PAUL HISCOCK

 

Paul is an author of crime, fantasy and science fiction tales. His short stories have appeared in several anthologies and include a seventeenth century whodunnit, a science fiction western and a number of Sherlock Holmes pastiches.

 

Paul lives with his family in Kent (England) and spends his days engaged in the far more challenging task of taking care of his two children. He mainly does his writing in coffee shops with members of the local NaNoWriMo group or in the middle of the night when his family has gone to sleep. Consequently, his stories tend to be fuelled by large amounts of black coffee. His story, ‘Raindrops', appears in Under the Weather

PAUL B. MORRIS

 

Paul B. Morris is a writer who hails from Walsall in the West Midlands, although he was created somewhere up North.


His stories lean towards dark fiction, horror and the strange, drawing focus from the dark reality of life. Paul’s story, Hail Mary, was featured in The Reverend Burdizzo’s Hymn Book. His debut horror novella, The Technician, is currently available to buy. After falling in love with the work of the great Shakespeare, Morris has also drawn inspiration from Lewis Carroll, Stephen King, Graham Masterton and most notably, Michael Marshall Smith, who is still his favourite author. In the realms of normality, Paul B Morris is happily married to an Angel, has four children who constantly get the better of him and wishes that he had the time to care for a pet bat. He owns two red t-shirts that don’t suit him.

DAVID J COURT

David Court was born and resides in Coventry, UK, with his patient wife Tara and three less patient cats. When not reading, drinking real ale, being immune to explosions, writing software for a living, or practicing his poorly developed telekinetic skills, he can be found writing fiction. David has had several short stories printed in various anthologies, including Fear's Accomplice and Hydrophobia. A short film of his debut comic work - Battlesuit - is watchable online.

David's wife once asked him if he'd write about how great she was. David replied that he would, because he specialized in short fiction. Despite that, they are still married.

ALYS DADDI

 

Alys Daddi germinated in the soils on the banks of Lake Garda, Italy. She grew into a bright, young sapling running around the streets of Riva Del Garda in the Province of Trento and was raised beneath the hot Italian sun on a diet of art books, music, country walks and good wholesome food. When she reached her early teens her parents moved to Suffolk, England. 

 

Alys pursued her love for art and English throughout her education.  She graduated Suffolk University and now spends most of her days painting in her house by the River Stour whilst she conjures up stories in her head to entertain the little people in her life. The little people in her life range from her own two children, Millicent and Firenzo and various nieces and nephews. She has three cats and a silly, old black dog, oh, and a much put upon husband who they couldn't cope without.

 

She does not do social media but wants people to know that they can contact her via Matthew Cash @Burdizzo_Books. The Little Exorcist is her first novel and she has already began working on her second.

DANI BROWN

Dani Brown is a writer, author and illustrator residing in Liverpool. She is most known as an author. Suitably labelled “The Queen of Filth”, Dani Brown’s style of dark and twisted writing and deeply disturbing stories has amassed a worrying sized cult following featuring horrifying tales such as 56 Seconds, Sparky the Spunky Robot and the hugely popular Ketamine Addicted Pandas. New for 2020, Becoming. When she isn’t writing or drawing, she enjoys knitting, belly dancing and relearning skills that have been lost to the years. She enjoys posting failures as much as successes across her social media accounts.

 

Dani’s stories have appeared in 12 Days: Anthology, Sparks: An Electric Anthology, 12 Days of Christmas 2017 and The Reverend Burdizzo’s Hymn Book. 

The original stories she penned for Hymn Book and Sparks were both rejected. The rejection letters can be read here and should be because they’re as hilarious as the stories, even if they contain less bodily fluids https://danibrownqueenoffilth.weebly.com/chester-and-lester.html Lester’s Electric Milking Machine can also be read there with author notes. The Original Bind Us Together was renamed Chester’s Cloudy Ice and can be found in Rejected for Content 6. Apart from spawning the Chester and Lester stories (which will one day be completed), the stories, rejection letters and Em Dehaney provided the final piece of inspiration behind Sparky the Spunky Robot.

 

The original toy robot is tattooed on Dani’s arm. She will one day add Sandy, the robot powered by evil semen to the design.
