Well where do I start?
That intro makes it sound like I’m up to sooo much fun stuff and have so many interesting facts to share about myself, but it’s all pretty boring really.
I write stories where scary stuff happens, I blog about nonsense, I am an amateur serial killer in the making, and I love snuggling up with my cute little kittens in front of a warm fire (only one of those statements is false).
I enjoy reading, which is a good thing if you want to write, as you need to know how to do it properly! King, Kafka, Palahniuk, Barker, Lovecraft, Jackie Collins; all the greats.
Films, yes I like them. Food, I enjoy eating it. Drums, I love banging them.
I hope to take over the world one day and make everyone listen to ear-shattering grindcore at all times, to only complain that my music is becoming too mainstream.
And that’s it really. Oh yeah, I also have a GSOH, although you’d probably doubt that if you ever met me.

This was one bleak story full of sadness, hopelessness, and lashings of blood; some fresh, some congealed and blackened. So of course I enjoyed it immensely! I’m a big fan of Rich Hawkins. His Plague Trilogy was superb; a post-apocalyptic… Read More ›
When a couple travel to a deserted cabin in the dense woodland, you kind of know what’s going to go down there. Supernatural monsters from the trees perhaps? An escaped murderer? A ghost of the former owner? Local rednecks who… Read More ›
I’ve never been to the Appalachians but know a little from movies and TV, so even though I had no first-hand experience of the place, I was familiar with the general vibe. I’ve heard it’s picturesque and beautiful, but with… Read More ›
I went into this short story with high expectations. I’m a big fan of Calvin Demmer’s work, this dude can make flash fictions feel like novellas, if you know what I mean. This story flew past, possibly a little too… Read More ›
I’m a big fan of Keith Anthony Baird’s work. His two previous novels, The Jesus Man and Nexilexicon were thoroughly enjoyable, and pretty dark. So now he’s gone and released a collection of short stories. So the question is, can… Read More ›
