He self-published his first novel, Limbo, in April 2012 and his second, Purging Paradise, in February 2013. He grew up watching films and TV shows from various genres and developed a visual approach to storytelling. He is inspired by the eerie and grounded tales of H.P. Lovecraft, H.G. Wells. But mainly admires the visually stunning movies of John Carpenter, Ridley Scott, James Cameron, George A. Romero and many others who share the same passion for storytelling in the sci-fi and horror genre. He enjoys having a creative imagination which he has nurtured since childhood and letting his mind wander into fun, horrifying and sometimes surreal possibilities for his work.
She used to be a nurse, caring for the sick and wounded. But now, she is a prisoner of her own misery – trapped by poverty, despair and alcoholism. Her life is a nightmare, and she has no control over anything. Her body is tormented by gout, her mind by self-loathing.

As winter approaches, a mysterious rot begins to spread in her house, infecting everything and everyone it touches. It is a deadly force that consumes both flesh and soul, leaving behind only decay and madness.
Will she be able to escape the rot, or will she succumb to its horrors?
