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.

The hype around this book and the plethora of positive reviews it already has was not lost on me. My paperback copy had been sitting on the shelf for a few months before I took the creepy trip to Kill… Read More ›
Harlan Ellison is an author I’d heard of, but knew nothing about. I bought this book many months ago and by the time I came to read it, had forgotten why I’d bought in the first place. But past-me has… Read More ›
Hello there. To those of you who’ve semi-followed me on this blog for a bit, you’re maybe aware that in January I released my debut novella, An Army of Skin. The handful of reviews I’ve had have been extremely humbling… Read More ›
This book is going to stay with me for a while. Try as I may, I don’t think I’ll ever work it out. But am I really supposed to? This review teeters on spoilery, but knowing a little about the… Read More ›
If you weren’t scared of the woods after reading Steve Stred’s excellent The Girl Who Hid in the Trees, then there’s no doubt you will be after reading The Stranger. Whereas in his previous novella the trees were home to… Read More ›
