I have dreamt about being an author of horror fiction for as long as I can remember. Few other genres ever captured my interest enough to keep me engrossed and I have always been inspired by those whom I consider to be the greats in this field, the likes of Richard Laymon, Guy N. Smith and James Herbert to name a few. I have a law degree from the University of Westminster, and was a semi-pro wrestler until my body screamed NO MORE! I now work in the legal section for the Ministry of Justice and live in Kent (the garden of England), with my six adorable rescue cats. Though I have been fortunate enough to have several of my short stories accepted in various publications, “Night of the Kraken” is my first attempt at a full scale novel, and I am delighted that Severed Press have accepted it for publication. I hope that it will become the first of many.
