Out now: Perfect Little Monsters and Other Stories!

Perfect Little Monsters and Other StoriesPerfect Little Monsters and Other Stories, my first short story collection, is out now from Amazon! The book collects together five brand new stories, as well as a revised version of The Scream.

The five new stories begin with the title story, Perfect Little Monsters, in which a strange young girl finally believes she has been given a new sister. Things don’t quite work out that way, however, and soon the pigs in the yard are given a feast. This is followed by I Hate You, a story about a girl who spends her life tormenting strangers online, and who then receives a taste of her own medicine.

Next is Meat, about a woman who starts to worry that her neighbors are a little strange. Then again, people in glass houses…

Fifty Fifty is set in a prison, where the inmates are being used as part of a macabre experiment. Unfortunately for the prison’s dictatorial governor, his plans are about to be interrupted. Then there’s Stay Up Late, in which a man stays up after his wife and daughter have gone to bed. As he opens a bottle of wine, he hears a knock on the door…

I’m already planning a second book of short stories, with similar themes. I should probably mention that these stories are quite graphic and nasty, and they also feature strong language, albeit only in context. And one of them is already getting a sequel in the next collection!
