And lots more short stories.

Will keep you all posted.

2011. Can believe how fast this year has been. However, I had always believe that time waits for no one. So I had to bust my ass with my writing, and have achieved the following:

32 short stories published/accepted
33 poems published/accepted
4 film reviews published/accepted

Making this the best year of my writing career, and there's lots more planned for 2012.

Last June, I took up poetry, adding another string to my bow.

Also, I attended my first ever literary convention - Fantasycon - where I networked with lots of writers and editors. The experience was fantastic and will attend next year's.

I would like to end this review with a special thanks for the support, guidance and friendship for this magical year, and I will continue to go forward achieving greater dreams:

Chris Bartholomew, Dorothy Davies, Lorraine Horrell, Naomi Clark, Aaron J. French, Brandon L. Rucker, George Wilhite, Stan Swanson, Jessy Marie Roberts, Jessica Weiss, G.R. Yeates (Greg James), Dean M. Drinkel, Joe Jablonski, Darren Gallagher, Traci Allison, Berni Stevens, Donna Dawson, Norman J. Warren, Dolores Harrington, Adrian Chamberlin, David Fingerman, Gary McMahon, Stephen Volk, Charles Day, Suzanne Robb, CJ Lines, Dave Jeffrey, Cinsearea S, Tim Marquitz, Cindy Crosmus, Amanda Norman, A.M. Stickel, Kevin G. Bufton, Weldon Burge, Greg Chapman, Simon Clark, Garry Charles, Tim Reed and Arcevia Services.

Best wishes to any reader of this blog, and a happy new year.

Short story, The Waiting, will be in Static Movement's Midnight Train anthology, edited by the wonderful Dorothy Davies.

Friday, 9 December 2011


Join ADRIAN CHAMBERLIN, DEAN DRINKEL, WAYNE GOODCHILD, JONATHAN GREEN, DAVE JEFFERY and BARBIE WILDE signing the stunning anthology PHOBOPHOBIA at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Friday 9th December from 5 – 6pm.

There is nothing to fear but fear itself. Twenty-six original tales of horror by established masters of terror and talented new voices lie within this Lexicon of Fear. Beware the dark power of words in Bibliophobia... a carnival double act made in Hell can be found in the clown cemetery in Coulrophobia...

The fear of open spaces manifests itself in Kenophobia, a tale of the ultimate emptiness - the Great Void that awaits us all... the fear of beautiful women is fully justified in Venustrophobia, a tale of futile defence against the Succubus...

Denying yourself a place in Heaven is one way to avoid Jesusphobia, but the only alternative means Hell to pay... a playwright fights his fear of the colour yellow by creating an unusual addition to his Dramatis Personae in Xanthophobia...

Open the pages. It is time to learn your A to Dread...


Forbidden Planet is the largest store of its kind in the world. Some of the biggest names in SF, Fantasy and Cult Entertainment have come to our London Megastore for events, including Jonathan Ross, Kevin Smith, Sam Raimi, Guillermo del Toro, John Landis, Terry Gilliam, Christopher Lee, Simon Pegg, William Gibson, Neil Gaiman, Terry Pratchett, and Stephen King.
