Recent updates-

No reviews so far for Grief, or The Observer (short stories.) If someone could drop in on those ones that would be really cool (and I'll return the favour.) I'm sending some of my short stories and poems into mags, and if they get accepted/bought by the mag I may feel obliged to take them down from here. Wish me luck!

About me...

I am a strange cookie. I live with my boyfriend in the fortress of comfort and muffins. I try to avoid things that will harm me like exercise, sunlight and meeting new people. I don't drive a car but would prefer a motor cycle anyway, one with blades along the sides just in case I run into an action fight scene. I eat way too much and hate going to the gym. A few of my favourite authors are Chuck Palahniuk, Steven King, Laurell K Hamilton, Thomas Harris, Lisa Gardner, Scott F.Fitzgerald and Truman Capote. I love anything sick or freaky, but I like stuff that lingers after you've watched/read it in the best creepy kind of way. A little higher up than the torture porn stuff. Favourite movies are Fight Club, Taking Lives, Seven, The Clockwork Orange, Silence of the Lambs/Hannibal/Red Dragon... Also like original horror movies like the Ring 0. I like a good film from any genre but I spend a lot of time watching horror or comedy, as I enjoy laughing or screaming. I'm also a sucker for those old 90's thrillers like Speed. Well done thrillers, book or movies, are a way for me to experience some excitement in my introverted little life. I have a small circle of friends, it's more like a two some I suppose, and to be honest they're mostly imaginary. I want to write novels for a living but accept that I may need to join the grind of social servitude to survive and practice writing in a secritive fashion until I have become immensely rich and famous.

Oldish updates

-I'm bringing my old stuff from Quizilla here. Arriving now:

Sold at a Vampire Flea Market

A story about a sixteen year old girl who falls for a hundred year old vampire named Nick.

I'm taking some of my stuff from my old site and putting here (the net is a good ultimate back up.)

Stories...

Complete.

The Way Your Lips Taste (going to edit this eventually.)

Maddy is sweet and innocent, Jason is sweet and... a sociopath. They form a strange relationship. Also I may revise this as I'm aware there are few inconsistencies in the overall story due to plot changes etc. Still this one was pretty popular too.

48

I really enjoyed writing this. A story about a psychopath serial killer who kidnaps a fourteen year old girl, and the older sister who is stupid enough to go in after her. It's a twisted thriller/romance. This has gotten over 2,700 hits (thanks again to my awesome fans.) It's my top story so far.

Unfinished

The Camp

This story centres around 18 year old Chelsea-Ray. She's been sent to an 'emotional rehabilitation' camp to get her anger under control, as a last ditch alternative to prison after committing assault. This one's died unfortunately.

My poems

Are what I think about stuff, which often involves me being pissed off.

So don't be afraid to talk to me or ask me to review your stuff, just say hey.

Charlie reviews
“We’re very sorry,” from the doctor, finally. “He’s gone.” He’s gone? She reeled. How could that be it? Two sentences and a tissue. A discharge form in the doctor’s gloved hand. There had to be more than this. A mother loses her son.
