What is May Madness, I hear you ask?

May is the anniversary of this website, and I like to take time during the month to celebrate, look back at the year that’s over and make plans for the year ahead.

Most importantly, it’s a time when I want to thank YOU: everyone who has bought, read, liked, commented on or supported my writing in one way or another over the past twelve months.


I wouldn’t be here without you. I hope you enjoy the next three weeks of stories, updates and giveaways and take them in the spirit they are intended, as my gift to you.

Let the Bloggening commence!

Dead Jimmy and the Selkie is one of the best stories I have heard here in a while. Where do you find these authors!? Kudos to the slush team. What more do you want? A private eye story with a comedic zombie and a straight man partner, a selkie married to a short bald man in a seaside house, and a zombie who can’t, and doesn’t need to, swim?


Praise for ‘Dead Jimmy and the Selkie’

Really enjoyed this brilliant story with quirky characters, a great twist and clever play of mythical creatures and lots of humour. I wouldn’t have thought it possible but I enjoyed it even more than Dead Jimmy and the Selkie. Hope there are lots more adventures from this original detective team!
