Today is release day for my short story collection, Diabolical Dreamscapes. This isn’t my first book: I already have four novels and two poetry collections currently in print. This isn’t the first time these short stories have appeared in print, as most were first published by literary magazines and anthologies in the UK, US and elsewhere worldwide. But this is a celebration nonetheless, as this is the first time I have published twenty-one of them all in one themed collection!
Want to listen to a long-ish (13 minutes) reading of the first page of a selection from the book? Go on then, why not grab a cuppa, and a biccy, and put your feet up while you listen:

Leilanie Stewart is an author and poet from Belfast, Northern Ireland. She has written four novels, including award-winning ghost horror, The Blue Man, as well as three poetry collections. Her writing confronts the nature of self; her novels feature main characters on a dark psychological journey who have a crisis of identity and create a new sense of being. She began writing for publication while working as an English teacher in Japan, a career pathway that has influenced themes in her writing. Her former career as an Archaeologist has also inspired her writing and she has incorporated elements of archaeology and mythology into both her fiction and poetry.
In addition to promoting her own work, Leilanie runs Bindweed Magazine, a creative writing literary journal with her writer husband, Joseph Robert. Aside from publishing pursuits, Leilanie enjoys spending time with her husband and their lively literary lad, a voracious reader of sea monster books.
