A web designer and programmer by day, I've had a few short stories published in various places since 2007 and have been a member of Redwell Writers (Norwich UK) since 2006.

After a recommendation to use Wattpad by SimonKJones I serialised a couple of novels here to see how it went. The first one was Splinters, a science fiction story based on the Earth and Moon. The second was a fantasy based in my home city of Norwich (UK), which made the research easier! Both stories are now 'complete', though the versions here are not the final ones that made it to print, which I achieved in August 2020. Please note that only the first few chapters of Time Portals of Norwich are now available here on Wattpad. To buy a paperback or download the ebook version please see my publishing website: www.vivadjinn.com
I am now working on the sequel to Time Portals of Norwich, which will be called Time's Revenge.
I've also added a number of short stories. Wisdom of the Ancients, my submission for Wattpad and NationalGeographic's #PlanetOrPlastic competition reached the final 10 submissions in early 2019 but, since then, has hit the number 1 spot in Wattpad's Science Fiction category. Shrinkage was submitted to another competition and received an 'honourable mention'. Sunset was submitted for the Science Fiction's January 2020 short story challenge and won!
