FrankensteinHere’s a new story about the creation of one of my favourite novels, Frankenstein, the one which started it all for science-fiction, arguably.

A keen eye might also spot last week’s story, The Man With the Animal Skins. This was written especially for the reading in Preston at the Continental that I did the other night. I seemed to go very well, I think the night was a success all round. The theme of the night was SKIN, hence the subject matter of the story.

I’m hoping for a big writing session this weekend as I have the time and space for it. There may be yet another tale of delights up here soon. It will either be about superheroes, a witch, Guitar Hero, or Zelda. Or maybe something else entirely, who knows?

Im hoping I will have the same sort of inspiration that Mary had….



here is the conclusion to double dragon, later than planned as ever.

Thanks to Willow Hewitt for doing a little feature on my little blog onĀ Manchester Writing and promoting story number 28 Liberty’s Toe. It made me warm and cosy inside.

Don’t forget, Tuesday this is happening:


With this person, this person, this person , this person, and this personĀ hosted by this person.

happy times,



Hello all,

It’s been a while.

Tigerfish. Lioncake. Monkeyglue.

all part of

Double Dragon.

interesting stuff. I do hope everyone is well. Sorry if you’ve been trying to read a new story on here in the past few days – there hasn’t been one. Hopefully, Monkeyglue will suffice. Next week is the conclusion of Double Dragon.

Now this next bit is very important. I will be reading at Word Soup in The Continental pub in Preston on the 19th of May. That’s a week next tuesday, in laymans terms. If you are in or around the preston are come along, its only three pounds and you get to see all these fabulous peoples read. Funnily enough, Andy Hurley is my cousin. Fancy that.
