His adrenaline kicked in at the sound of the shot. “One.” “There’ll be more. That car’ll empty out quick.” That was bad. They’d be outnumbered by at least a dozen. “Did you do it?” John shifted, scouting the opposite side of the train with a glance. “Not enough,” he pulled his own silver Colt and unslung his rifle. “This is more than a six bullet situation.” *** Welcome to Good Tales For Bad Dreams, a short-fiction series of re-imagined fairy tales.

It all began with Alan Moore’s “The Anatomy Lesson”. When I was far too young to be reading such things, I picked up a small, dirty, plastic-wrapped comic digest from my local library. The first and featured story was a piece by Alan Moore which started with the line: “It’s raining in Washington tonight.” It tells the story of a mad doctor who is awaiting the resurrection of a character whose name I won’t reveal here. Suffice it to say, I was both horrified and intrigued. My young mind had never encountered such a dark and twisted tale, whose ending at the time shocked me. I remember being transfixed by the power of Alan Moore’s imagery and the depth of his narrative. That story still haunts me to this day. I first picked up the pencil at age 6 to start creating a few stories of my own. Haven’t stopped since. My first trilogy was completed by age 16. Despite the urging of my Writer’s Craft professor, I never published it. At that time, I found the entire publication industry far more frightening than anything I had ever read. I graduated from the University of Toronto with an Honours Degree in Psychology and Sociology and a minor in English which included extensive coursework on Short Story Writing, Novel Writing, Cinema Studies and Poetry.
