Based in the (very) far north of Scotland I write horror and speculative fiction at the top of the map. I enjoy reading a wide variety of work with a particular soft spot for William Gibson, Neil Gaiman and Pablo Neruda. I plan to be posting speculative or horror stories every fortnight, with occasional literary stories sprinkled in. My interests outside of writing are music, walking by the sea and river, dark comedy and pugs.

I was going on my own through forest of Puszcza Knyszynska (Poland) and the forest I walked many times earlier, didn’t resemble the one I used to know. It was covered in heavy fog and covered with snow. I was so deeply involved in admiring and catching the right frames, that I suddenly realized, I don’t know, where I am. This is the magic of forest. :)
