Justin Cawthorne

Biography

As a budding writer for far too long I'm hoping [insert current year] will be the year that I finally beat [insert current excuse] and get writing again.
I've dabbled in screenplays, have a taste for the irreverent (as well as the irrelevant) but horror seems to be my chief muse. Still, let's see what else wants to come out.
As long as it's not poetry - I'm really rubbish at poetry.

(p.s. I really appreciate reviews - I love to know what you think of my stories, even if you didn't like them...)
