Ian Gough is a UK-based author who writes a mixture of fantasy, comedy, horror or a combination of the three. He took up writing novels and short stories back in 2016 and created the fantasy continent of The Core Lands.

After letting his fingers trip awkwardly across his laptop keyboard, his first full novel Lotan the Librarian was born later that year. Since then he’s had both fantasy and horror stories published and with lots of ideas struggling to break free, plans to release more into the wild in 2021 and beyond.

Ian is also the creator and co-host of the #7DayTale hashtag game on Twitter. The game runs on the first Monday of every month and encourages writers to create and share new tales by posting a story in 7 days using just 7 tweets, one per day.

When not in his writing dungeon hunched over a keyboard, Ian likes to draw (with mixed results), bakes on occasion, is an avid boxset and film lover, enjoys a spot of gaming, and is also a butler to his two cats.
