Forthcoming events

I’ve got a few events coming up at the end of this year and I wanted to give you plenty of advance notice. First off, on 30 October, I’m thrilled to announce that I’ll be heading to the Freemasons Grand Lodge in…

Location Inspiration

I guess I could file this post under the ‘What Works For Me’ heading, but it should also be of interest to those of you who are here more for reading than writing, in particular those who’ve already read STRAIGHT…

AUTUMN: AFTERMATH – SKIN

AUTUMN: AFTERMATH is out this week. To get you in the mood, here’s the first of two pieces of free fiction to set the scene for the new book, both beautifully illustrated by David Naughton-Shires. Today, let me introduce you…

The Autumn artists – David Naughton-Shires

Earlier this week I showed you the sights of post-apocalyptic Lowestoft thanks to the artwork of David Naughton-Shires. ???? ??? Many of you will know that David also provided a number of pieces of art for www.lastoftheliving.net. I thought it…

The worst place to be when the world ends

Jacob Flynn - illustrated by David Naughton-Shires

The first part of another new story has just been added to www.lastoftheliving.net. Jacob Flynn is not a particularly nice person, but even he doesn’t deserve what’s about to happen to him. You see, because of certain things Jacob did…

More stories and artwork added to www.lastoftheliving.net

Another week, another brief slug of free zombie fiction… This week an excerpt from the beginning of AUTUMN: THE CITY has been added to www.lastoftheliving.net, and a new story BRIGID CULTHORPE (brilliantly illustrated once again by David Naughton-Shires). Brigid’s another new character who appears…
