David Watkins lives in Devon in the UK with his wife, two sons, dog, cat and two turtles. He is unsure of his place in the pecking order: probably somewhere between the cat and the turtles.

He has currently released four novels and a short story. Each book is well rated and reviewed on Amazon and beyond.

His most recent release is The Exeter Incident, from D&T Publishing.

"Great monsters and dynamic characters make this brutal, bloody, brilliant novel an essential read. I'll never see Exeter in the same light again!" - Tim Lebbon, The Last Storm (praise for The Exeter Incident)

"...gut twisting scenes...” 4* Joe X Young, Gingernuts of Horror (The Devil's Inn)

"..a damn entertaining read.." - DLS Reviews (The Devil's Inn)

Les Vacances

Les Vacances Les Vacances by Phil Sloman

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Phil Sloman is great at writing realistic characters and then doing unspeakable things to them. This novella is no exception to that rule: Frank and Elizabeth decide to go on holiday to France for a change. Their relationship is strained, especially from Elizabeth's point of view, but is also entirely believable. I won't go into the details of Read more of this blog post »

The Devil's Inn by David  Watkins
"Is this a serious book? I have never read such drivel in my life! I pushed myself to keep reading once the characters reached the pub … then it became an utter farce! Sped read "
The Devil's Inn by David  Watkins
"Nice action-packed slasher style horror. I enjoyed reading about the inn and the snowstorm and how all the characters make it there. However, the main lore behind the Devil and the characters were not developed enough. "
David Watkins and 1 other person liked Jen's review of The Devil's Inn:
The Devil's Inn by David  Watkins
"Fast paced gory horror that feels quite retro - in a good way. The build up feels like an episode of Tales of the Unexpected or some late night 70s drama. Interesting."
