Photography: Tree with early morning sun

I’ve been neglecting my photography in favour of writing lately, but yesterday was a lovely autumnal day (and for once not raining… ) so we took the dog for a long walk in the park opposite our house and I took my camera. I was really pleased with one of the images I took. I’m also quite taken with the colour version, so may also add that to my photography website in due course.

FEAR: A Modern Anthology Of Horror And Terror

On 3 October 2012, my short story, ‘The Sad Story of the Death of a King’, was published in FEAR: A Modern Anthology Of Horror And Terror Volume 2.  The tale centres on three young boys who encounter something quite unexpected while out trick or treating on Hallowe’en…

‘Sad Story’ is the first piece of writing I have submitted to a publisher for many years so I was both totally surprised and absolutely thrilled when it was accepted. Holding an actual book in my hands, with my work in it, is a truly wonderful feeling and I really hope it’s something I get to experience again.

And just to make things even sweeter, my partner Raymond also had a story accepted for the anthology. His ghostly tale, ‘Hurbane Wulf’, is in Volume 1.

FEAR is published by the lovely folk at Crooked Cat Publishing and all the proceeds are going to two very worthy charities: Barnardo’s and Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF).
