Welcome all!  

I am a Wattpad Featured (and recently Radish invited) writer of contemporary horror and suspense. I write stories that I would want to read, usually subjecting characters to horrific and unpredictable circumstances. I like to shock and surprise throughout my tales. I like to juxtapose beauty with terror. I like my stories to horrify but my writing to entice.

I was born and lived most of my life in Northern Ireland but now I live in SE Minnesota, USA with a Polish wife, American Akita and increasingly Americanized daughter.

You may write to me at georgeholmauthor@gmail.com or connect with me on Twitter or Instagram where I go by the moniker @ghauthor.
