Favourite quote: -
The dark and treacherous Lake District and Fells are my home. Beautiful
but deadly. They inspire a lot of my writing.
I have always loved the macabre. While my class mates wrote of ponies my
stories would be of people trapped in caves that dripped acid. When
asked to describe a journey from the source of a river to the sea I did
it from the point of view of a floating dead mouse. I will always be
thankful that my teachers saw this as perfectly normal and I did not get
sent for councelling.
Sadly church camp saw things differently when my tent mates ran away
screaming because of my tale of murderous woodlice. Well they shouldn't
have killed of one. I therefore try to keep the urge to terrify confined
to my writing.
My work ventures into Film, TV, Stage and Radio but no matter the genre
that dark thread persists. I am proud to say the only time Radio Cumbria
had to issue a warning before a broadcast was for one of my plays. The
theme was Family but I still managed to make it twisted.
If my work gives you nightmares then please let me know. I love to hear
I have not written any posts yet.
