About Me

Hello. Welcome. Pull up a chair. Ignore the screams coming from the basement, that’s just my last boyfriend.

I’m a writer from England and for the last ten years I’ve been a fully paid up member of the Sensible People (got a real job, paid the bills, quit smoking, ate salad, worried what other people thought, etc.), but hitting 40 has a way of making you realise that if you don’t do it (whatever “it” may be) now, you may never get another chance. “It”, for me, was being a fiction writer.

I have a passion for suspense and horror (psychological or scary, not gory), metal (music, not the shiny stuff) and seeing life from different perspectives (I usually empathise with the bad guy; Michael Myers was clearly misunderstood).

If there’s one thing I’d love to achieve through writing, it would be to reach those people standing on the edge of a cliff (either metaphorically or physically) and give them some other world to escape to for a while. Just long enough to see a way forward.

Anyway, in the meantime, the reason I’ve set up this blog is to practice, and hopefully to get some¬†honest feedback. Feel free to comment, criticise or point out typos…it all helps.
