Horror is great. I mean, who doesn't love being a little bit scared? Who doesn't want to be a little bit grossed out? But, when I wander into my local branch of Waterstones (other book retailers are available), I can't help but notice that the horror section is decidedly small. Sure, you've got your big hitters like King, Herbert, Hill, and Keene (who are all awesome, by the way), but sometimes indie horror has a stranger bite. Or, at least, it tastes a bit funky when you lick it. 

That's where I come in.

After having read most of the horror section in my local Waterstones, I decided to start writing the kind of books that I wanted to read. These books tend to pay homage to classic movies like Evil Dead or American Werewolf in London... or whichever B-Movie I picked up on the cheap in Asda (other supermarkets are available). I wanted to tell stories that made me feel a little bit weird. Sometimes they're creepy, sometimes scary, sometimes spooky and sometimes gory... but they are ALWAYS fun. 

My mission to create fun horror has already seen me write a small collection of stories (novels, novellas, short stories and flash fiction - you name it!) and you can check them out right here

Why Patreon?

I have several projects on the horizon, including (but not limited to):
  • "The Others" Part 3 - this will be the final novel in the trilogy and will happen with or without Patreon support... which is nice!
  • HORROR BITES - This will be a selection of short stories and novellas (more info on this coming soon). The first story will be coming in the next couple of months.
  • An Epic Horror/Dark Fantasy series.
  • An OTT, B-Movie-esque dinosaur-filled extravaganza! 
... and this is where you come in. It's likely that most of these projects will see the light of day with or without Patreon support, but - as most of you will know - writers are predominately powered by coffee. The more coffee we have, the faster we type. The faster we type, the more delicious stories you get to devour. It's simple maths. Every penny you give will enable this writer to feed her caffeine addiction and create the kind of weirdness that only a sleep-deprived brain can come up with.

What's in it for me?

You'll have my undying gratitude and, depending on which tier you go for, various rewards and freebies.

What if I don't want to do the Patreon thing?

That's cool. I get it, it's not for everyone! But, don't worry, you can still support me by buying my books and spreading the word on social media/real life.
