Hi there. I’m Otto.
I write things down. It’s cheeper than therapy and carries the vague chance of becoming a career one day. My books range from lighthearted adventure novels in the vein of the Uncharted games to dark, bloody thrillers set in the ruins of post-apocalyptic America, to sci-fi adventures.
The characters in my books are normal people. That is: They come in a range ethnicities, genders, and sexualities, and I do my best to represent them all as fully developed humans. They also have a tendency to be grappling with psychological issues, complex relationships, and dark backgrounds. Sympathies if any of this is upsetting, but the more people I meet the more I’m convinced that we’re all a little broken and the best way of putting ourselves back together is by sharing and connecting with each other, even if it’s through fiction.
My passion lies in the stories people tell. Not just the tales that we write down in novels, but in the little fictions which we spin for ourselves each day to try and make sense of life.
So dive in and explore what I’ve got on offer. You can find samples of my books, links to buy those books on Amazon, and the occasional blog post in which I ramble about life.
