I am a writer of dark fiction, poetry and scripts for stage and screen.

My debut horror novel, “Sunset Hotel” was published in August 2013 and re-released on Kindle in April 2015. My latest work in progress is a historical paranormal horror set in a TB sanatorium and a novella set on Dartmoor.

Other published works include a volume of Haiku, Senryu and Tanka verse (July 2010) and a collection of Gogyohka poetry called Five Lines (May 2013).

As well as longer fiction and poetry, my short stories and flash fiction have been published in various magazines and anthologies (see below).

I written two scripts for TV, Beneath (6 x 30 minutes) (Children’s) and Under the Apple Tree (5 x 60 minutes) (Drama), and one radio script, Defining Fine (1 x 45 minutes)

I am married with three children and live and work in Devon.
