THANKS FOR VISITING MY PAGE*****MY STORY 'CUTS' PUBLISHED IN 'THE COLORED LENS', WINTER 2014 - NOW AVAILABLE********** ONE YEAR ON SMASHWORDS --> OVER 8300 DOWNLOADS --- THANK YOU ALL*****Here's some stuff about me; if you want the stories they are down the page.I'm a writer of mainly horror, science-fiction and fantasy stories, and live with my wife and three cats in County Durham, England. When I'm not being a full-time registered carer, I enjoy writing, reading, watching films and TV, drinking good beer with good friends, and collecting rejection letters.In the past I have had stories published in small press magazines including, "Cthulhu Cultus", "Dark Legacy", "Dread", "Pop Fiction", "The Domain", "The Ancient Track", "Blue Silver Dementia"; e-zines and websites, "Frightnet", "Nightscapes", "Dark Portal", "unHolyTower" "alt.ghoststories.", "Writers Dungeon", and "Raise The Dead".After a ten year break, and thanks to friends Jonathan Strickland and Robert Wilkins, and my wife, I am seriously writing again, trying to catch up on a boat-load of new ideas, and sending them out into the world. My newest success is my short science fiction story 'Cuts', which appeared in 'The Colored Lens', Winter 2014 Issue.My many influences include H.P.Lovecraft, Stephen King, Clive Barker, Clark Ashton Smith, Thomas Ligotti, Angela Carter, Saki and many more.Of the stories here, UNCONTAINABLE, BLUE, DREEK MIDWINTER and EYE CHECK are the most recently written, while HUNTING COMP, OBLIVIOUS and CONS go back to the mid 1990's.Thanks to all who have downloaded, read or reviewed my stories. Like most writers [some don't give a hoot], any feedback is very important to me, and I appreciate every review.Any comments, queries, or correspondence can be sent off to firstname.lastname@example.orgEnjoy.The next story to be published here will be ???
