Read me, Seymour! Read me now!

So, you attended WorldCon and heard about the Sir Julius Vogel Awards? Or perhaps you saw some tweets about the massive SFF scene in New Zealand? Maybe you just want to find something new to read, but you’re a little bit low on funds? I’ve collected a handy guide to how and where you can read my work — and some stories are completely free!


Dark Winds Over Wellington: Chilling Tales of the Weird & the Strange
(Wild Wood Books, 2019)

The ebook of my debut short story collection, Dark Winds Over Wellington, which was shortlisted for a Sir Julius Vogel Award this year, is only $2.99 USD on Smashwords and Amazon.

In this collection, I invite you to the Coolest Little Capital, where the wild winds will drive you to madness, the Beehive lives up to its name, and the coffee isn’t all that it seems. 

Inspired by Wellington legends and folklore, these thirteen original short stories will drag you on a chilling journey through the eerie, the weird and the strange. 

All the Laird’s Men
(Wild Wood Books, 2020)

My brand new novelette All the Laird’s Men is currently only $0.99 USD, also on Amazon and Smashwords.

Monsters, military and mayhem. A ragtag trio of Scottish soldiers meet their match at Loch Ness when they’re sent on what might end up being their last ever mission.

Over on Curious Fictions there are a number of my short stories available to read online for free. Some of these stories have been previously published in charity anthologies by Things In The Well, plus the antipodean Horror and Speculative Fiction magazines: Midnight Echo and Breach.

For more, free short stories, I have collected a variety of tales right here on my website.

RISE: A Collection of Poems
(Wild Wood Books, 2019)

If you fancy some poetry, RISE: a Collection of Poems is “Reader Sets Price” on Smashwords. This means you can choose to pay as much or as little as you want, or even download it for free. This is a collection of personal verse which explores motherhood, family, old friends, spiritual journeys and the sea.

And if it’s interviews, articles and essays you’re after, you can read all of them here, including my nonfiction essay “Who is Ellen Ripley?” which featured as the lead article in The Digital Dead magazine #16.
