About Kestrel36


I've been writing as a hobby since my early teens, but recent changes in life have allowed me the opportunity to write full time. I used to be a nurse, now I am a writer.

Most of my work tends to be in the horror and dark fantasy genre's although I have also written and enjoy working with lighter, more traditional fantasy and science fiction. Much of the work I will be submitting here will be older pieces and the occasional newer piece that I do not intend to publish.

I write a lot of short stories, and am working on a horror novel at the moment which I will most likely upload here (it is my first attempt at a novel and it's unlikely that I will be attempting to publish it - I would rather people read it for free, online and give me some honest feedback before I throw myself into something more serious).

I hope that you enjoy my work, an I would love to hear feedback from anyone who reads through and wishes to comment on my stories.

Mirrors and Demons

There was a demon in my bathroom mirror. This was not one of those cartoon imps, with their chubby faces, and tiny horns. It was not the kind that waves its cute little pitchfork at you as it capers off to some daring, childish mischief. No, this one was a demon of the first degree. Its blood shot eyes stared through the glassy surface of the mirror, sharp teeth like tiny knives visible...

Judgement of Angels

Lightning burned through the heavens above, a furious display of power punctuated at random moments by deafening cracks of thunder. The cold fire set the night sky alight. A storm in Heaven.  As flash after flash ripped across the electrified skyline Alenna stared on in silent awe. It was a lightning storm without rain or wind, only those terrifying bolts of pure energy searing across...
