Today I am very excited to be making my debut on The Lift Podcast. My story “The Lost Library” is available to listen to or download now.

It’s 1925 and a young woman must decide whether to marry a good man she doesn’t truly love or pursue her dreams; it’s down to Victoria and The Lost Library to help her decide.

Just click here to listen. I hope you enjoy it!

Hello, all. I am very excited to share this with you. The Shadows At The Door Anthology, which features one of my stories, is having a book launch party! The launch is taking place in the UK at Newcastle Castle on the 19th of November starting at 6.30pm.

Regrettably I can’t be there in person but some of the other writers from the anthology will be, and I’ll be there in spirit (no pun intended). I will be online that night sharing any updates that come through from the launch.

This is the blurb for the night’s event:

“To celebrate the launch of ‘Shadows at the Door’ a collection of original ghostly horror edited by Mark Nixon, the Moss Troopers will host a night of ghoulish terror at the Black Gate!

Seven of the authors of stories from the…

What’s on the Horizon

25 Aug

 

Hello, all. Things have been a little quiet, empty and forlorn over here since I moved most of my reviews over to my other blog. I had intended to use this blog for the more free and relaxed life orientated posts. However, it turns out not a lot actually happens in my life *insert pity here*.

Seriously though, what is happening at the moment? This summer I finished studying my penultimate course towards my Open University degree. World U214 Worlds of English. Not my favourite course and there were others I would have preferred to take but circumstances dictated. It’s over and done with ad I’m looking toward my next course, my final module for my Humanities (Creative Writing pathway) BA.

The last course is one I’m quite excited about: A330 Myth in the Greek and Roman Worlds.

My Set Texts for A330 Myth in the Greek and Roman Worlds

Excuse the out of focus shot. I took it in poor light on my mobile.

I have always loved mythology so this is one I’ve been looking forward to. I confess, though, that I am really nervous about getting the grade of pass that I want. If I don’t get the grade of pass I want I wont get the degree classification I want. Unfortunately, there have been a couple of my courses, and one in particular, that didn’t go brilliantly. so I have to do that bit better this time to make up for it. These are goals I’ve set myself, for my own sense of achievement, but as we all know we can be our own harshest critics.

The course doesn’t start until 1st October but they are sending the course material in about 2 weeks time. You know, because they like to give you plenty of time to get into a really good panic before the course begins ;). It’s actually quite handy because you can get a head start on the reading.

 

What else is new? Well, the horror anthology project I am part of has just gone on sale for pre-orders of the hardback. I’m also due to have a story featured early in the new season of The Wicked Library. (In September I think.)

In November I’m also making my debut in The Lift podcast. My story is episode 1 of season 2, the first one after the Halloween special. For those who don’t know The Lift is a podcast about a strange building that calls to people who need to make a choice. Inside they are met by Victoria a little Victorian girl with a music box who guides them on their journey in her lift.

So, all in all, it’s shaping up to be an active autumn/winter season. 🙂

Shadows at the Door – Author Interview With M. Regan

29 Mar

m regan

Hello, folks. Thank you for joining me for another author interview. Today I am joined by Shadows at the Door author M. Regan.

When did you first fall in love with the horror genre?

I think it was more of a “gradual descent” than a “fall.” I actually hated horror as a child! But as I got older and began to prefer stories with more substance— with meat and bones, shall we say— I realized that my favorite parts in fantasies and romances were when things took a turn for the morbid. It took a while for me to understand that “horror” could mean more than gratuitous gore and jump scares, but after I had that epiphany, I became far more intrigued by the genre.

Which subgenre/s of horror would you say your work falls into?

I would say my writing is more along the lines of “dark fiction.” I…

Well, the day is finally here, folks. Regular readers will know that I am (just) one of the writers involved in the Shadows at the Door anthology project. The Kickstarter for the anthology is now live and we need your help.

This anthology is devoted to promoting ghost stories and horror in the classic tradition; M. R. James fans should like this book. We are offering tales of creeping unease in hardback, eBook and audio formats.

Please, if you can, help us get this project that means so much to all of us off the ground. If you are able to make a pledge that would be amazing, but even if you can’t you can still help by spreading the word. Share our posts, tweets and blogs; help us get the word out. Any and all help is appreciated.
