Why do you write the things you do? Where do the ideas come from? These are two of my favourite questions to ask authors. I like to discover the winding path to the page almost as much as I like to read the actual story itself. My short story, ‘The Pontianak’s Doll’ will be published in Lost Souls, a Gothic Fantasy anthology this September. If you’re curious about how some of the stories in this gorgeous collection emerged, head over to Flame Tree Publishing’s blog.
Keep a look out, I have two new stories coming in 2018!
‘A Pet is For Life’
Asian urban legends give me the heebie-jeebies. There’s no redemption, no reasoning, no rhyme to how these vengeful ghosts operate. ‘A Pet is For Life’ is my take on the Kuchisake-onna tale and will feature in Behind the Mask – Tales from the Id.
The anthology is scheduled for release in early 2018 by Oz Horror Con and will feature works by authors such as Clive Barker and Ramsey Campbell.
Keep an eye out for the anthology here.
My short story, ‘The Fledgling’ has been contracted with Tales to Terrify and will feature in their 2018 schedule of podcasts. The story delves into a mother’s guilt and the alien landscape of religious education.
Keep an eye out for it on their website here.
If you can’t wait until next year, you can read about some of my other stories in the Published Work section.
