With a skilful blend of horror and thriller fiction, he explores the shaded territories of evil, evoking a sense of brooding menace and rising tension. He relentlessly draws the reader through the story’s ultimate revelation – one that will stay to chill the mind long after the book has been laid aside. His bestsellers, THE MAGIC COTTAGE, HAUNTED, SEPULCHRE and CREED, have enhanced his reputation as a writer of depth and originality. His novels such as THE FOG, THE DARK and THE SURVIVOR are already hailed as classics of the genre. (Details taken from several book covers)
