I’ve just embarrassed myself with this on Trapped By Monsters, so I figured I may as well do the same here, too! Following on from a post there by Ali Sparkes asking other TBM authors about our early writing efforts, here’s, um, this below…!

It’s called THE HAUNTED CAVE. I found it in a cupboard about ten years ago just before moving out of the house where I grew up: it’s my earliest surviving complete story. I think I wrote it when I was seven years old!

As you can see – if you overlook the cliches and so on, gah! – certain characteristics of my, heh, later work were already set in stone. Notably speed, action, and dreadful handwriting! ;p
