Some of his novels are available for FREE.

The Woods of Red Hill
Demons

Smashwords Interview

What do you read for pleasure?
I mainly read horror/thrillers, but strangely enough I'm just getting to the end of 'The Wonderful Wizard of Oz' by L Frank Baum. Since discovering Smashwords, I've been reading a lot by self-publishers and I think it's fair to say there's a lot of talent out there that I would have never have heard of, if it wasn't for the rise and the popularity of the ebook.
When did you first start writing?
In school mainly. When I was ten years old I wrote a lame 123 page 'novel' called The Caribbean Tragedy about a Hammerhead shark killing bathers at a holiday resort. It was a complete rip-off from Jaws (my favourite film) and was what would you expect from a ten-year-old.
