The amazing Chris Barnes of Dynamic Ram Audio has worked some kind of ridiculous alchemy to turn my sow's ear of a short story into this superb audio version. Please feel free to check it out at the following link and then search out more of his fabulous audio work. Many thanks also to Steve Upham, who first published it in his fantastic Estronomicon EZine, in what was my first published story. Chuffed to bits with it.

05/08/2009 - Well I've been incredibly slack in updating the site!! The most important news since I last updated is that I have had my first acceptance. My story 'Pestilence Takes a Cruise' will be appearing in a forthcoming issue of the much respected E-Zine Estronomicon from Screaming Dreams Press. The acceptance described it as 'disgustingly funny' which just about made my year!

11/06/2008 - Well my entry is in for Pulp Idol 2008. Both 'Lice' and another story, 'The Esential Almanac' have turned into longer pieces so I ended up submitting 'Reels of Fortune' which only required a small amount of tweeking to get it within the word limit. Fingers crossed Ican at least get an honourable mention.

08/05/2008 - The third annual SFX Magazine writing competition, Pulp Idol 2008, has opened for submissions. Last year I entered Tap,Tap but wasn't shortlisted. This year I hope for an improvement on this and am working on a new story especially for the competition entitled 'Lice'.
