First of all thanks to everyone who has asked me to be their friend over the past few weeks, I'll get around to visiting all your sites and, perhaps, leaving comments before long.
I've just had confirmation from Associated Content that my latest story has appeared on their site, its not really a crime story as such, nobody gets robbed or shot or anything like that, its more a tale of urban paranoia where nothing much happens but rather a lot seems to happen.

Over the past week I’ve been reading The Edge, a splendid novel by the rather neglected Clare Curzon. It combines many elements of a traditional British mystery novel, a murder taking place at a country house, spooky goings on in the woods and dark family…Continue

Are there any fans of Scooby Do out there? If there are and they were watching they must have enjoyed the latest outing for Sea of Souls (BBC1 Tues/Thurs), as it happens so did I.
