My latest book is called ‘Dark County’ it is a collection of short horror stories all set in the countryside, or as I prefer to call them ‘Ten Tales of Rural terror’. The inspiration for this book was two fold, the fact that it is a collection of short stories came from the fact that I had just finished and published my first novel and wanted to do something different, doing a short story collection gave me the opportunity to write stories of many kinds and styles.
