I am a small hermit living in London. My webcomic is Penny Blackfeather which has been running for five years. I have also worked on a few comic anthologies including Tempolush Tales of the Tanoox and Rosie and Jacinda. When not making comics I am throwing VFX rocks at movies, playing D&D or staring aimlessly out of a window thinking about unicorns or crumpets.

Down by the riverside there is a quaint little teahouse run by our heroine, Geraldine, who’s only desire is to spread her love of the golden beverage – But what’s going to happen to her business when a new coffee house springs up right next door?! And what is the meaning of Cafe Suada? Guess you’d better read and find out, huh?”
