haunt bio

I am a Yorkshire born author living in Munich, Germany. In my stories Gods are found in boxes, trees hitch-hike and bears play chess in sunlit plazas.

My work has previously appeared in publications such as Not One of Us, Aurealis, Cabinet de Fees’ Scheherezade’s Bequest, Pantheon Magazine, Innsmouth Magazine, Jabberwocky Magazine, Sein und Werden, Cafe Irreal and streetcake magazine amongst others.
My story Call Out (first published in Innsmouth Magazine) was chosen for the Best Horror Of The Year Anthology 6.

From 2014 to 2018 I worked with Imove Arts and Becky Cherriman on a project called Haunt. For more information on this work, please visit Haunt.

I also write regularly for Fortean Times.

The name of the blog, Wir Essen Immer Bei Kerzenlicht, is German for We Always Eat By Candlelight. I first read this phrase on a Learn German desktop calendar and fell in love with it. So far it has titled at least two stories, a mix CD and now a blog.

One thought on “About

  1. Loved ‘Why The Sea Tastes of Salt …” Found you reading “Call Out” / Best Horror anthology, story so good I had to look you up and found ‘Sea’. Thoroughly enjoyed both. Thank you for writing them.
