Andy Hill was born in Scotland in 1978 but moved to the South-West of England at the age of six. Devouring books by such horror greats as Stephen King, James Herbert and Shaun Hutson throughout his teenage years, he first discovered a talent for creating horror fiction shortly before turning 15. Since then, Andy has honed his skills by writing on a variety of subjects but always felt drawn back to his love of the macabre.
"Darkness Calls: A Collection of Short Stories" is a serialised horror story collection delving into themes of madness, loss, violence and the supernatural. The first volume in this series consists of tales that were selected by the author from his large pile of previous works plus one new piece, entitled "Trapped". Future volumes will consist of entirely new works, with Volume Two currently being written.
The novella "Frankensteve", taken from "Darkness Calls: Volume Two" was released independently as a precursor to the main volume in late 2012. Longer than "Darkness Calls: Volume One" in its entirety, this dark comic story is one of revenge, death, rebirth, and an exploding rabbit named Gerald.
Andy is simultaneously working on his first full novel, tentatively entitled "Ghost Ship", which is due for independent release in 2014.
