My fiction has appeared in a number of publications, some of which are no longer available due to small presses folding. The stories listed below are all still in print and I am incredibly proud of every single one of them.
Dulce Et Decorum Est
Demain Press have published my story ‘Dulce Et Decorum Est’ as a chapbook that is currently available online. I wrote this story for a doppelganger anthology, whilst it just missed the cut, I knew i really wanted this one out in the world. Massive thanks to Dean Drinkel on this one.
My story ‘Nesting Instinct’ featured in the second issue of the resurrected Sanitarium Magazine. The story features a prospective new father dealing with a threat to his family. I’m proud of this one and check out that beautiful cover art!
Stories of the Dead: A Tribute to George A. Romero
I was honoured when my story ‘Grounded’ was included in this charity anthology in tribute to the late, great zombie-master George A. Romero. ‘Grounded’ is set in Ground Control, Houston where an atmosphere of growing paranoia and tension around the space race begins to take its toll.
The Hyde Hotel
My story ‘Tick Box’ is part of a TOC packed full of quality in “The Hyde Hotel”. The story features a hitman, looking for a bargain place to stay (aren’t we all?), and finds he has purchased more than he expected.
No Monsters Allowed
This was my first story published in a physical book and it remains one that I look at fondly. ‘Against The Back Wall’ is a tale of a friendly game of squash that is turned sour by something more than a competitive edge.

I have co-edited three themed anthologies with James Everington, who is a fantastic author in his own right. We have been very fortunate to be able to work with some wonderful writers, who have contributed stories of incredible quality. We have also worked with some fantastic small presses that have worked hard to promote the books and produce a high-quality product for our readers.
The Hyde Hotel
All the stories in “The Hyde Hotel” are set in the titular hotel, a place that can be simultaneously dingy or grand, premium or bargain basement. But no matter how it appears, the Hyde Hotel holds ghosts and mysteries for every resident.
The clue here is in the title, “Imposter Syndrome” feature stories about imposters, doubles and doppelgangers. Every story varies the theme, from twisted changelings to virtual reality celebrity chaos.
This anthology was short-listed for a British Fantasy Society Award in 2018.
Pareidolia is the phenomenon of seeing faces in clouds or hearing voices in static on the radio. We collected stories from some fantastic writers in this volume and we’re really chuffed with the end product.
