Welcome to Innsmouth
I didn’t get round to sharing this link on here when it was first recorded. Col and I had the ‘pleasure’ of discussing The Castle of Otranto with the incredible author Violet Fenn. I’ve used speech marks around the word ‘pleasure’ not because I don’t enjoy chatting with Violet (she’s awesome) but the choice of … Continue reading What Were they Thinking?
Just a reminder that Conversations with Dead Serial Killers is currently available for pre-order. The book is going to be released on Valentine’s Day and it tells the story of two brothers connected by a shared passion. In the novel, this is how we meet the elder of the two brothers: Derek Turner. “I’m getting … Continue reading Conversations with Dead Serial Killers
These last three months have been a whirlwind of research and writing. In an attempt at authenticity and accuracy, I’ve learned more about serial killers than I thought it was possible for someone to know without actually being a serial killer.

Rader was born in 1945 and, although this is a year before the Boomer Generation began, he made a … Continue reading The Problem with Serial Killers: BTK (Dennis Rader)
The Ash & Col Podcast is, once again, live. This week we’ve been talking about one of my favourite horror shorts: The Judge’s House by Bram Stoker. It was interesting going back to this story because, whilst it’s an effective piece of writing that works well as a piece of horror literature, revisiting the story … Continue reading The Judge’s House by Bram Stoker
The Acid Bath Murderer John George Haigh was born on 24th July 1909 in Stamford Lincolnshire.

Haigh was brought up … Continue reading The Problem with Serial Killers: John George Haigh
