I've written some real garbage in this time, but I've also written some stuff I'm proud of. And that's the whole point. (less)

The anthology will feature stories by Ramsey Campbell and Clive Barker, so that was an incentive in itself. I have to hope that the story will be accepted when it's finished.
The story is about witchcraft and came about after I read an article about houses in my native United kingdom, where cats and other animals were bricked in to the walls to ward off witches. Pretty grim idea. The story will, naturally, only get grimmer from there. (less)

2017 - The Year of Writing

This year, 2017, I made a decision that I would start to take my writing seriously and a friend and colleague of mine, Michael David Wilson of This is Horror and Lit Reactor, gave me a challenge to help me along with that. https://litreactor.com/columns/2017-w...

So I took the challenge and it's been great. Frenetic, but great. As you can see, I've had one short story published in the 9 Tales antho Read more of this blog post »
