I’m very pleased to announce that I sold my short story “Grizzle” to the anthology Spawn 2: More Weird Horror Tales About Pregnancy, Birth and Babies.
I’ve had this story in my head since my son was an infant. I planned to write the story when IFWG and editor Deborah Sheldon announced the first Spawn anthology, but I was so busy at the time that I hadn’t even started when the deadline passed. I am very glad the book did well enough for a sequel, and I’m grateful that Deb accepted the story.
Grizzle is about a widowed father trying to care for his newborn child while plagued with insomnia.
The book contains stories by Helen Stubbs, Matt Tighe, Matthew R. Davis, Alannah Pearson, Pauline Yates, Anthony O’Connor and many other excellent Australian writers and I’m thrilled to be in the lineup. Here’s Luke Spooner’s amazing cover:
