I was born and bred in a rural corner of Devon, but now live among the breweries and canals of central England. I am a horror and fantasy author, poet, and journalist.
In 2003 I graduated from Edge Hill University, Lancashire, with a BA Hons degree in Drama and Writing. During this time I decided that my future lay in writing words rather than performing them.
The most unlikely of horror writers, I’m scared of just about everything, and still can’t sleep in a fully dark room. I go weak at the sight of blood, can’t share a room with a spider, but do have a streak of evil in me somewhere.
Some years ago I worked at an antique auction house and religiously checked every wardrobe that came in to see if Narnia was in the back of it. I’ve still not given up looking for it.
