I am a writer and blogger using three strands: sf and fantasy fiction, how-to music publications, and collections of legends and myths.
For an SF and dark fantasy author my fiction explores the interplay between dreams, memory, imagination and self-delusion. I'm attempting to make a body of work that explores our place in the world, its roots, fraud and myths. Influences include: (Fantasy) Philip K. Dick, William Gibson, Neil Gaimon, Harlan Ellison, H. P. Lovecraft, Ray Bradbury; (movies) Luc Bresson, Terry Gilliam, Stanley Kubrick, Ridley Scott, Andy and Lana Wachowski, Joss Whedon; (Artists): Frank Frazetta, Jeffrey Catherine Jones, Barry Moser, Gustave Dore, Picasso, Leonardo Da Vinci, William Blake, Gerhard Richter, Bernie Wrighton, Barry Windsor Smith, Virgil Finlay.
As a writer/creator of how-to music books I've made over 25 titles, including 'Beginner’s Guide to Reading Music', Guitar Chords, Piano Chords, Songwriter’s Rhyming Dictionary, Play the Guitar Made Easy. Other books include Advanced Guitar Chords, Advanced Piano Chords, Chords for Kids, 'How to Play the Electric Guitar', ' 'Reading Music Made Easy', ' 'Scales and Modes' and 'Play Flamenco'. Published EP Jakesongs on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, LastFM, etc and on CDBaby.
Have also edited some books in mythology, such as Myths and Legends, Celtic Myths and Native American Myths and Legends.
