Where do i begin…
It’s almost eight years since the start of my writing journey and as a writer you’d think I’d be great at telling my own story. Yet, here I am, stuck on how to begin. I suppose my love of writing began when I first fell in love with reading. When i was small, I used to get bedtime stories just like any other child, but the difference was I didn’t want to be read to, I wanted to be the one telling the story. So my poor Dad definitely had his fill of ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ and my personal favourite ‘Angelina Ballerina’s baby sister’. (I took this same book out from the library every single week for a year) I’ve come a long way from then, a LONG way. Since those days in my hometown in Norwich, I’ve since moved away to University in the English city of Lincoln to study and refine my craft. It’s been a long uphill slog for sure, but definitely worth it in every sense of the word. I love writing, but I particularly love Fantasy as a genre because of the freedom that it provides, as well as the insight it can give into the domestic. In October 2015 I was diagnosed with the chronic pain disease Fibromyalgia, which has mean’t I’ve really clung to the escape that writing provides, as well as seeing the worth in what I do in giving others that escape. I think human beings are drawn to storytelling and we always have been, it’s in our make-up. Stories can give you a lift or a laugh on the worst of days, and I’ve already found myself in love with other characters and stories to the point where I wished I could make them real. I feel this very strong pull to world building and character crafting that I just can’t explain and i feel like it’s always been a part of who I am, it just took me a long time to want to share that with the world. Now though, i’m ready.
I hope you’ll enjoy stepping into my imagination through my work, just make sure to wipe your feet before entering and that you close the door on your way out. Can’t have a drafty imagination now can we?
Thanks for reading and look forward to meeting you at the Leeds signing xx

We are pleased to welcome Jamie Summer to the 2017 Darker signing!
My name is Jamie Summer and I’m a native to Germany. You might be thinking: Why doesn’t she write in her own language? Quite simple: I’ve always loved English more. Ask anyone; they will tell you that I talk more English than I do German.
My best friend got me into writing a while back, and yet I never thought I would end up writing my own novel. Until I woke up one morning, a dream so vivid and real in my mind that it wouldn’t leave me for days. And even then, only when I brought the story to life.
Besides writing, I love reading, cooking and spending time with my family and friends.
Looking forward to seeing you all in October for this Darker signing.

Excited to announce that S.M Phillips will be at the Leeds 2018 event!
S.M Phillips is a fun loving mum from Manchester. When she’s not busy writing, you’ll most likely find her head buried deep inside her kindle with a cup of coffee in hand. Talk to her when she’s reading and things could get pretty colourful, pretty fast, just ask her Hubby.
She is a lover of chocolate, especially if it has peanut butter inside and loves a good cocktail or two. She often wonders if she should spend more time buying shoes, but then she remembers her never ending TBR list and realises that money can be spent on more important things… Books.

We are pleased to welcome Jessie Courts to the Leeds event!
Jessie Courts is the pen name for two North West London born and raised 40 something best friends who decided to take their deliciously dirty fantasies and make them a reality through their characters, Rachel, Luc and Joe. Many a raucous night was spent devising plot lines and creating raunchy sex scenes much to the delight of the other cafe patrons at our usual haunt. Not the usual night out for two working mums whose kids are all at uni and have far too much imagination than our poor husbands can cope with. Subsequently, our readers now have access to all our inner most deviant thoughts and we really hope you enjoy our ramblings as much as we enjoyed writing them.
Mrs R and Mr V are only the start – after all we have two lifetimes of experience to draw from…. watch out ladies!

We are thrilled to announce that Juliet Cromwell is joining us at Darker 2017!
Like many children born in the fifties, Juliet’s father served in WW2 as a tank commander. He was involved in the D-Day landings, then, later, seconded as a guard at the Nuremberg war trials. Her grandfather served at Gallipoli in WW1. Although each received awards for bravery, they both undoubtedly suffered for their services.
Juliet’s experience of education was first at an austere convent school; later, aged seven, she was sent to an all-girls English public school. She witnessed many dark doings within these unaccountable institutions.
Her young adult years were spent living and working in London before studying history while raising her children. She now lives with her partner by the sea and is currently writing her next novel.
We are thrilled to welcome Charlotte E Hart to the Leeds 2108 event!
Charlotte is an Dark Erotic Suspense/Romance author living in the heart of the Shropshire countryside in Great Britain.
She’s lived all over the UK, but finally settled in a small town that still reeks of old school England.
Writing and poetry have become a revolution for the soul, and she cherishes every second that she’s sitting at the laptop tapping her way into a new character.
“Life is a torrent of differences, different needs and wants, and it doesn’t always end that well. Yet we strive …”
Charlotte E Hart
Most of Charlotte’s work is BDSM based.
