As well as being a screenwriter, novelist and journalist, Paul Finch manages to find the time to edit a series of regional British horror anthologies, published by Gray Friar Press. I’m very grateful to be included in the latest, Terror Tales of Wales.
“The Rising Tide” is set in beautiful Pembrokeshire. Thank you to the Moore family for the sea at Newgale and the Taylors for the mountains of the Preselis. Their knowledge and advice regarding local folklore was invaluable.
