Hi, I'm an author, screenwriter, and film director. I was born in Derby, England, in 1975 to working class parents and overcame an extremely poor education in order to get the visions and ideas in my head down on paper. I have written several novels, including the coming-of-age, supernatural ode to movies and the end of childhood, THE ELECTRIC, the video nasty era set DEAD LEAVES, and the straight up horror novel SOCIETY PLACE. I am also the author of the children's Christmas story, THE WINTERMAN. Also, I am screenwriter and filmmaker, having made the low budget post-apocalyptic indie film A RECKONING, along with several award-winning short films. New short film HERE LIES... is now in production. I'd be very, very grateful if you "bought me a coffee" as it will help me continue on this creative path. Thank you.
