Hello And Welcome


Hi and thanks for stopping by!

Just a bit about me: I’m an ex-English teacher who loves writing and anything with a hint of the macabre!

I was recently selected for the 2018 #WriteMentor scheme and have recently finished my debut YA Gothic novel, THE MELANCHOLY SECRETS OF SEA FRET HOUSE with the support of my mentor. I’m currently working on my second novel whilst seeking representation. I’m also a reader for the #Writementor Children’s Novel Award.

I was also featured as a working class writer on Carmen Marcus’ blog No Writer Left Behind and have had work adapted for Horror podcast Pseudopod.

I’m a huge Twin Peaks fan and a crochet enthusiast and am currently working on crochet patterns for the various characters from the series. See my progress on Instagram at @jlflannery.
