Hi, I'm a 30-something writer who lives in Glasgow. I love crime, thriller, horror and adventure books. I also love movies, comics and music, and I think that comes out in my work. What I like writing is thrillers: sometimes straight up, sometimes with a gothic or psychological bent. I think thrillers, particularly crime fiction, tell us more about the time and place in which we live than any other genre.
I've uploaded a few of my works in progress, as well as my novella 'Halfway to Hell', and a compilation of my short stories. The short stories are my 'singles', so that's probably a good place to start. All comments and criticism are very welcome.
I've had some success with publication so far: my story 'A Living' was shortlisted for the Quick Reads Get Britain Reading award, and published in the Sun Book of Short Stories. I've also had stories published in Scribble magazine and First Edition.
The full-length novel version of Halfway to Hell is available from Amazon as e-book for Kindle, PC, Mac, iPad etc. Just click on the amazon link to try a sample.
