I am a Brummie living in Northampton. I love to write but get distracted with other things. I enjoy horror/fantasy and anything that provokes original thought. My literary heroes are Clive Barker, Stephen King, Edgar Allan Poe and HP Lovecraft.

I think that everyone should read George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-four .

I have short stories published in a horror anthology by @thealienbuddha and anthology Vol.IV by @LoftPublishing.

Birds seem to provide inspiration for poems more than any other creature. They really are wonderful, aren't they?
