    What's New

    The past few weeks have been ridiculously busy. There've been a couple of new books launched, lots of poetry events and conferences, and a hundred and one other things I've probably forgotten to mention.  So, rather than bore everyone with a load of FaceBook updates etc,  I thought it would be easier to simply update my website.

    Obviously, if you've got any questions for me, please don't hesitate to get in touch.

    Raven and Skull

    After a week of horror and upset, six colleagues from the Raven and Skull offices get together to exchange stories and decide which of them has had the worst week. Each one has had a week plagued by adultery, theft, betrayal, murder, cannibalism, black magic and death. The stories they share are dark and twisted. Do you dare to hear what they have to say?
