"We All Scream for Ice Cream" (Published 17th May 2019)

A short story to give you brain-freeze!

From indie horror author Lou Yardley comes a new deliciously weird story that can be devoured in sitting.

Summer's here and the usually quiet and studious Katelyn is letting her rebellious steak out. At eleven-years-old and with the world's coolest bike, there's no stopping her. Especially now that she's got new friends...

But a day at the park takes a bizarre and horrific turn when an ice cream van shows up. All at once, Katelyn learns about friendship, fitting in and the lengths she will go to survive.

"We All Scream for Ice Cream" combines monsters, gore and dessert in one tasty little package.


"The Forest: A Short Story - Parts One & Two" (Published 3rd November 2018)

If you go down to the woods today, you’re in for a big surprise.

Georgia is spending a summer’s afternoon looking after her younger brother, Oliver. At twelve-years-old, she believes that she is an adult. Or, almost an adult at the very least. But, despite her desire to grow up, Oliver convinces her to play their favourite game. A game called the Dragon Game.

The game takes a bizarre twist when something calls them from the forest that backs onto their garden. Daring each other, the siblings enter forest only to find that it’s not a normal forest at all. This is a place where dreams and nightmares are made. A place they may never escape…

 


"When The Sun Sets" (Published 13th July 2018)

What would you do if the sun set... Forever?

Lexi finds herself a prisoner in her own home after the sun sets and refuses to rise again. At first, it was an inconvenience; now it's downright dangerous. In the four weeks since the darkness descended, humanity has all but given up. Violent crime has become part of everyday life and everyone is a potential killer. No-one can be trusted.

But, that's not all Lexi has to worry about. The darkness has brought something with it.

Something deadly...

This tale of the supernatural at the most wonderful time of the year is best enjoyed on Christmas Eve, with a mug of hot chocolate in front of a log fire.
