meet the author


Hello, and welcome to my website. I am a writer of dark and terrifying things, ranging from psychological crime thrillers and twisted science fiction stories to strange literary deeds and outright horror gems.

In this website you will find some of my works, the latest of which is the audiobook of A Murder Of Crows, narrated by yours truly, and available at all the usual outlets, including Audible, Google Play,, Kobo, Overdrive, Storytel, Findaway and a whole range of other retailers, worldwide. The Amazon/Audible link is here:

Also available is my FREE monthly newsletter. Simply sign up and you will find out about all the terribly exciting things that are in the pipeline (and there are some biggies, that’s for sure). In the meantime, have a stroll through my inky black imaginings, and watch out for that shadow…





As well as being an author I am also a narrator/voiceover artist. My debut novel was transformed into an audiobook for W F Howes and is now on general release via the usual channels, including Audible.

As well as providing my own voice for this I will also be doing so for other projects in the near future.

If you wish to contact me about this or any other projects then please do so via the contact form below.

Thank you.


Ian Skewis is also a narrator/voice artist. If you want to contact him about this, or any other projects, then please use the form below. Thank you.

Winner of the Gold Acorn Award for Best Audiobook of 2018.

Longlisted for the Guardian’s Not The Booker Prize, 2017.



Inkling, (The Speculative Book)


'His Martian vistas, simple dialogues, and dream-like imagery resonated with the same metaphysical surreality as Samuel Beckett.'
