Hey guys!

To commemorate the release of the latest installment of The Fragile Things, I'm offering Part I for free for a limited time on Amazon. If you've enjoyed some of the stories on my DA page, then maybe you'll like this too! It's a four-part horror serial about a non-sparkly vampire and a heroin addict. Just a bit of light reading ;) Anyway, if you think this might be your thing, here's a bit more about it:

Have you ever had a friend you'd die for? One you'd kill for?

At seventeen-years-old, Jennifer should have the world at her feet. Instead, she's an ex-heroin addict living in a council estate with Tony, her boyfriend and former dealer. Shunned by her family and friends, she dreams of something greater than she's been given.

Beautiful and strange, Ebony has moved in across the street. She's just lost the one person in her lonely existence to cancer. She's also a centuries-old vampire, struggling to cope with murderous outbursts and the desire to be something more.

When these two lost souls meet, an unusual friendship begins.

But with the news of Morris, Tony's sadistic best friend and drug-dealing partner, being released from prison, Jennifer knows it's only a matter of time before his path of vengeance leads to her and Ebony, too.

With a cast of memorable characters, a village full of secrets, and a gripping story, The Fragile Things is a layered tale of friendship, hope, survival and what it truly means to be human.

It can be downloaded from the following:

Amazon US
Amazon UK

If you decide to get a copy, please let me know what you think! Or if you're feeling particularly generous, feel free to leave a review. ;)

That's not me in the picture above, but I wish it was.

I'm a writer - or rather, I'm trying to be. I've previously reviewed films and books for a few websites and publications here and there, but decided very early on that I didn't just want to offer a critique. I wanted to create, too. I love all kinds of stories. Really. My taste in books mirrors my taste in films - I enjoy everything from The Sound of Music to Zombie Flesh-Eaters.

Anyway, I don't bite , but it would be nice to get in touch with other writers or artists, so feel free to send me a message :P

To date, I have one book published:…

I'm a massive horror movie junkie. I love the outdoors more than anything, but I still <3 my home comforts. When I'm not writing or doing my day job, I like to keep active - climbing, running, hiking, doing as many ridiculous things as possible.

“Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.”

Hello! As you're a writer, I thought you might be interested. I just made this new group Try-Your-Page and it's where you post the first page (or any excerpt) of a story/novel and see if others would turn the page. Please join if you're looking for critique or just something to read. :)

Here, have a cookie for my bothering you:
