This is the original front cover, with my name alongside the big hitters. Before my name got taken off again. Darn it!
And on to business…
My short story, the Art of Lucid Dreaming, is featured in the new anthology Torn Realities out now on Post Mortem Press.
About the book…
The back cover states…
This is not your typical Cthulu anthology. Torn Realities deals with Lovecraft’s themes of forbidden knowledge, the idea that we are essentially untethered from the workaday world. The stories in this book actively seek the gray area in horror with tales of regular people in irregular situations.
Described by the editor as a ‘good mood piece,’ The Art of Lucid Dreaming tells of the potential pitfalls and dangers of dream experimentation. It is especially pleasing to see my work alongside such luminaries as Clive Barker, James Dorr, Jessica McHugh, Matt Moore, and Jamie Lackey. I am truly humbled!

I write stuff. Pretty much any stuff. My fiction and non-fiction has appeared in over a hundred publications worldwide and my books have been both traditionally and independently published. My first book, Into the Dragon's Lair – A Supernatural History of Wales was published back in 2003, and I've worked extensively in the freelance journalism industry, contributing features to numerous international publications including Fortean Times, Bizarre, Urban Ink, Loaded, Record Collector, Maxim, and a regular column to the Western Mail newspaper.
I lived in China for over nine years where I taught English at universities in Beijing, Changsha and Guangzhou during my search for enlightenment, before moving back to the UK in January 2013 to work as staff writer on Nuts magazine. Later, I was senior writer on Forever Sports magazine, associate editor at a shortlived title called Coach, and I currently write business news for a trade magazine about the plastics industry. It's far more satisfying than it sounds. My latest fiction releases have been Human Waste (on Deviant Dolls Publications) and X5, my fifth collection of short fiction. I also edit, proofread, ghost write, and drink far too much craft beer.
