What is your latest release and what genre is it?
BEDBUGS (Can you see them?) is a Sci-Fi style horror novel.
Quick description of it.
A small spacecraft crashed in the town of Lemonsville in 1977, leaving one night of brutal murders. Now, 73 years later the same type of killings is happening again.
Something unique about it.
It’s unique because it’s aimed at my idea of the old Bedbugs saying – NIGHT, NIGHT, SLEEP TIGHT & DON’T LET THE BEDBUGS BITE – When I was a child that saying scared me and I thought that bedbugs were coming in the night to bite me. My story isn’t about real bedbugs that bite you in bed, mine are an alien breed that eat you…

Your short Bio.
I was born in 1969, grew up in Warwickshire, UK, near to where William Shakespeare & George Eliot lived. I wrote short stories as a child for younger children to read, and large essays as a teenager, but I had no idea at this time that I wanted to be a writer. My first experience at adult writing was when I was 24. I started a story aimed at rats that attacked people. That story was never finished, but I have now gone back to it and have re-written it to be released early 2014. My first full novel happened in early 2000. That’s when I wrote my zombie style, action novel titled – CliftonFalls, but it’s had a makeover since then. It was re-released in September 2012, with my second novel – Bedbugs (Can you see them?) being released in October 2012. I am now working with an American screenwriter who wrote the script for Bedbugs, which is now in the hands of a movie studio in the UK. He also wrote the script for a zombie western idea I came up with. That’s now being passed around, so I’m hoping for big things with that. I’m also working with a narrator to turn Bedbugs into an audio novel to go with the release of CliftonFalls, which came out in the summer of 2013. 2014 will see the release of The S.T.A.R.S Project – (Science testing aimed at rats survival), my novel about 100 Lab rats that escape to cause havoc in a small, farming town, and hopefully will see progress of the movie version of Bedbugs, with me also working on other stories while also Co-writing scripts with my screenwriter.
