A single mother believes her young son is behind a series of accidents. But is the boy really acting out violently after the death of his soldier father, or is Bryony’s abusive ex-husband trying hurt them from beyond the grave?
Two hitchhikers team up for safety after hearing reports of a serial killer on the French roads. When a married couple offers them a bed for the night, and a ride to Calais in the morning, it seems too good to be true, but all is not right at the home of Mr and Mrs Grizard.

I’ve been quiet for a few weeks, but I haven’t been lazy – I’ve got a few new story acceptances to announce as they get closer to publication. In the meantime, Flame Tree has published the first set of responses for their Author Q&A with the Pirates and Ghosts authors (of which I’m one). Find out what inspired each of the brand new stories in the upcoming anthology, to be released at the end of October (pre-orders being taken right now on Amazon).
Flame Tree Publishing, whose anthology “Pirates & Ghosts” I’ll be featured in, have two new calls for anthology submissions. “Alien Invasion” and “Endless Apocalypse” have deadlines of 29 September and pay $0.06 per word.
Go to Flame Tree’s blog for more information about submission.
My short ghost/horror/fantasy story, “Huitzilopochtli, God of Human Sacrifice”, is due to be published by Flame Tree Publishing in October, in their “Pirates and Ghosts” anthology.
