Toby Wallis is an award winning writer with short fiction published in a number of journals, both in print and online. He is at work on a novel.
Inspired by writers such as Tom Drury, Alison Moore, Jeffrey Eugenides and Haruki Murakami, his writing is introspective and quietly spoken, asking questions but leaving answers well alone. Toby is frequently to be found in the bookshops of Cambridge where he routinely buys slightly more books than he ought to.
His writing methods include coming up with cool sounding titles and then attempting to reverse engineer the story that goes with them, and writing down things that really happened to him as though it were fiction. Approximately 20% of all his fiction is true. Common themes that reappear throughout his writing include loneliness, coffee and not knowing where to stand.
He lives in Suffolk, UK and when not writing or reading he is most likely to be found cooking, walking or playing videogames.
