haunt bio

I was born in North Yorkshire, England, and now live in Munich, Germany.

My fiction has appeared in Nightmare Magazine, Shadows & Tall Trees 8, Analog – Science Fiction and Fact, Three Lobed Burning Eye, Shimmer, and Lackington’s amongst others. Three of my stories have been reprinted in Ellen Datlow’s Best Horror of the Year series.

My debut short story collection ‘To Drown in Dark Water’ is now out from Undertow Publications www.undertowpublications.com/shop/to-drown-in-dark-water.

As well as fiction, I have been published in Back Street Heroes Custom Motorbike Magazine, 100% Biker, Kerrang Magazine, and Imperica Magazine. I also write regularly for Fortean Times and Folklore Thursday.

From 2014 I worked with Becky Cherriman and Imove on Haunt, the Saboteur Award shortlisted project inspired by my own teenage experiences, about Harrogate’s haunting presence in the lives of people experiencing homelessness in the town.

I recently worked with astrophysicist Dr Chris Harrison on a script for a planetarium show designed for people with a vision impairment.

I also like old motorbikes and vintage cocktails.

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.
