My Story from Twisted50 vol 1: The Beholder

Favourite quote: ‘We’ve gone on holiday by mistake. We’re in this cottage here. Are you the farmer?’ -Withnail and I

I’m a fiction writer between periods of work as a factual television producer and director, and continuous work as a mum of three. All of these jobs can be quite tricky, but very rewarding when/if I get them right. I’ve published short fiction and poetry, and written and directed my own short films, which have been shortlisted for awards. Long Gone Gindi is one of my first attempts at sci-fi. I’m a proud holder of a second place award for Best Story in Twisted 50 Vol 1 for The Beholder, and I’m trying to write a novel – again. Two previous attempts languish in the bottom drawer so I think I am, officially, my own worst critic.

Success lies at the crossroads between experience and opportunity

If success lies at the crossroads between experience and opportunity, then the simple act of creative collaboration is by far the best strategy to increase your experience and opportunities.

The Beholder: How We’re All Watched… by Stephanie Wessell

For me, truly horrifying tales involve a hidden evil within normal, everyday life. Imagine: there’s an unsettling spirit entity watching you read this RIGHT NOW. Can’t you feel it, observing you? It’s right here, just at your shoulder, willing you to turn around… look. Look now. LOOK! Nothing there? It doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist…
