Welcome

Hello everyone! On my blog you can find articles about folklore, writing and fairy tales. Visit the about section if you would like to know more about my work or scroll down for trailers and my latest blog posts. Thank you for visiting!

It has been a huge honour and an amazing experience to work together with The Alternative Stories and Fake Realties Podcast on several projects.

In Scottish folklore a selkie is a being that can shapeshift from seal to human. My audiodrama Selkie is based on this and tells the story of a selkie who is forced to live her life on land and cannot return to the sea. You can view the trailer below and listen to the episode here.

The Witches’ Circle is a short story inspired by the dark witchy folklore of Flanders and can be read in The Seelie Crow, Issue 3.

Naart Stuyck is a short piece of fiction based on Flemish folklore about a haunted bakery and part of the Ghostlore Audio Fiction Anthology. Listen here.

The Folklore of Animals, Creatures, Beasts and Familiars. Listen to this episode here.

Read my short story ‘Women’s March on Versailles’ in The Copperfield Review.

I’m incredibly humbled to share with you all that I’ll be working with the very creative and talented Superstition Sam and the wonderful artist PrairieBones on a new project that will bring superstitions as short stories, poetry and art to your home!

Salt & Mirrors & Cats will be a vintage style literary magazine and to turn this dream project into a reality we need your help!

More information on what we hope to do with the literary zine and how you can help can be found here.

To cease to be transformed into a werewolf against his will the man had to revisit all the villages he had brutally attacked.…

The Legend(s) of the Swans of Bruges

Besides the medieval facades, the cobbled alleys and the charming bridges, the city of Bruges is also well-known for the elegant swans that majestically swim in the narrow canals, and several folktales tell the story how these swans came to Bruges. The first tale is my favourite and the lesser-known narrative of the two. According…
