I'm a horror writer from the UK working on my first full length horror novel. I've been a full time writer for six months, having spent years honing my skills with some awful work, all part of the learning curve! My books are available for Kindle and Kobo. I have a website, a Facebook and Twitter account and an Amazon author /author/valentineking. I'm a fan of twists in the tale, subversive chillers and I try to write the type of stories I love to read, short snappy horrors that get straight to the point.
Interests Reading and writing horror, photography, walking, running, complaining bitterly about the good old days, plotting revenge

A woman snaps and kills her abusive husband...or so she thinks.
I never meant to kill him. There was one moment, just a single moment when I genuinely wanted him dead but that isn’t a crime is it? I mean on TV people get whacked over the head all the time. It never seems to do them much harm. They simply pass out for...
A driver hopes to dispose of the woman locked in his boot but a passing cop has other ideas...
