Happy Christmas, Charlie.

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.

Friday, 6 September 2013 Terrified Yet?

The good folks over at Tales to Terrify have a bumper crop of fine flash stories today.  Some fellow by the name of Bonehill joins the illustrious company of Joe R. Lansdale, P.D. Cacek and a host of others in the podosphere.

So while you’re listening to great tales by great writers, check out my story too.

In the Garden is a brief uplifting tale which I hope you’ll enjoy.  Thanks to Antoinette Bergin for a great reading.

Check it out here.

Thursday, 22 August 2013 Review

There’s an excellent review of Horror without Victims here.

Pleased to see some nice words for Vent, but even better to see the collection as a whole comes highly recommended.  In the words of the reviewer: ‘a sublime anthology.’

Friday, 3 May 2013 Beachcombing

The Beachcomber is now live over at Horror D'oeuvres.  It's a subscription only site, but is free to members of the Dark Fuse Book Club.  And if you're at all interested in dark fiction, then you really should be a member.

Hope you enjoy this little tale of loss.

Monday, 29 April 2013 Fused

Absolutely delighted to say that my story ‘The Beachcomber’ will feature as part of Dark Fuse's new flash fiction venture Horror D’oeuvres. For my money, Dark Fuse is one of the best genre publishers around right now and it's a real honour to be involved with them.

It marks my first pro-rate sale in a while and comes at a time when I’ve been questioning this whole writing thing, so it’s both a thrill and a real boost.

The Beachcomber came more or less fully formed in the space of a couple of hours one afternoon. Some minor edits and a little spit and polish later and it was done.

Is there a lesson here about trusting my instincts a little more? Maybe, maybe not.

More details as and when, but in the meantime, huge thanks to Shane Staley at Dark Fuse for picking this one up.
