Ever since being a child I was fascinated by the phantasmagorical and strange. Blessed with the type of mind that squirrels away peculiar facts, I supposed it was only natural these should become a central feature in my novels.

As I got older I often forgot where I found these oddities in the first place. Odds and Sods: A cabinet of Curiosities was born as an on-line notepad and sort of grew from there. Now it showcases the curious stuff I come across when researching my novels. I also get a tremendous kick from sharing it with friends.
