Michael Huddlestone


I guess you would call me a hybrid.

A cross between a logical thinker and a creative dreamer; with a dark streak rippling just below the skin.

By day I swim neck deep in an ocean of numbers, data and code; by night I write. I am a horror writer who recently re-discovered his lost passion for writing.

I am a father of two, drawing my inspiration from the world around me and adding my own dark flavour to it. Looking to answer my own constant question: "What If?"

I am an avid follower the writings of Stephen King, Anne Rice, Dean Koontz, and PJ Tracy. I do enjoy a blend of horror and thriller genres. I am a proud member of the Townsville Writers & Publishers and Townsville Speculative Fiction communities.

My tastes in literature lie in those stories that send a shiver down your spine and cause you to check under your bed at night. Those tales that keep you on the edge of your seat waiting to see what happens next.

I am currently working on my first novel so watch this space.

I hope you enjoy reading my work.
