Welcome! I'm a UK based horror fiction author. I write horror and speculative fiction, including short stories, horror anthologies and audio drama scripts. I'm also the co-creator, writer and VO of the Calling Darkness podcast, and sole creator of paranormal mystery podcast Whisper Ridge, coming your way soon.
I'm currently write for the wildly popular No Sleep Podcast, Whispers in the Night, The Grey Rooms and purveyors of terrifying tales, Shadows at the Door. I seem to have developed a taste recently for podcasting, audio drama, and script writing, and have lots more exciting collaborations and productions coming soon.
Please do explore my website. You'll find links to my published works, thoughts about horror on my blog, general news and announcements including info about the latest podcast episodes released, my paranormal ghost town series 'White Pines', and my next horror anthology 'Cruel Works of Nature', due out soon.

Horror fiction author with a paranormal twist
I specialise in the dark and mysterious, with a particular penchant for the paranormal, the parallel, and the phantasmagorical. Which is a fancy way of saying I like to write scary stories about things that go ‘bump’ in the night.
Why? Well, that’s easy. Life can be dreary and colourless sometimes. I like to plumb the depths of my imagination, create worlds in which a person could get truly lost, worlds inhabited by monsters, mayhem and madness.
I am heavily influenced by modern writers like Angela Carter and Stephen King, and the classics, including Shelley, Charlotte Perkins Gilman, Lovecraft, Poe and Bram Stoker. I try and include an element of magic realism in my work wherever possible.
I’ve been writing for most of my life, for business and pleasure. I have a degree in English Literature and Drama from Winchester University, and am working towards a Psychology degree with the Open University to help me fully explore the human mind and add a layer of realism to my work.
Coming soon…my horror anthology Cruel Works of Nature
My first collection of horror stories is coming out in December 2018, and is brought to you by Haunted House Publishing. Cruel Works of Nature is an introduction to my dark little world, featuring stories you have heard before on No Sleep and Whispers, and others that are completely new and exclusive to the book. As the title suggests, this horror anthology deals with the natural world, but not as we know it. Monsters, natural anomalies, phenomena and much more…Mother Nature has more than one face, but you might not like this one. The book will feature my own illustrations, too.
