Midnight Echo – issue 13
My short story, One for the Money, has been published in Midnight Echo, issue 13, The Australian Horror Writers Magazine.

One for the Money
Although the charismatic Simon Jones makes macabre dares, he pays big money, so, desperate, Tessa agrees to stay overnight in The Grotesquerie, his collection of creepy animal statues.
Simon suspects he’s found another hapless victim for The Grotesquerie, but unbeknown to him, Tessa has hidden talents…

Warning: Although my story is a dark fantasy piece (quite dark – much darker than my usual fiction) Midnight Echo also contains horror content.
Be assured, I always write an upbeat ending, even if my story is dark.
