works. You can read my topical pieces on my Worldview Medium blog (from climate change to politics to security), my restaurant and hospitality pieces on my Restaurant Blue Book site, or my self-help and personal development work on my Finding Authenticity site. You can also sign up to my mailing list in the side-bar or below (Ed’s Journal) where I’ll post very occasional bonus tidbits.
I look forward to hearing from you via the form or in the comments.
A Little History
Many (many) years ago, I discovered role-playing and Dungeons and Dragons in one of the after school clubs. It revealed a universe that allowed me to flex my storytelling muscles and enjoy a mixture of fantasy and sci-fi and feed the escapist dreamer inside.
Over time, I played (and story-led*) many systems including Call of Cthulhu*, Shadowrun, Dungeons & Dragons*, Middle Earth, In Nomine*, Bushido, Chivalry & Sorcery, Chill, Warhammer, Warhammer 40k, Gammaworld, Hawkmoon, Stormbringer, Immortals*, Marvel Super Heroes, Paranoia, RuneQuest, Vampire: The Masquerade*, and a couple of my own devising (Medieval* and Parody*).
I explored live-action role-playing – eventually running my own club and developing my own LARP systems (Fools Gold and Dream Conquest) – and usually found myself in script-writing or game-master duty, writing over 500 individual live adventures over the period, many linked into the world events of the fantasy land we created. I also volunteered for Curious Pastimes and Lorien Trust at their main LARP events (special effects at the Ritual Circle), and did a little script work, cameos and improv for Curious Pastimes. I was also the South East’s Editor (UK) for the LARP magazine The Adventurer.
The rest, as they say, is history.
