The Haunting of Emily Stone is out now at Amazon

hauntingcover2The Haunting of Emily Stone is out now at Amazon. Set over several years, it’s the story of a man who wants to believe in ghosts, and a little girl who’s forced to tell a terrible lie.

Here’s the blurb:

Twenty-four years ago, Robert Slocombe thought he had proof that ghosts were real. British newspapers filled their pages with photos of little Emily being tormented by what seemed to be a malevolent spirit. And then the whole thing turned out to be a trick, and Robert’s career was over.

Until now.

One day Emily Stone, now a grown woman with a child of her own, contacts Robert out of the blue and begs for his help. She claims that her daughter is being tormented by a dark entity, and that parts of her original story were true after all. Robert dismisses Emily’s claims out of hand and tells her to leave him alone, but then a horrific incident forces him to go back to the scene of his greatest humiliation. Was the haunting of Emily Stone really a hoax, or was there a sliver of truth at its heart?

The usual price is $2.99 from, or £1.99 from It’s also available free for Kindle Unlimited readers to borrow.

Tenderling is out now at Amazon

TenderlingTenderling is a new horror novella about a little girl who realizes there’s something hiding in her family’s new house. Unfortunately, she’s about to discover that getting rid of a Tenderling is pretty much impossible…

This isn’t the first time I’ve written about Tenderlings, but it’s the first time I’ve based a whole book on them. They first appeared way, way back in the first series of Dark Season, and since then they’ve made brief appearances in both Lupine Howl and Dead Souls. Each appearance has added a little more information about what they are, where they come from, and how they operate. In Tenderling, however, you’ll learn a lot more.

Tenderling is $2.99 from Amazon (here’s the link for, and here’s the link for

Ward Z: Revelation is out today!

wardzrevelationfinalcoverWard Z: Revelation is out today from Amazon! As the title suggests, this is a sequel to Ward Z, which came out back in 2013.

Having said that this is a sequel, however, I should point out that for the most part Ward Z: Revelation contains completely new characters. Only one character from the original Ward Z shows up in the new book, although the storyline is definitely rooted in the original and the focus is once again on the cancer mutants. And the original hospital is quite important still…

When I wrote Ward Z, I had no real plans to write a sequel, but the idea kind of snuck up on me. It’s quite different in tone, but I hope you’ll like it. And if you do, then hopefully you’ll be pleased to learn that a third book is on the way later in the year! Ward Z: Apocalypse will finish up this loose trilogy.
