Thrilled that the lovely folk at The Mechanics Institute Review have chosen my (very) short story, ‘At the End of the Meal’, for their first virtual MIRLive event, taking place this Friday, July 10th at 7.30pm.
Focusing on the theme of ‘Emergence’, the evening will be hosted by Kayleigh Cassidy and Alex Petropolous, and I’ll be reading alongside writers, Oisin Breen, Miki Lentin, Tom McColl, Adrian Higgins and Mary Brown.
I’m delighted to have been invited along to this Friday’s online LGBTQ literary festival, Queer the Shelves. The event will be running throughout the afternoon and evening, and I’ll be taking part in a panel, A Little Something Literary, at 7pm.

And further gargantuan thanks to Jim McCleod at the fabulous Gingernuts of Horror for featuring my interview. We chatted, among other things, about the inspirations behind loving dark fiction, as well as discussing how LGBTQ characters and issues are both fascinatingly represented (and not) within the horror genre….
Thank you to the amazing Tony Walker for featuring my short story, ‘The Dining Room Ghost‘, on his totally brilliant Classic Ghost Stories podcast, along with an interview – it was great to chat about the inspiration for the story and other spooky things…
Since We Wait‘s fabulous launch, I’ve been blown away by the kind reviews and responses. I’m very pleased that my haunted house novel will be available to download for free on Kindle this weekend. And the offer kicks off tomorrow – on Valentine’s Day! 🙂
We had the most amazing night last week at Nottingham’s brilliant Five Leaves Bookshop. GIANT thanks to Five Leaves and the incredible Jane Spencer from Eyrie Press, and to all the fabulous friends, both old and new, who came to help celebrate my new novel – you’re all wonderful. We Wait has been well and truly launched!
My fourth novel, We Wait, is published today!! Thank you, thank you, Eyrie Press, and to everyone else who has supported this book – I can’t honestly express how happy I am (and the cats seem happy too)
Thank you tons to BBC Radio Nottingham’s incredibly warm and welcoming John Holmes for inviting me to join his Sunday morning show to review the papers in the final run-up to We Wait’s publication (I’m so excited!!)
