The Outer Darkness – From Script to Scream – Episode 1

The first episode of our exclusive insight into the making of The Outer Darkness is now live at the Kessler University website. The ‘Script to Scream’ series will show the development of our new short horror film throughout the whole film-making process.

This first slice focuses on pre-production – and includes some advice from my good self on writing for the short horror film.

A Selection of Short Horror Fiction… Now as PDF’s!

I’ve added my short horror stories ‘Gulls’, ‘The Jade Junk’ and ‘The Bay of Goats’ to the blog for your reading pleasure. They’re now available as PDF files so you can view and download them for reading on iPads, Kindles and whatever new technology you have kicking around the place.

Simply click on the ‘Fiction’ link at the top of the page or go here.

In the following weeks I’ll be adding much more content to the site including the scripts for Bloody Cuts episodes I’ve written and co-written as well as a selection of comic book scripts, prose pieces and other slices of writing from the archives.

Please check them out, all comments and views are gratefully received!


I really need to update this blog more, but this thing called writing gets in the way.

Just finished the script for what should be Bloody Cuts episode 6 and have done the 1st draft of what may well be another episode. Very excited about both!

This is in addition to another project I’m working which is also a very cool thing. And a lot of work doing promotion and PR for Bloody Cuts and our films.

The new Bloody Cuts episode ‘Suckablood’ films this weekend and I’ll be on location at Middleton Towers to assist the ‘Making Of’ with Digital Producer Anthony Melton which should be the usual caffeine fuelled two days of fun and mayhem.
