*** Trigger warning – This story contains scenes of violence and gore that some listeners may find difficult ***

I’m delighted to announce that my story, ‘Afraid Of My Own Shadow’ has been published today on Tales To Terrify.

This is a story that had a complicated evolution and was actually written twice, once from the perspective of the ‘monster’ as it happened and the other time as it appears here, as a police interview, recounting the events.

My wonderful beta readers unanimously preferred this version, as it ratcheted up the curiosity about the events and the ambiguous nature of what had happened. I hope you enjoy it!

In the same episode, you will also hear Gertrude Atherton’s ‘The Striding Place.’ Listen now, below.

Left Behind

Happy Monday, everyone.

My story, ‘Left Behind,’ is now available on Hawk & Cleaver’s The Other Stories podcast. Rounding off their ‘Abandoned Places’ theme, which has been packed with fantastic tales, this story imagines a future Venice, underwater, and a woman for whom the city holds a special significance, visiting with her son. But exactly what has been Left Behind?

Happy Monday to you, folks, and here is news of a new story, written for The Other Stories, from Hawk and Cleaver. ‘Suppression’ is a story of dystopian terror, imagining the world in a not so distant future, where your genes may have consequences far beyond your propensity for disease, etc.

In this story, the excellent Persephone Rose delivers all the urgency I’d intended for the tale and more, while the sound effects employed by H&C’s production team help bring the tale vividly to life.

I hope you enjoy it. Listen to ‘Suppression’ by clicking here or on the image, above.
