Tick, Tick, Tick ...

It's Halloween! Two pumpkins and a jar of sweets are already sitting outside my front door, awaiting visitors. Though I'll admit to being a bit of a scaredy-cat (I can't watch a horror film), I do enjoy Halloween: flickering candles, a misty-cold night, that spooky feel in the air. It has an atmosphere writers should take advantage of...

So I was pleased to be asked to contribute to Wales Arts Review's Halloween Special this year. My short story, 'Tick', can be read in this very attractive PDF. Or, if you like someone else to do the scaring for you, you can listen to it being read on this excellent Podcast, at around 7 minutes 30 seconds. Happy Halloween!
