The Dogs of War

Tap is a platform made for quick stories. As such there's lots of romance and horror on the platform. As a horror writer, this is great, though I've also read (and written) more humorous pieces too, such as my Dog's Life one. But, does poetry work? Can it?...

#NaNoWriMo

November is a month that I've feared for a long time. So many of my amazing writer friends sign up to this strange thing called Nanowrimo and lose themselves for a month. I thought about doing it myself, often. Then I realised how silly I was being and...

Tapping IT

When I first moved into horror, both in my reading and my writing, there was one author I aspired to. I loved (love) Clive Barker, Dean Koontz and many more, but the writer I read the most, and wished to be, was Stephen King. I read all his books,...

Imaginings of Italy

Writing is a wonderful thing. Reading is up there along with it too. Since I've been able to hold a pen, I've written.  Since I've been able to figure out that those letters thrown across the page were actually words and meant something, I've read. I truly believe...

And the Meek Shall Swim… 

I'm writing "And the Meek Shall Swim" on Wattpad. It's the sequel to my Little Mermaid retelling. I was going to leave the story where it ended but the response has been so amazing, I had to carry it on. Thanks to comments such as "savage and beautiful," I...

A year and a half of full cream literary goodness…

Yo-diidly-ho!  Sin-sin-siree at your service.  ‘Tis a while since we last spoke, for which I’m eternally sorry.  Well, at least until the end of this visit, anywho.  I keep trying to pop up now and again, but that Shaun Allan fella-me-lad has his head in mermaids at...

The Lunatic and the Queen…

Good evening, Sin here.  Well, it’s evening where I am?  It quite possibly isn’t where you are.  Time is playing yo-yo with all our lives and tossing time zones about for us to scramble at like children to the outpoured guts of a piñata.  Anywho.  I had a wee visit...

Zo and the Lost Vowel…

Zoe arrived on a Thursday.  It was early afternoon, maybe a little after 1pm.  We’d had our delightful serving of slop-a-doodle-dandy washed down by a lightly chilled, full bodied, vin de pigswill and were relaxing in the conservatory. For conservatory, read...
