Latest Update

The time I once set aside for writing is now pretty taken up with sheperding my new baby daughter, as you can probably tell by the lack of posts on this blog! I'm still doing some writing, and I keep active in the UK comic community, but this year is pretty much a write-off.

Don't worry though, my fan(s) (Mum), I've a few strips currently being drawn by artists that will be launched over the next year. 

First off, I have a story in this year's horror anthology, Something Wicked. A four page twister titled 'Mommy's Little Angel'. This is usually launched later in the year to coincide with the Thought Bubble Festival in Leeds. The legendary lads at Futurequake Press have also approved another story for their popular sci-fi anthology, Futurequake. This time it's a seven page vision of a dystopian Britain where advertising has taken a turn for the worse, title 'London Rocks.' I'm particularly pleased with this script but it probably won't be released until next year.

I have another script approved by the awesome team at Psychedelic HQ, titled 'Vampires and Indians', which will appear in the first of their new line, The Psychedelic Journal of the Wild West.

Of course, there's always my own anthology Hallowscream, which I edit with the weird and wonderful Malcolm Kirk. We're now on our seventh edition of this mighty tome and you'll be able to download it for free, this Halloween, here. I have two short stories included in this edition, 'Monster Vision' and 'Caught in a Moment'.

So, as you can see, the miniature sleep thief I spawned last year hasn't completely stopped me in my tracks. I'm sure she'll give me plenty of material later in life so I'll keep her for the time being ;)
