Hi, I'm Evelyn and I like to experiment in different genres. 

I'm a twice-Featured, 2016 Watty winner with works going top 20 so far in 3 genres. None of these should be taken as a seal of quality.

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.

Works include:

WHO PUT BELLA IN THE WYCH ELM? - Watty winning paranormal mystery about a young witch during WW2.

The WIDER SEAS series - zombie-pirate historical adventure comedy mash-up with Pratchett-inflected humour. This is my biggest project. Give it a bash. Don't take it seriously!

KING OF MIST - The slightly more challenging, hugely trippy literary mystery quiz.

DOWN 918 RABBIT HOLES - Non-fiction, short chapters covering the Jonestown Massacre and my attempts to write a story for all 918 people who died.

ELEOS HARRUMPHED - I suppose you could call fanfiction. A tongue in cheek sequel to Atlas Shrugged, set 30 years later and stretching those gapping plot holes to their logical conclusion.

918 - Some of my Jonestown short stories.

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

SHORTS AND ALL - Ephemera, short stories, contest entries. Including ESCAPE FROM THE LABYRINTH, a sequel to the 80's film, TIBBLES, a story written from the perspective of the Stephen's Island Wren (yes, really), and BLOOP, a story for the #bodyonthebeach contest, among others.

All my work is Ad Free. Enjoy. Don't enjoy. Whatever.

Don't ask me to read and comment on your story. You don't want that. Trust me.
