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.

I’m on something of a Short Sharp Shocks! bender at the moment. I’m devouring these tales and this short story is yet another superb entry in the growing list of great titles. This story had me from the very first… Read More ›
I went into this short book based on the title, the cover (it’s a kick-ass pentagram!!!), and the fact it was another tale in the Short Sharp Shocks! collection. Imagine my delight when I found out the main character was… Read More ›
Sinister greetings!! This Thursday, August 22nd sees the release of my collection of 10 short stories, The Mind’s Plague and Other Bites of Brutality. These stories explore love, happiness, and lots of mushy romance. Just kidding, they are pretty much… Read More ›
When I see a book described as a vampire story, I immediately think Anne Rice or Twilight and am slightly dubious at the thought of reading it. Which is silly really because, when I think about it, I enjoyed the… Read More ›
