A Happy Halloween to all the monsters out there. I was given a Halloween treat by Dark Fire Fiction when they said they’d publish my occult horror story NIGHT SHIFT. It’s about a guy called Chris who notices his local DIY store has started opening overnight. That’s strange enough, but the staff are even stranger.
Dark Fire Fiction gives great, free horror and dark fantasy stories. Check it out at http://darkfire.epizy.com/?i=1

I’m delighted to have a story published by Twin Pies in their second issue. When I discovered this magazine and read they like weird and unusual stuff I thought it was worth taking a shot with this story. I came up with a random title and started writing, having no idea what was going to happen or what the journey could mean. I come up with titles after I start writing most of the time so this was a little experiment for me which I’m pleased came together.

My mythic fiction story “A Hard Lesson” tells how Seán, a man who would love to woo a girl called Mary, is granted three wishes by a leprechaun. He soon finds that wishes can make things complicated. By coincidence the anthology will be released on St. Patrick’s Day.
The anthology is called “Legends Reborn: Classic Stories As You’ve Never Heard Them Before”. The featured authors have put their own twists on myths and legends. It’s available to pre-order: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B085J316BT?fbclid=IwAR2hRw6z5WdRtdBGzZcYViegnmpVX7HMFKisqFjvVrP9MGNeMKprMdUMY9I
