If I didn't write I might just go mad
I remember telling my careers adviser in school that I wanted to be a writer and he just laughed at me, said I wasn't bright enough and tried to persuade me to join the army instead (the school I attended didn't exactly encourage creativity). In a perverse way, I took great inspiration from that, and set about proving him wrong. So here I am!!
My latest novella, Dead of Night is available through Damnation Books and the Edgar Allen Poe-themed anthology Return of the Raven, featuring my terrifying tale Band of Souls, is available here.
