A year of evolution: Advancing as a Writer

It’s been a long time since I’ve updated this website (not my best move if this is meant to promote me!) but, to be honest, life got in the way. I won’t be ashamed of that, I’ve achieved too much on the ground. In this last year I’ve grown from Editor’s Assistant at beautiful.bizarre to […]


Delving into Folklore and Dreams with My Pet Skeleton

When an artist genuinely shows their thanks for an article you’ve written on them, it gives that teeny tiny buzz that you can’t get from anywhere else. I’ve been talking to Vincent Marcone – a.k.a. My Pet Skeleton – for weeks as we worked on this article bit by bit. Vincent is an interesting man; […]


Book Review: Into the Darkest Corner (Thriller)

This book is a certainly different from the usual that I’ve reviewed; For my own pleasure (and why not?) I like to talk about books that have really hit a nerve within me for one reason or another – a book that has touched my soul, and in general I find it hard to come […]


Top 10 sci-fi and fantasy artists – World of Superheroes

I’ve recently joined the World of Superheroes writers team (YES!). I love books, comics, graphic novels, films and t.v. series, so I’m really excited at this latest opportunity – it’s just a matter of fitting them all into a hectic lifestyle of two time-fulfilling jobs! As usual, I really aim to make it work. How […]


Bastien Lecouffe Deharme: an interview with the master of Sci-fi and Retrocity

This interview with Bastien Lecouffe Deharme took some time – I shouldn’t have been surprised to discover that he was run off his feet with commissions to finish off in between getting back to me! I don’t even remember how I originally discovered Bastien Lecouffe’s artwork but it really is up there in my top 10, […]


Book review: Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

Sometimes I love it when the publication of a book goes right under my radar until a couple of years later. Why? Because, after becoming hooked and fully falling into a new world, I don’t have to wait for the sequel. It may seem like a funny place to start a book review but don’t […]


Fan of Horror? Love Joshua Hoffine

After my last article on Kirsty Mitchell and her world of delightful escapism, I was itching for something a little more…gritty. On my travels, I came across Joshua Hoffine. I admit, I wasn’t sure what to make of him at first; My taste in horror has always lay in the truly dark. I grew up […]


Kirsty Mitchell: Wonderland

I’ve not updated this website for some time now due to other priorities, so next in line I wanted to tell you about my article for Beautiful Bizarre on the amazing photographer Kirsty Mitchell. This woman is something else. Not only is she a photographer with an electrifying imagination, but she works tirelessly to create […]

3 Wishes Faery Fest 2014: A Festival like no other

Over the Summer Solstice this year, Mount Edgecumbe House and Country Park in Cornwall saw hundreds of people gather together in the most friendly and magical festival I have ever been to; 3 Wishes Faery Fest 2014! Now I’ve been to a collection of festivals in the UK including heavy metal Bloodstock and the Big Green […]


How to be More ‘Green’ and Do Your Bit for the Planet

On April 22nd it was Earthday, a day focused on what we can do to promote a better natural earth. It’s a wonderful, positive idea, but such a shame that we need a special day for many to do anything significant to help look after the Earth. Rather than just taking part in the one off day, let’s try to […]
