Tue, 06 November 2012 Hallowe’en Sessions Round-up

I’m back from my London sojourn, and it ended up being a busy period. I attended the opening and closing nights of The Hallowe’en Sessions, but I also turned up at the theatre every evening to say hello to the people who supported the play. It was fantastic that so many friends and colleagues of [...]

Sun, 28 October 2012 Halloween in London

I’m off to London today, and tomorrow I’ll be attending the première performance of The Hallowe’en Sessions in the Leicester Square Theatre.
It’s a rather surreal experience to type those words.
The effect of writing is often only felt many months (or years) after you have gestated and laboured over an idea. Due to the passage of [...]

Sun, 02 September 2012 Hallowe’en Sessions update

I’m back from FrightFest in London, my annual pilgrimage to sample the best (and sometimes, the worst) of horror cinema being made in the world today.
While there I was lucky to meet up with most of my co-conspirators for The Hallowe’en Sessions: writers Kim Newman, Paul McAuley, Anne Billson, writer/director Sean Hogan, and producer Josh [...]

Fri, 13 July 2012 The Hallowe’en Sessions

I’m delighted to announce that I’ve written part of an anthology play called The Hallowe’en Sessions, which will have a run in the Leicester Square Theatre, London, from 29 October – 3 November, 2012.

Here’s the blurb:
A group of mental patients gather for a therapy session to each recount the terrifying events that caused them to [...]

Mon, 16 May 2011 dynamic trio

I utterly failed to post images last week, as I promised, so I’m endeavouring to do better this week.
This dynamic trio is Wonder Woman, Catwoman and Hawk Girl, and was a small splurge on my part while I was in Dublin last week. I was smitten with the expression on Hawk Girl’s face in particular. [...]

Sat, 06 November 2010 flashback to Greece

Yesterday’s post with its emphasis on sunshine reminded me that this time last year I was in Greece as part of the first World Conference of Screenwriters. I was running the conference blog and social media, and it was a wonderful, if exhausting, few days in Athens.
The above picture is of the Parthenon at dusk [...]

Wed, 22 September 2010 Autumn

I spotted this fine fellow on my way into the woods to walk my dog this morning. It’s a good example of Coprinus comatus, also known as the shaggy ink cap or the lawyer’s wig, among others. I usually refer to it as the shaggy ink cap (or, as I misspoke this morning upon my [...]

Thu, 15 April 2010 sun in the sky you know how I feel

I’ve been getting a constant stream of birthday greetings from people via Facebook and Twitter today, and it’s lovely. Thank you all! People might grumble about social media, but it has its good uses too.
I’m just about recovered from my two-week trip with back-to-back convention in the UK. World Horror Convention was probably the highlight [...]

Sat, 27 February 2010 dear Alexandra

This blog post began as a reply to a comment made by horror writer and screenwriter, Alexandra Sokoloff, on my last blog entry, but got too long. It’s probably best if you read that first before continuing with this entry.
I’ll wait.
Back? Great. Here’s what my couple of lines morphed into:
Dear Alexandra,
Thank you for your [...]
