Fascinated by the abnormal and macabre, my writing always has a theme of weirdness and creepiness. I grew up reading horror stories by Graham Joyce, Stephen King, James Herbert and that's where my influence comes from. I was intrigued by Roald Dahl's adult stories and Lovecraft's weird fiction and my poetry has matured more to the weird side.
