biography-dark

Len (1953) and Mick (1952) have been writing together for a long time. We met in 1964, aged eleven, at Ambrose Fleming Technical Grammar School in Ponders End, Enfield. We weren’t friends immediately, that came later, when, aged 18, we had left school and started work – Len as a lapidary in London and Mick for Lloyds Bank. Len left after 43 years, Mick left after 40 years – we do things for the long haul. We began to talk one night, in the bar of the Crown & Horseshoes pub in Enfield, went for a long walk after closing time, and a life time of friendship was born.c-h-pub
We both live in Hertfordshire, about 25 miles apart. We began writing in 1972 with short horror stories that were either Pan Horror type stuff or very atmospheric mood pieces. Our first sales were in the early 1970’s, with Curtain Call to London Mystery Magazine for £7 and Benjamin’s Shadow to Hugh Lamb for his Taste Of Fear anthology. Hugh has remained a lifelong friend.sam-1979
Our writing history previously settled into roughly ten year periods – the early traditional ghost story period of about ten years from 1974: a middle period, when we wrote a lot without sending much off for possible publication. During this period we wrote and broadly destroyed about 11 novels, and wrote numerous stories. This ‘barren’ period lasted about ten years from about 1984. The third period began around 1994 and is when we began again in earnest and happily continues to the present day. During this period a lot of the published work featured on this website, bar the novels, was written. The fourth ten year period began around 2004 with the publication of our story collection, Falling Into Heaven. This phase is dominated by novels. But we have also produced ghost story collections. signing-1
2014, possibly the start of another ten year cycle has brought DCI Jack Callum period crime dramas, crime and thriller novels, romance, some supernatural novels and a ghost story collection. Long may it continue.

“Not only has their influence shaped the supernatural fiction field in the United Kingdom over the past couple of years, but now they are making significant ingress across the Atlantic.” Stephen Jones, editor Mammoth Book Of  Horror series and many others
