Beneath heaven is Hell… 
Beneath Hell is Furnace!

My name is Alex and I'm not a killer. They framed me for murder, condemned me to life in Furnace with its punishments and pain.

I've got to get out of here.
If I don't, it could be me the wheezers come for.
Me who's dragged screaming from my cell.
Me who's brought back scarred, twisted and hungry for blood.

I have to escape. Before they turn me into a monster.

Devil's Engine Poster Final small.jpg

When a sixteen-year-old troublemaker named Marlow Green is trapped in a surreal firefight against nightmarish creatures in the middle of his New York City neighborhood, he unwittingly finds himself amid a squad of secret soldiers dedicated to battling the legions of the devil himself. Powering this army of young misfits is an ancient machine from the darkest parts of history. Known as the devil's engine, it can make any wish come true-as long as you are willing to put your life on the line. Promised powers beyond belief, and facing monstrous apparitions straight out of the netherworld, Marlow must decide if he's going to submit to a demonic deal with the infernal machine that will enable him to join the crusade-if it doesn't kill him first.

From the author of the Escape from Furnace series, The Devil's Engine: Hellraisers is the opening salvo in an explosive new horror trilogy about an ordinary American kid caught up in an invisible war against the very worst enemy imaginable.

Prompted by a request on Facebook, here is a terrifying, disgusting novel about chickens...

I'm writing this on a whim, and taking guidance from Facebook, so if you have any suggestions, let me know! :-)

The plot so far...

AJ and Anna are two classmates on an end of term field trip that should be fun: abseiling, archery, swimming, and maybe a bit of midnight partying by the lake. But the campsite lies next to one of the county's largest chicken plants, and it isn't just the overwhelming stench of bird manure that is causing problems. Something weird is going on behind the metal fences, there have been strange sightings in the woods, and when the bodies start piling up, AJ and Anna realise they've stumbled into a real clucking nightmare...

A few years back I was walking through the park with a heavy cold, swallowing massive mouthfuls of phlegm (as you do). It was really gross, and I suddenly found myself thinking about an awful scenario where the only food left in the world was snot. Of course I decided to write a story about it. So here, in all its disgusting glory, is SNOT. Just a warning, it's pretty gross. I mean, so gross that it's the only story of mine my sister has never been able to read, and she's a hardcore horror fan. :-)


Since the great famine, it's the only thing on the menu. Packed with everything you need to survive, snot is the ultimate food source. Unless you can produce your own then you're forced to suck up somebody else's, or dine on cow snot from the canteen. Pete is a drythroat, unable to make his own meals, but when some of the best snotters in his school start disappearing, he realises that he has bigger problems to deal with. Did I warn you it was gross?
