Friday, 19 June 2015 Coming Up

The latest edition of DarkFuse’s anthology series has just been released in Kindle and contains 6 dark fiction tales, including my own contribution Taking it All Away.  As well as the e-book, there’s also a pretty nifty looking limited edition hardcover available for preorder.

It’s a grim tale (aren’t they all?) about grief, loss, and reparation, and I hope readers will take kindly to it.

I'm a huge fan of the work DarkFuse do, so it’s a real pleasure to be part of this.  A massive thanks to Shane for picking this one up. 

Check it out here.


Monday, 10 November 2014 The Sound of Horror

Two posts in less than a week?  Crazy, I know.

It’s truly with delight, and any number of other superlatives, that I point you in the direction of Pseudopod’s latest Flash on the Borderlands episode.  Therein lies a little tale of grief and loss entitled The Beachcomber by some strange fellow called Bonehill.

Huge, huge thanks to Shawn for picking this one up, to John Michnya for bringing the story to such vivid life with his fine narration, to Alasdair for the intro, and anyone else along the way who nudged this little tale to its current form.

Give it a listen here.

Thursday, 6 November 2014 Honored Indeed


Absolutely delighted to say that my story Vent made Ellen Datlow’s list of Honorable Mentions for the year. Vent took a while to find a home, but when it did it found a great one in Horror without Victims, and it’s safe to say I’m thrilled it’s found a place on Ellen’s list too.

Friday, 25 April 2014 Another Bite

Head on over to the always wonderful Horror d'oeuvres for my slice of flash fiction Enabled.  It's great to be featured by Dark Fuse again, so huge thanks to Shane for picking this one up.

Thursday, 13 March 2014 Make a Connection

My story Disconnect is now live at This is Horror as part of their Flash Fear feature.  Thanks to Michael Wilson for giving this downbeat tale a good home and to Nick Gucker for the great illustration.

Give it a thumbs up (or down) here.




Tuesday, 3 December 2013 Door No 3

December marks the annual TTA press Advent Calendar.  A month packed with the festive cheer of a story a day right up until the big day.  It's all set to be a great line up as usual, so check it out for some Christmas chills and thrills.
If you take a peek behind door number 3 you’ll find Charlie’s Stones.

Happy Christmas, Charlie.

Friday, 8 November 2013 Terrifying Whispers

Whispers of the Sea is now live over at Tales to Terrify. As always, it’s a great show and is a real pleasure to be involved with.

Huge thanks to everyone at T T T for having me along for the ride and a special thanks to Nikolle Doolin for an absolutely fantastic reading.
