Ladies and Gentlemen, words can barely express my delight at getting the opportunity to share with you my short story I Am Your Special Dog. It’s a splendid and charming story of a boy and his magical friend and the silly adventures they have in the Land of Outrageous Hats. It appears in the Winter 2012 issue of Rose & Thorn Journal. Go have a read, kids!

Well huzzah and hurrah all round! My short story She Kicks Amongst the Cabbages has appeared in the Fall 2011 issue of Bare Root Review.

It is a ludicrous story of dancing and music and vegetables and little expanding birdies. Go have a look, it’s worth a chuckle!


Hurrah! What better way to start the week than with a lovely story by yours truly? (That’s rhetorical by the way, I know there are literally billions of better things.) Anyway, my short story Love, Wrong Love, (but love nonetheless) has appeared in Issue 5 of Ear Hustler Magazine. It’s a fun story, with many japes *and* larks. It originally went by the name of ‘Home Invasion’ but I changed it because, honestly, who doesn’t like a bit of wrong love every now and then?


Hurrah! By all accounts one of my better stories, We Left Him With The Dragging Man has appeared in Issue 26 of Jersey Devil Press.

Inspired by such films as Stand By Me and Super 8, and starring some sassy in-your-face kids, it’s the bees knees, sugar! Why don’t you toddle on over and have yo’self a read?


Hello my friends, and happy New Year!

Two bits of news to welcome in 2012! First of all my short story A Haunting has appeared in the latest issue of SNReview. It is a spooky tale of love and revenge on the high seas. (Revenge, high seas, not included)

Secondly, and I am legitimately delighted about this, my short story Romancing the Crab has been snapped up by the delightfully frisky folks over at Red Lightbulbs, and it will appear in their seventh issue. It is a ludicrous piece of fiction with “worrying symbolism” that fans of John Carey can really get behind. Look for it soon.
