It was extremely fortunate that Ryan and Kas recognised the path they’d walked along a few days earlier. An orienteering sign with a gnarled tree trunk stump nearby was the giveaway. From that point they knew the town was only an hour’s walk away or so. The number of lurchers had reduced greatly since Ryan’s … Continue reading ASAS: Survival of the Fittest–Chapter Eight
The flames danced with spirit as the fire grew in size and ferocity. It quickly engulfed the adjacent side of the cabin from which Ryan and Kas stood, who were waiting patiently for their moment to run. They could hear the excitable sounds of the lurchers as they were drawn towards the blaze in number. … Continue reading ASAS: Survival of the Fittest–Chapter Seven
Ryan held his breath. The sound of shuffling feet and the occasional throaty growl could still be heard. At least they weren’t hammering on the side of the shack anymore. He looked across the room towards the shivering Kas whose breathing was becoming increasingly laboured. That was all he needed, to soon be sharing the … Continue reading ASAS: Survival of the Fittest–Chapter Five
The truck rumbled into another town midmorning the next day. It was just as well because they were practically running on fumes. The town was big enough to assume there’d be a petrol station and places in which to find food. The only problem was that there were lurchers—a lot of them! Kas had run … Continue reading ASAS: Survival of the Fittest–Chapter One
Not one person sat in the truck could quite get a handle on how the situation at New Haven, a situation that had seemed so perfect, had gone awry so quickly. Less than a week ago it had been the ideal safe zone, a properly run and maintained community. Now it was about to fall, … Continue reading ASAS: Survival of the Fittest–Prologue
The city had grown to become a tiresome and irritating place for Parker. It was dirty. It stunk. It was crowded. There was very little in way of redeeming features. It was a hellish place to live and work. Even grocery shopping was a nightmare task. That was why he decided to pack up his … Continue reading Blood Debt (Flash Fiction)

It’s about time, as a writer, that I reviewed the writings of another. I start with one of my favourite novelists and one of the biggest names in literature. Nobody can argue with the success of Dan Brown. He’s achieved what most of us authors could only dream to achieve. Not only does he leave … Continue reading Review of Dan Brown’s Inferno
First of all, apologies for my break in posting lately. I've been busy combining playing Assassin's Creed 2 on PS4 and Football Manager on my laptop. It's not easy to do both at the same time but I've been managing it. Oh, I've also been working on editing A Survivor's Apocalypse Story to release as … Continue reading A Survivor’s Apocalypse Story now available as an eBook!
Jay believed Ryan. It turned out he’d been suspicious of Mel’s motives all along but had been reluctant to speak out in case it came back on him. “Pretty sweet that you’re gettin’ sex out of the whole thing. I thought you were keen on Georgina though? Isn’t that the reason for you doin’ all … Continue reading ASAS: New Black Plague–Chapter 11
