Hi! I’m Malcolm F. Cross.

I write fiction, and, well. This is where you can find some information about that.

If you would like to know more about something I’ve written, the list of Books, publications and stories is a good place to start.

I have a Patreon, which I mostly utilize as an ad-hoc monthly blog to keep fans and interested people appraised of what’s going on in my career and life. (The Blogfeed here is largely mirrored posts from my Patreon, but I do post some other stuff on here once in a long while.) The support of my Patreon patrons is what allows me to self publish and keep doing what I do, and I am immensely thankful to them.

I enjoy coming up with gently absurd boilerplate biographies for myself, such as:

Malcolm F. Cross, otherwise known by his internet handle ‘foozzzball’, lives in London (or at least as near as he can manage, housing permitting) and enjoys the personal space and privacy that the city is known for. When not misdirecting tourists to nonexistent landmarks and standing on the wrong side of escalators, Malcolm enjoys writing, struggling with refreshing his website, chasing stray orange cats to see if they’re actually an urban fox, using black pens, adding to his to-be-read book pile, and occasionally dancing with the curtains shut so he can be absolutely certain nobody‚Äôs watching.

Malcolm is never sure what information to include in boilerplate biographies, so tends to dedicate the middle section to something vaguely related to the work at hand. Given that this is a website, he can shamedly admit that he made his first website on Geocities many years ago, and misses putting <angle tags> around anything that vaguely looks like it could be html. </angle tags>
