Andy is an estranged Northerner, now living in London. He has always had a passion for writing, but a career in IT took hold and refused to let go. After becoming a mature student and graduating with a First in English Literature at the Open University, he has bitten the bullet and begun a career as an author. His story 'Ingrowing' in Twisted 50 Vol 2 is his first (and hopefully not last) published work.
As ever, debate among the judges was heated, but we finally arrived at a list!
Please do leave a comment on this post, and if you are not on the list, keep going, it’s an insane job to judge art. We may also sneak some bonus stories into the eBook too!
I will be in touch soon about when to buy copies of the book so that we can co-ordinate getting on the Amazon Best Seller list.

When it comes to books and films, I avoid anything scary.
I ‘watched’ The Woman in Black with my eyes closed. I will never watch one of the greatest films ever made, The Exorcist (even writing the words gives me the heebie-jeebies). I won’t even venture into the horror section in a bookshop, lest I make eye contact with a scary front cover.
Sci-fi is more my wireless kettle of fish, so why did I choose to write horror? Create50 takes the credit. I began working on a piece for their Singularity50 project.
