Who am I?

A writer of speculative fiction.
An occasional poet.
An editor.
​But always a reader.

Based in Southampton, UK, my published work has appeared in a variety of anthologies and magazines.

I write dark speculative prose and poetry and have been published in a variety of magazines and anthologies. My latest work includes the novella, Bottled, published by Silver Shamrock, and novel, The Five Turns of the Wheel. I have been published in Flame Tree Press’ A Dying Planet anthology, the charity anthology Diabolica Britannica and am included in Silver Shamrock’s Midnight in the Pentagram anthology. My poetry can be sampled in the Horror Writer Association’s Poetry Showcase Volume 6 and 7. I have collected a number of my published, and some unpublished, short stories in The Reckoning, my dark verse in Dark is my Playground, and flash in The Dark Bites, all available on amazon.

I am also co-curator with David Shakes, and more recently, Alyson Faye, over at The Infernal Clock and also wear my editorial hat at The Horror Tree where I support the production of its online magazine Trembling With Fear. If you are looking for markets and to develop your writing, Horror Tree is a fantastic resource.

I am working with writer Alyson Faye on a new project – Black Angel Press – a platform and press for women (including those who identify as women).
