The Penny Dreadful

Very pleased to announce that I have a short horror piece, ‘Instructions,’ in Issue 7 of the Penny Dreadful! Available to purchase here for some kind of… (squints)… strange, furriner money, not like the good maple syrup and nanaimo bar exchange system we have in Canada.


I’m really proud of this piece, probably unjustifiably (because writerly doubt?) – I wrote it very quickly, it’s much shorter than my usual short stories, and yet when I was done, I thought for the first time, “Yes, this is a perfect length.”


Also, it’s in an Irish mag! That’s a career first.
