Assorted A5 titles including:

Ripitition (2017)
a short, b/w 8 pager about trauma and fixation following a scary event. It helped solidify the things I did remember, and contextualise the repeated anxiety of what could have happened. Turned out that this is a therapy technique sometimes used to help patients from spiralling, to express their feelings and have reference to a chronological narrative.

Rosa Praed: a queer spectre (2016)
a vast research project I did out of excitement for finding a female Australian author who'd been present in the circles of Arthur Conan Doyle, Oscar Wilde and Bram Stoker, was writing vampire fiction BEFORE Bram Stoker, and was LIKELY in a long term same sex relationship. So this is a compilation of quotes, my commentary, photos, drawings, while I spiralled further into this research hole.

Don't F*ck The Bear and other life lessons from fairytales (2017)
commentary on some of my favourite, or most memorable, spooky stories. Mention of Angela Carter's Bloody Chamber stories, Crimson Peak, Selkies, Cocteau's Belle et la Bete, Bluebear, Allerleirauh (or Donkeyskin), The Yellow Wallpaper and others.

A story of Meat, Mutts and Murder made in collaboration with Sophia Parsons Cope.
The town’s nice enough. Popular place for retirees. Or it used to be. Credit card fraud is on the rise in this sleepy country town. And there’s a lot of dogs for a town like this. Bad dogs. SCAM DOGS.
More dogs than people these days.
