When nightmares begin to haunt his sleeping and waking life Will is unsure whether he is suffering from the illness that killed his father or being led by unseen forces to uncover a city-wide conspiracy. As his paranoia heightens he must ask himself - is he willing to lose himself to find the truth?

I have my youth to blame. I was arrogant back then, sitting on the clockmaker's shoulder, whispering in his ear. I loved every motion. The rotating of the radial arms, the gnashing and clawing of metallic teeth, the sway of the pin-thin pendulum. Each slow turn was a breath, each fast swing a heartbeat...    Short story published by Pure Slush

Born in South Africa. Made in Sussex. After an uneventful upbringing I've found myself in London trying to make it in the unglamorous world of Television. Writing has always been a part of my life but discipline and distraction are an issue. My favourite authors are Stephen King, Neil Gaiman and Douglas Adams, although I don't pretend to possess any of their wit, genius or heart. When not pretending to be an author or TV hotshot, I like country walks, visiting the zoo and sitting in pubs.
