Ever woken up one morning and wondered if you could write a book? I did, and (for better or worse) the resulting novel was For Rye. Following that, a novella, several short stories, and various pieces of non-fiction work such as essays, reviews, and analysis pieces came into existence. And now that both books are out in the world, as well as my short stories and non-fiction pieces being featured in various online publications, I’m busy formulating some exciting plans for the future.

But I’m getting ahead of myself.

My name’s Gavin, and I like horror and cheese and jam sandwiches. I dislike writing about myself.

The purpose of this site is primarily to point those interested in my work in the right direction, as well as to give visitors some examples of my writing in the way of a selection of short stories and non-fiction pieces. However, I’ve been fortunate enough to connect with many other horror authors in various online writing communities via Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Goodreads, and it’s an honour to be able to showcase some of their works in the Writers’ Spotlight section of this site.

After the staggering reception For Rye and The Last Testament of Crighton Smythe received, I’m feeling more motivated than ever to press on with my own plans for the future. My follow-up novel, Witchcraft on Rücken Ridge, is currently coming together with terrifying haste, but my plans go far beyond that. I can’t wait for my strange brand of horror to unfold further, and for my plans to become clear to all. I very much hope you’ll join me for the ride – shit’s gonna get scary.

But for now, thanks for visiting the site. Please consider signing up to my newsletter at the bottom of this page to be kept in the loop about special offers on my books, recommended releases from my peers, and of course news on the impending Witchcraft on Rücken Ridge.  

Anyway, I’m off for a cheese and jam sandwich.

Happy nightmares…
