Bewildering Stories biography
I only started writing about six months ago. The first story I got published was when I won the Spinetinglers monthly competition for October with a story called “The Contract,” which can be read on-line and is also set to be included in the second print anthology. It has also been shortlisted for the short story of the year award.
I’ve had two other stories published at Spinetinglers: “The Museum” and “You Know Me.” Both came second in the November and December competitions respectively.
My first open submission that’s been accepted is by a new American magazine 7th Dimension and is set to be published soon in issue 3.
I’ve just had a open submission accepted by Blood Moon Rising, too, which is set to be published in May in their on-line magazine.
And, of course, I’ve just had a story, “A Sea of Faces,” accepted by Bewildering Stories.
My future: I’m hoping to have the novel I’m working on finished within the next three months. This is my first attempt at writing a novel and I’m loving every minute of it.
About me: I’m 35 years old and come from Nottingham in England. My dream would be to give up my job in security and write full time.
