About me
 

I started my creative endeavors with Radio Retrofuture on Youtube, where I discuss Steampunk and retrofuturist fiction. For the last couple of years, I have been working on a series of Steampunk books and comics in collaboration with various illustrators called The Association of Ishtar. 

In February/March 2023 I intended to launch the Kickstarter for my second book, Bound for the Styx.

"I bought the kindle version and started reading it, and now I'm hooked. Bonsart has created a fascinating new world in which anything can happen... But you can tell that there is a master grand plan."

- Sean March, author of Little Wade and Watchtower

"A truly delicious, swirling gothic steampunk story in a world that feels so three-dimensional that you feel like you could walk through the nearest door and step into it."
-George Penney, Bohemiana  podcast, author of OverLondon
