Siôn Smith (pronounced Sean as in Connery) is a short story writer whose work leans heavily on something he calls Dirty Surrealism. He dislikes writing in the third person so much, I'm not going to do it anymore. I write longhand with a Waterman because the alternative means staring at a screen. I was once described as 'Byronesque' which may be the nicest thing anybody ever said about me.

I have a thing for books, rock, old monster movies and the rain. I'm also partial to saving bears, airports and coffee. I run a minimalist mindset and own just twelve things because you should never own so much that you can't leave town with your world in the car. 

One of those things is a Welsh Border Collie crossed with the biggest damn Poodle I ever saw. His name is Hector. I didn't intend for it to happen, but he has become my world.
