These aliens had come to Earth and decimated the human population. But it wasn't by war that they did so. For some reason, they are addicted to watching our blood flow. Now, I don't know if it's because of the red, or the patterns it forms. It's really not explained enough. But they capture humans and cut them up in daily pe ...more

Horror writing was something I stumbled on when experimenting with different genres and having to write a project for a masters degree in creative writing. I didn't know I could write on the darkside, but if I'm writing uninhibited then the darker shades of society and life seem to filter into my writing. I can't ignore it and the stories end up writing themselves.
Soon there will be another story
