Out Now! Troll, containing my story Would You Sell Your Soul?

Trolls are often depicted as vile tricksters and enemies of humanity. The authors in this volume move beyond these stereotypes to bring us trolls in a variety of settings and situations. Herein the trolls are good and evil, villain and hero, literal or of the new cyber variety – dark tales with unexpected twists and turns.

What's coming next? An update on the next few months releases and what I've been up to.

Thought it was time for an update again after a busy few weeks.

The first book to come out containing one of my stories was Spooky Halloween Drabbles 2015 from Indie Authors Press. It wasn't my first story accepted but it was the first available to buy. I'm glad to say that my story ‘Monster House,’ has been accepted for Spooky Halloween Drabbles 2016.


Another of my stories ‘The Middle of Nowhere,’ has been accepted to a secret battle antho that I will let you know more about as soon as I can.


The Troll antho from Thirteen O'clock Press containing one of my stories will be available to buy from Monday.

I've signed up for Iain Rob Wright's writing programme alongside some of my favourite authors.


And lastly although I don’t have release dates for all of these this is a list of the anthologies I will appear in over the next three months:


Burger Van and Other Short Stories from Michael Bray. (Charity antho)

Madame Movara’s Tales of Terror from Kelly Hambly. (Charity antho)

A Door Appeared by Sinister Saint’s Press. (Young adult antho)

Riding the Dark Frontier by Thirteen O’clock Press. (Weird West antho)

In a Flash by Sinister Saint’s Press. (Young adult antho)


The author line up in some of these is absolutely fantastic and I’m proud to feature alongside them.


I’m also in the middle of two books, one I’m writing on my own and the other with J.C.Michael. More details to follow on both.


As usual I never seem to have enough time to accomplish half of what I would like to get done but fingers crossed I will have a few more acceptances to announce shortly.

Thirteen O'clock Press release their Troll anthology on Monday. It contains my story 'Would You Sell Your Soul?' It's a horror story for big kids. I used to love stories about trolls when I was a wee boy so this gave me a chance to get my own little story out there. Grab a copy and let me know what you think.

The antho will initially be available through:


Both links are to the websites but I will update with links direct to the book as soon as it goes up for sale.
