Blurring the Line is seeking to blur the line between what is fiction and what is non-fiction.

We want horror stories, tales that are serious and frightening, hard-hitting and imaginative. We want monsters; vampires and zombies and werewolves and the mummy and creatures from the Black Lagoon and giant killer plants and mutated ants and demons and devils and Mothmen and everything else you can think of or that hasn’t been thought of yet. But we also want your serial killers and demented and depraved humanity. We want it all. Push your imagination and take us into the far reaches of your darkness, without letting go of reality. Make us believe.

CURRENTLY WORKING ON:

New Novel: Motel of Blades is underway. This will be a demented joyride into the depths of insanity and depravity…

The Midnight Tree series – update:

The first three books are now complete and on their way to my editor.

How far would one man go to get to the truth? And how far would those he has wronged go to extract their terrible revenge?

The titles in this series thus far are:
Finding Safe Ground (Book I)
The Dying Trees (Book II)
A Plague of Locusts (Book III)

THINGS TO SEE AND DO AT MARTY’S WORLD:

There’s Free Fiction to whet your appetite (and more due to be added). Plus an article on ghost hunting, written after an adventure at Muncaster Castle in the UK.

You could visit Parkton, where odd things happen more often than they should (pack a lunch, cos a day trip could turn into weeks)…

Or you can check out my plan of attack for world domination. As a mad scientist, ruling the world goes with the job description.

There’s a page dedicated to the Bram Stoker nominated and Australian Shadows award-winning Macabre, one on all the Latest Horror News, and another on Writer’s Resources.

There are more attractions on their way as the local government has just agreed to invest into improving the infrastructure to support the budding tourist attractions.. I even hear there is going to be a page on Palynology, so when the next person says ‘huh?’ when I explain what my day job entails, I can point them here…


The scotch-addled mind of a deviant writer and mad scientist...
