Glenn Haigh first began writing stories inside of his own head during his after school paper round. It wasn’t long before they found their way to paper.

Glenn Haigh is a fiction author who loves to experiment with different genres. He lives in Leeds where he was born in 1978. His day job is in education and he really gets a buzz from inspiring young creative minds, and from waving them off with a tear in his eye when the time comes for them to move onto university. By night, and often at the weekend and during school holidays, you will find him hunched over his laptop tapping out another masterpiece to add to his collection. When he is not working or writing his favourite pastime is hanging out with his young niece who is a daily inspiration to him. According to Glenn, she is a gift from some very generous gods on a higher plain.

You can find Glenn here:

We would like to welcome Glenn James to the Darker Signing!
Angel

Glenn James’s creative streak covers a multitude of sins.  Whilst he trained as a graphic artist, his first love is writing.  He is currently developing his ‘Skaler’ stories and mythology, about a 12th century vampire, and the world of the Born Gosmanger Dynasty.  As well as working on ghostly tales inspired by folklore of the Midlands. 

Although he has a passion for gothic fantasy writing, he also delves into other areas.  As shown by his children’s stories, which have been lovingly performed to young children across the Midlands, and of which he is currently compiling an anthology.  His short stories have been published in Magazines (both online and offline), as well as being performed before discerning audiences at open mic nights. 

Glenn is also a talented artist and illustrator.  His work has been exhibited across the globe and has been published in magazines and ghost books.  He also illustrates all his own gothic and children’s stories.  Over the years he has developed an individual drawing style he calls ‘Pre-Raphaelite Goth’.

Having worked as a radio producer & presenter for a number of years, Glenn created his own comedy sketches and became an experienced performer and public speaker.  As a result, he is able to confidently and expertly deliver his own stories to an audience, be it adult or children.

Glenn is also co-founder and organiser of ‘42’ which is a Gothic, Horror, Sci-Fi & Fantasy open mic night. Providing a unique opportunity for budding scribes and writers with a passion for these genres, to make their voices heard!

ABOUT ME…..

 Hi! I’m Very excited to be part of the Leeds event and looking forward to meeting you all there.

I’ve loved reading and writing since before I can remember. It’s always been a passion of mine to write for people and for them to enjoy my work.  I’m currently writing my way through an adult series and thinking about what I can do for the Young Adult/New Adult scene. There’s always ideas floating around in my head.

When I’m not writing I’m reading or watching films and enjoying time with my boyfriend, little dog and family.

 You can find me at the following places –

Victoria’s Biography

Victoria L. James is a teenage girl stuck inside a thirty-something-year-old’s body. A Corona and nacho appreciator with a ridiculous obsession for all things Rocky Balboa, she currently lives in Yorkshire, England, with her husband and two baby boys. Having had a strong passion for words and stories going as far back as she can remember, she credits her love of literature to her Grandma Bess who taught her that you don’t need a lot of money to travel to different worlds, experience new places, and live a thousand lives.

She currently writes on her own as Victoria L. James, with her friend L.J. Stock on the Babylon MC Series, and is due to publish her Vicki James collection in 2018.

We would like to welcome Paula Acton to  the Darker Signing!

10603735_911356352256597_4510661012856064492_n.jpg

Born in Leeds, currently living in Huddersfield, Paula Acton decided when she turned forty to stop dreaming about writing and do it. Having been published in online journals and featured in the charity anthology Lupus Animus, her first two publications are short story collections with her debut novel to follow later in the year.

“When I turned forty I decided that it was time to actually do something I had been wanting to do for a long time and that was write a novel. Queen of Ages is still in the process of being edited but I am also now working on a collection of ghost stories which will be published soon and my first short story collection Disintegration & Other Stories is available on Amazon. I have also been published in various online journals and in the charity anthology Lupus Animus.

Home life is hectic with a small child and various animals seeking to distract me from my writing but I firmly believe if you put aside a few minutes of every day, one day you will achieve your dreams.”

We are pleased to announce that Chris Turnbull will be signing at Darker in 2018

Hi,
I’m Chris, Reading and Writing have always been a passion of mine, I love the feeling of been drawn into a good book and escaping into another world.
Writing has been something that has been with me from a young age, and creating characters is something I particually enjoy.
My writing is almost always set in the past, I love finding out about times gone by and try to include the knowledge I learn about the era into my book, and hopefully you too may learn something you didn’t know before.
~
Chris was born in Bradford, West Yorkshire in England.
The eldest of two sons Chris originally wanted to become a dog groomer and trained in this field before working on a farm in the grooming room as well as helping with the dog hydrotherapy.
After a few years Chris moved on, and found a job at Bradford University working with PhD students in the Biology labs. Chris enjoyed nealry 7 years here before moving over to York University to take on a similar, be it more senor role.
Chris now lives on the outskirts of York with his partner and their Jack Russell terrier
