I compiled all of my spooky stories into one big list of terrifying tales, enjoy!
From monsters and aliens to witches and ghouls, we’ve got creepy ghost tales, demonic forays, psychological thrillers, and the terror of bleak dystopia. Some of these stories face the horror with an air of wit, others with woe, choose wisely (I have included descriptions, do not fear . . . if you can help it).
Have a browse and try not to acknowledge the things you catch out of the corner of your eye while reading . . . they don’t like that very much.

BONUS ROUND! – My WHIM-DARK Serials
These are serialised stories from my Whim-Dark Universe, they’re whimsical, they’re dark, and involve necromancy, demons and a whole manner of SPOOKINESS along with a fun ‘band of misfits’ plot and a bit of will they?/won’t they? romance.
These two serials share the same universe but it isn’t required that you read them in order to understand what’s going on.
Can a well meaning Necromancer and his rat tag band of misfits really stop the War of the Damned?
A group of heroes are out to fell a rampaging dragon, but on their way they encounter a strange woman who is running from a demonic predator.
