I am a Brummie living in Northampton who loves to write but gets 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. Everyone should read George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-four .

I have work published by AlienBuddha Press, Loft Books, BlackBough Poems, DarkWinter Literary Magazine and Paragraph Planet.

"And the moon is distracted.

Posted on Fri, 29 Apr 2022

"And the moon is distracted..by questions of astronomy.." You have done well to give it a Shakespearean feel. It has a different dimension as a result and works well! Paul :)

Plutinpot still very much in

Posted on Fri, 22 Apr 2022

Plutinpot still very much in our thoughts. Interesting that, only the other day, I was talking to someone about Henry VIII and commenting about all the bad things he did and yet he''s considered to be a great king. It's good to see more output...

Posted on Thu, 21 Apr 2022

There's almost a breathless feel to the pace you write with, CM. I imagine your characters are based on people in real life? Your style is unique and distinctive to you. You could definitely work this is into something bigger. Enjoyed, as always...

Wow - "little Switzerland". That statement itself conjurs images of rolling hills and vales. Visual and joyous. Paul :)
