Favourite Authors: Definitely Richard Laymon, his work inspired me to write professionally. I also love Bill Bryson.
I really enjoy autobiographies and factual books on anything from The Supernatural to Myths and Legends. I must also confess to being an English Literature junkie – I adore classical English Poetry from the likes of Byron, Keats, Wilde and Shelley and I have devoured everything by Jane Austen & Daphne Du Maurier.
Favourite Music: I love music, bands like HIM inspire me to write. I also love, The Tea Party, The White Stripes, Placebo, The Cure, Nick Cave, David Bowie, Beethoven, The Angels .. really there are too many to mention.

Favourite Movies: I can’t really narrow it down to a few, but let’s just say that though horror is my life, there are actually no horror movies in my top five movies of all time. A few of my all time favourite horror movies are: The Exorcist, Dawn of The Dead, Shaun of The Dead, Blood Sucking Freaks. I am also a huge fan of anything by Unearthed Films.
