Hi, I'm Evelyn and I like to experiment in different genres. I try not to take myself too seriously and my writing is usually littered with smart-arse jokes, but I'd wager I'm neither as clever or as funny as I think I am. 

Not to blow my own trumpet or anything (I'm not that flexible, for starters) but my paranormal young adult horror WHO PUT BELLA IN THE WYCH ELM? won a WATTY. Which was nice.

But don't stop there. WIDER SEAS, the zombie-pirate historical adventure comedy mash-up with Pratchett-inflected humour is my biggest project. Give it a bash. Don't take it seriously!

In my bid for genre domination, there's also KING OF MIST, the recently featured, slightly more challenging, hugely trippy literary mystery quiz.

My brief foray into the dread-genre of romance is BURNT, a tale of music and enigmatic disappearances.

My two works exploring the Jonestown Massacre are the horror fiction shorts 918, and DOWN 918 RABBIT HOLES, a non-fiction account of the massacre and my efforts to write about it.

ELEOS HARRUMPHS, I suppose you could call fanfiction. A sequel to that tome to unrestrained capitalism Atlas Shrugged, set 30 years after and stretching those gapping plot holes to their logical conclusion.

SHORTS AND ALL is a collection of some short stories I've written, such as ESCAPE FROM THE LABYRINTH, a sequel to the 80's Bowie film. And TIBBLES, a story written from the perspective of the Stephen's Island Wren (yes, really).

All my work is Ad Free. Enjoy. Don't enjoy. Whatever. Just remember; the Zombie King is only sleeping.
