The Academy boasted many fine laboratories, practice suites and classrooms, but if Jyx had to choose his favourite place, then it was surely the library. For one thing, it was the only room in the ...

Is it worth buying?
A little while ago I bought a host of new make up since I was staying at someone's house and didn't have any make up with me. I was trying to keep costs down, so I picked up the Natural Glow 2 Shad...

The beauty of photography like this is it allows for a form of time travel.

I finally decided to blog about the passing of one of my favourite actors.
Last week, cinema lost a figure who could legitimately lay claim to the title of 'legend'. Sir Christopher Lee was one of my favourite actors and I wasn't originally going to blog about his passing...

What are the "Skulls" for?
I stumbled across the window full of skulls quite by accident. Indeed, one should never seek out such a window with the explicit purpose of doing so. I discovered them whilst walking through the un...

It's always difficult to know what to blog about, but if you make any kind of art, this should help.
One of the biggest questions I get is about creating strong blog posts about your art – Strong blog posts are...

Why it's not always a bad thing to fail.
In my Creativity series, I've talked about why having too many ideas can be as bad as having too few, and the value of creative rule systems. Today I want to talk about something that is currently ...

This is certainly an interesting (and hi tech) way to look at story setting!
Write realistic story settings from draft one with these 3 setting design tools for writers. For a story so real, your readers will feel like they lived it.

Writer. Crafter. Film Academic. Evil Genius.
Introduction
Up here in the frozen north of England, I write Gothic and horror fiction, I knit and crochet, I analyse horror films, I make jewellery, and I take photos.

I write in several genres, but primarily Westerns and horror with a Gothic bent. I have two e-books available for 99c/70p, while my pulp Western, The Guns of Retribution, was released in September 2011. My latest release is a horror/fantasy novella called The Necromancer's Apprentice. It has a mummy horde in it.
