Welcome to my website. I am currently in the process of setting up the site, so please bear with me while I work out what’s what. Over the following days and weeks you’ll see new posts appearing, together with stories for you to read and news I want to share.
In the meantime, let me tell you about the title I’ve chosen to headline my website. The Spider’s House is the title of Paul Bowles’s third novel, published in 1955 and set in Morocco. Bowles is a key inspiration for me – I hope to be talking about him in more depth in posts to come – and so the choice of title is a homage to him, really. The abundance of spider-related material in my own stories also made it seem wonderfully appropriate.
