C.J. Lines / "Emmeline"

AuthorPhotoCJLines.jpgDark Scribe Press is pleased to announce the inclusion of “Emmeline,” an original work of short fiction by C.J. Lines, in the Unspeakable Horror: From the Shadows of the Closet anthology.

Born and raised in Birmingham, England, C.J. Lines began writing horror stories from an early age. At nine years old, his headmaster sent him to a child psychologist, having confiscated and read a notebook of said stories. Unexpected by all, the psychologist assessed the young C.J. as a “bright, normal and funny young lad” and, since no one ever figured out where the bodies were buried, the boy’s writing career was allowed to blossom.

Since then, he has written film reviews for various U.K. magazines and a number of his short stories have appeared in a variety of publications. These include the award-winning “Duplicity” which appeared in Guy N. Smith’s Graveyard Rendezvous magazine and “Lambkin” from the Hadesgate Tiny Terrors anthology.

His first novel, Filth Kiss, was published by Hadesgate Publications in November 2007 and has been described by splatterpunk author Garry Charles as being “horrifically disgusting.” Gorezone magazine had to “step away from the insanity of the written word.” Sadly, C.J.’s old headmaster was unavailable for comment.

He currently lives in rural Hertfordshire where he is working on his second novel, London Crawling.
