My latest release, Nightmare Fuse is now available for the Kindle through Amazon.
This is something different for me, a bit of an experiment. It’s a single short story, akin to one episode of a TV show. The idea is that each ‘episode’ will be a self-contained story but with shared characters and possible longer plot arcs.
The set-up is that a new, illegal street drug promises to allow a merging of minds. However in some cases it leads to the users becoming rapped in a shared virtual world constructed from their own worst nightmares.
If you have Kindle Unlimited then Nightmare Fuse is free to read, so give it a go and let me know what you think. Would you like to see more?
My latest book, Zombie Shards is now out.
The book follows the first day of a zombie uprising in a small English town. It’s written as a series of interlocking stories with different main characters. Some will survive, others won’t.
I think that the linked story approach is a good way to tackle a subject like zombie apocalypse. It allows me as a writer and you as a reader to experience a variety of viewpoints and experiences.
If this book proves popular, I’d happily write a second one telling the further stories of these characters and others.

Work is well under way on Rest In Fear 2, my second collection of short, scary stories. As with the first book, this one will contain 12 stories varying from the darkly humorous through the bizarre to the downright nasty.
I currently have eleven stories pretty much finished and have started the last one. Once I finish number twelve I’ll go back and edit all of them one final time. Then it’ll be hours and hours and hours of detailed proof-reading.
If things go well I should have it ready to roll in a couple of weeks. Whatever happens I’m determined to make sure it’s available to download before the end of September, ready for the Halloween season.
I’ll keep you all informed…
