David Owain Hughes is a word-slinger of horror and crime fiction, who grew up on trashy b-movies from the age of five which helped rapidly instil in him a vivid imagination. He’s had multiple short stories published in various online magazines and anthologies, along with articles, reviews and interviews. He’s written for This Is Horror, Blood Magazine, and Horror Geeks Magazine.

Hughes is the author of six horror novels, four short story collections and a plethora of novellas. Although he predominately writes within the bracket of horror and its multiple sub-genres, he’s recently branched out into crime fiction and is slowly carving out a superb series of crime/noir thrillers under the umbrella title of South Wales.

Recognition

“There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.” ― Ernest Hemingway

Julian’s fingers glided across his PC’s keyboard with frantic yet accurate movement. The clack, clack, clacking sound of the keys acted as a background score to the shifting images, sounds and voices inside his head.
He braved a glance up at the clock above his computer but didn’t dare stop his enth Read more of this blog post »

“Well, you know what they say. You have to work on relationships to keep them fresh. This little jaunt may just prove to be the thing needed to spice up their relationship. Of course, the likelihood that Mary would survive the reunion celebration was pretty low, but that was all right too.”
David Owain Hughes, What Goes Around

“She smiled, as she rammed the tip of her knife into his left eye first, plop, then the right, plop. They popped like water balloons, and emptied onto his lap, as he yelled and screamed for mercy.”
David Owain Hughes, White Walls and Straitjackets
