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)

Let The Past Die



'Let the past die. Kill it if you have to. It is the only way to become what you were meant to be.'
Invariably, after I release a book into the world, I fall into a bit of a writing-related funk. In part, it's down to the sheer amount of effort that goes into every aspect of the creation of it, and the realisation that for all of the bluff and bluster before launch, once it's out there, it disa Read more of this blog post »

Don't Smell The Flowers! They Want To Steal Your Bones! by Duncan P. Bradshaw
"Madcap fun and surreal comedy

This is the first time I've read anything by Duncan and it won't be the last. This was a laugh out loud romp thru the bizarre. There are twists and turns that you never expect and you are just along for the ride with no i" Read more of this review »
Don't Smell the Flowers! They Want To Steal Your Bones! by Duncan P. Bradshaw
"This is a hugely enjoyable romp, with some insanely memorable characters. From the first scene, where a date goes awry owing to a triffid-like episode of bone theft, to the bonkers ending, this book delivered a constant stream of laughs. The narrator" Read more of this review »
Don't Smell The Flowers! They Want To Steal Your Bones! by Duncan P. Bradshaw
"Rating DON'T SMELL THE FLOWER! THEY WANT TO STEAL YOUR BONES! is a bit of a challenge. You see, there was this trebuchet, not just any trebuchet but a 1/3rd scale trebuchet. It was glorious. I loved the trebuchet. I consider the trebuchet the best ch" Read more of this review »
Cannibal Nuns from Outer Space! by Duncan P. Bradshaw
"A thoroughly entertaining mix of action and humour. There are endless references to 80s pop culture and B-movie madness complete with a hilarious cast and genuinely creepy antagonists (ugh, nuns!). Bradshaw's style is perfect for this blend of horror" Read more of this review »

" Hiya,

Can you add this to my profile please? I'm showing on the author list but it's not linked through, guessing due to the missing full stop.

Watched the film first, but was intent on reading this and was far from disappointed. Whereas the film feels a lot more open and expansive, the book is very claustrophobic. Some of the twists and turns lacked the same impact, but the end of the book, ...more

Took a while to get into tbh, and you can see some of the twists and turns before they happen, but it was a welcome return to Gilead. Where The Handmaid's Tale is unrelentingly bleak, Testaments does offer you a glimpse of hope at the end of the nutj ...more

Books in the Freezer: Hello! 46 241 Feb 25, 2020 04:49PM  
S.M. Fenton
“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.”
