rise' - Pat Barker. The Regeneration Trilogy
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.
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.
