…Whether I was a better writer when I was fifteen.

Syer Roth Chapter 1

So begins Syer Roth: Fire Empress, the science-fantasy novel I wrote as a teenager. I found it in the spare room this morning – all 960 pages of it.  The internet didn’t exist in those days so it’s wholly in hard copy. I’ve considered typing it up and editing it, but it wouldn’t be suitable for publication. It’s a Mary-Sue fest and (probably) too gory for Young Adults.
