I am currently Level 4 Lead for our Creative and Professional Writing students, module leader for Level 4 'Poetry, Drama and Fiction' and Level 5/6 modules 'The Novel' and 'Science-Fiction, Fantasy and Horror'. I also lecture on our MA in Creative Writing and run our 'Writing Comes Alive' programme.
I am mostly interested in Contemporary Fiction, American Literature, The Short Story and Horror Literature.
My published novels include Asboville (2006), Soldier Boy (2009) and FAN (2014). My short stories have appeared in such places as Best New Horror, Black Static and Cemetery Dance magazine. An essay on the ghost stories of LTC Rolt appears in 'Horror Literature from Gothic to Post-Modern (McFarland, 2020).
