I live in the simply marvelous county of Wiltshire in England with my wife Debbie and our two cats, Rafa and Pepe.

We wile away the wee hours learning arcane incantations and medieval wind instruments, surviving solely on what our two furry faced fellows bring us. Winter is a bleak time indeed, when the common vole, the staple of our diet slumbers deep within the earth.

After writing a number of books and stories on the undead to begin with, I now write whatever weird and wonderful stories infect my brain. Sitting outside of conventional genres, my books have a mix of comedy, horror and the bizarre, you can never be too sure what the hell is going to happen next.

With my own label, EyeCue Productions, the physical copies of my books are someth

When you bust out a brilliant scene, or a killer chapter, even before you start editing that bad boy, there really is nothing like it.(less)

Recently, I started writing a manuscript called ViewPoint, I got a chapter into it, and despite having a decent idea of the story and what I wanted to do, I just wasn't that into it, so I shelved it. The trick is knowing when something just won't work and moving onto something else that will.(less)

Hello!

Normally, at the end of each year, I'll list my top five books, albums or general cool things, this year though, I'm doing summat a little different. I think in the main this is down to turning 40, a chance to look back over four decades of existing and wondering how many more I have ahead of me. Now, it's all about making sure I experience the things I want to, whether that's something a... Read more of this blog post »

Chump by Duncan P. Bradshaw
"An awesome collection of zombie shorts from the twisted mind of Duncan Bradshaw. In these stories you get blood, gore, debauchery and laughs. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves the horror/zombie genre."

My favourite Bond eras are the Moore years, silly names, cool gadgets and OTT storylines. Whilst the two tales in here fall within the Connery range, they still tick most of the boxes. To be honest, I wasn't sure if I would enjoy this at all, it's no ...more

I'm going to cop out reviewing this as the idea, concept and general grotesqueness of the characters earn it 4 stars, yet this so badly needs a good go through with a decent copy editor, so that's 2 stars, with 3 being a fair score in the middle. The ...more

This was recommended to me as a horror/weird mashup, and for the most part I enjoyed it. The horror itself is light, which works well, but for me personally, not all of the stories landed. You can't knock the writing itself or the style, just I'm pro ...more

“Writing fiction twists your brain in knots.

You get to experience the life of a compulsive liar. You are constantly double-checking for consistency, acting as continuity supervisor for your own imagination.

You become a detective, picking through the diary of a suspect; checking for the slip up that undermines the story and breaks the alibi.

You wake up sweating about some detail that wrecks the timeline, or breaches the established character of the person you invented.

You craft wonderful, frightening people, who you fall in love with, but must discard.

You find brilliant twists that you can’t use because they somehow subtly compromise the story.

It drains you. You can’t sleep. You are preoccupied with minutia.

It’s brilliant.”
