My tagline says I write dark and introspective fiction. This means that in my stories, bad things happen to bad people, but sometimes good people too. They are tales about scary things that can’t ever happen, and some that might. It also means that you feel something when you read them. That’s one facet of who I am and what I do, the biggest maybe. The fact is that at the core, I am a creator.
While it’s true I build stories, I also build real things too. Sometimes that means painting sad little blanket ghosts, but mostly I enjoy resurrecting and repurposing, making useful things from what might otherwise be waste. The most appropriate example of this is Frank the Book Bike. Frank started life as a scrap bike frame and a stack of old palettes, and now he hangs on a wall in the basement, waiting for the day he can get back out and sell some books.
So, that’s me in a misshapen nutshell. The last couple of years have brought a lot of change to my personal life, some amazing, some the opposite of that, but all of it has required most of my time and energy so I haven’t been able to focus on writing as much as I thought I would be able to. I’m in a period of transition right now, working on what I want the future to look like. The first part of that is a refresh of the existing books in The Storm series, and continuing to submit short stories to amazing anthologies like Solstice in Purgatory from The Seventh Terrace.
Don’t forget to sign up for my newsletter (you’ll find the link below) to access subscriber exclusive short stories and to keep up to date with upcoming book news, which at the moment means the “final” instalment of The Storm series, and my new paranormal series, Beyond the Divide. You will only receive emails two or three times a month, which may include a blog post update, but mostly short stories to enjoy. I never share or use your personal information for any other purpose than to send you those emails. Please reach out anytime if you have any questions, or have any feedback you would like to pass along. I am grateful for the opportunity to share my unique forms of madness with you.
I hope you are well. Take care.
