Hi everyone!

If you’ve ever had the pleasure of being bored to bits by me blabbing about my work, you might know I’ve been working on a all-age fantasy novel. It’s one of those stories I really really want to tell, but it’s too specific and productionally intense for cinema or TV so it has to be a book. And unfortunately I’ve been so busy getting my actual career as a screenwriter on the rails that books are just not going to happen anytime soon.

Luckily, that doesn’t stop me from writing short stories set in the novel’s universe.

And you know the cool thing about shorts?

I can share them with all you magnificent people.

So starting next week, this site will be home to a six-part short story told in two installments of three weeks. It’s set in the fantastic Caravan universe – a universe featuring a magical desert and a group of adventurers traversing it. All talented heroes, with one exception: The fearful insurance agent Alice, who wishes she had just stayed at home…
