It’s 21 days until publication of my third novel, The Blue Man, which will be released on Friday 29th July 2022. Since the 3 week countdown is on, I thought I’d share with you a bit about why I wrote it.

I wanted to set a story in Northern Ireland: Belfast to be specific. All the books I’ve read that are set in Belfast are all about ‘The Troubles’. I hadn’t read a book set in East Belfast, which is where I grew up, nevermind a horror. Why are there no ghost horror novels set in Belfast? If there are, please feel free to let me know. I’d be happy to be corrected.

Anyway, that’s why I decided to write one; I wrote the book I wanted to read. If you like literary horror, ghost stories or psychological fiction, please feel free to pre-order a copy.

Or, listen as I read the back cover blurb and prologue on my YouTube channel:
