I’ve been sending off my short and long fiction to various ezines and print magazines lately- including two brand new stories, and some pieces of flash including a few lines to a collective poem (a murmuration) as part of Linda France’s residency being run by New Writing North.

What I’ve been reading:-

Currently:- Haverscroft by debut writer S.A. Harris who lives in Norwich (where I was born and trained to teach). If you love supernatural haunted house mysteries with great atmosphere I can recommend this one to you.

Lost Films ed. by Max Booth with stories in by the talented Gemma Files and Horror Tree writer Kev Harrison and others. But I did really enjoy those two writers’ stories.
