The annual charity ‘Deathlehem’ anthology is out now from Grinning Skull Press and features my story ‘A Christmas Eve Visitor,’ which was previously unavailable in print.

This year’s entry, A Tree Lighting in Deathlehem, features the gruesomely brilliant cover you see above, and has work by Dave Jeffrey, Rose Blackthorn, Christopher Stanley and many more excellent writers of horror and dark fiction. Edited by Michael J. Evans and Harrison Graves, proceeds from the anthology will go to The Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation.

New free audio story – ‘Afraid Of My Own Shadow’ now on Tales to Terrify

*** 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.

New podcast: Listen to me on Madness Heart Radio with John Baltisberger

On Thursday, I had the pleasure of chatting with John Baltisberger on his podcast, Madness Heart Radio.

On the show, we talked about my story, ‘Contaminated,’ in Madness Heart Press’ first anthology Creeping Corruption, along with my novelette, Cinders of a Blind Man Who Could See and my story, ‘Snap’ in the new In Darkness, Delight: Creatures of the Night anthology.

We also got into talking about living in different parts of the world and the effect that has had on me as a person and on my writing, as well as how running, walking and fishing are so compatible with the writing process.
