THE SHADOW FABRIC - a supernatural horror novel

Leo remembers little of his past. Desperate for a new life, he snatches up the first job to come along. On his second day he witnesses a murder, and the Shadow Fabric – a malevolent force that controls the darkness – takes the body and vanishes with it.

Determined to get answers, Leo has no idea where to turn. Revelations come in the most unlikely places, and secrets of witchcraft and ancient artefacts unfold. In particular, a device used in the 17th century to extract evil from witches proves key to his discoveries. With these truths long hidden from humankind, his memory unravels. Not only haunted by the past, a sinister presence within the darkness threatens Leo’s existence and he soon doubts everything and everyone...including himself.

The relentless and destructive power of the Shadow Fabric compels Leo to fight not only this growing darkness, but also the entity beneath the Fabric’s surface. While these supernatural horrors rage and his world crumbles, Leo must confront his past before he can embrace his future. But the future may not exist.

SINISTER STITCHES - a collection of short horror stories

Featured stories include:

NEXT ON THE LIST - “I hate changes.”
MIDNIGHT CLAY - ...a mess of black and crimson.
A DEMON’S THREAD - ...campfire stories...
ON THE VINE - Barbs sliced his forearms and the torch flew from his hand.
THE ARTIST AND THE CRONE - Part-flesh, part-shadow, the foul garment writhed on the ground.
DUE SOUTH - He really should’ve driven like most people.
RED, WHITE AND BLACK - ...filth glistened, protruding through torn flesh and broken bone...
INTENSIVE SCARE - It churned like liquid, bubbled, and swept up and into my eyes.
MEETING MUM - Beneath the gleaming skin, those traceries of veins wriggled like a hundred worms.
SEEING IS BELIEVING - When he removed those glasses, I saw his bloodshot eyes.
DISTURBED - The night pressed down. His hands clawed his head, tugged at his hat. “No!”
WELCOME HOME - She’d vanished last night . . . or was it last week?

Each story binds the Shadow Fabric mythos tighter, revealing that everything around us is entwined with a deep-rooted darkness. And sometimes that darkness — the fabric — tears.


Two stories that prove no matter where you are in the world, the darkness will find you...
