Novella “Torment” to be re-released by Lycan Valley Press

Some further good news is that Canadian press, Lycan Valley Press will be re-publishing a new illustrated edition of my first novella, Torment this year!


Originally published in 2011, Torment is a creepy supernatural tale, blending together the exorcism and haunted house sub-genres.

Here’s the blurb:

Jessica Newman’s tragic childhood has come back to haunt her. Her father, a Catholic deacon she hasn’t seen since he was found not guilty of her mother’s death during an exorcism ritual, has turned up dead in Scotland, with a wound to the head. Forced to take her family to Scotland and deal with her father’s estate a derelict mansion in the Grampian Ranges, Jessica begins to question her mother’s death and what role her father played in it. The house and its dark basement could provide more answers than she bargained for.

I’m really excited to see this story more widely read, and LVP seem really dedicated to make the paperback edition something special.  Here’s LVP’s announcement

LVP also recently accepted my short story, “Become Him”, to appear in their debut anthology, Morbid Metamorphosis.

More details on Torment and the anthology as they come to hand.
