About Howard Carlyle
I live in the historical city of York in the UK with my wife and my son. I have been writing for over 25 years. My first steps into the world of writing began with writing normal poetry, as my Dad calls it. Then I tried my hand at writing dark/horror/gory poetry. I’d read some other dark/horror poetry by some other poets and was blown away by how good it was. I posted one of my horror poems on some Facebook poetry groups to see what sort of reaction it would get and I was surprised by the positive reaction it recieved. I decided to give story writing a go and the rest is history. My stories have appeared in numerous horror anthologies. The three ebooks, Sick Twisted F*cks, APOCALYP-SICK & Death, Infection, The Devil and Jed, are available on Amazon are a collection of some my stories that appear in them. You can find these in the BOOKS section of my this page. The Meyerstown Secret, in all, took me three years to write and is also my first real physical book (its also available as an ebook). I have two more stories which will hopefully be getting released some time this year, one of which I have just finished writing.
Synopsis for Sick Twisted F*cks
The title of this eBook says it all. It contains two short, twisted tales. The first story, Love Sick in The Head, is about Timothy Bridle who falls in love with his girlfriend’s dying mother… That’s when things get really sick and twisted. A sickening love story. The second story, Feeling The Fear, follows one man’s curiosity to discover if he can feel and experience someone’s fear. Things don’t turn out too well for him or his poor subject.
My Review for Sick Twisted F*cks
Gross! But, should I be concerned that I enjoyed the 5 minute reads? Just when I thought the first story was horrific, the second one topped it. These stories are truly disgusting, but entertaining. If you have a sick and twisted imagination, these little gems are perfect!

Synopsis for Born a Serial Killer (an excerpt from Born a Serial Killer)
Johnny Delmer was born in a cabin that should have been condemned in a small town known as Docerville. Johnny’s parents didn’t have much money to put food on the table for little Johnny to eat. Johnny’s father Jack worked at Doc’s gas station in Docerville whenever he wasn’t drunk. Johnny’s mother Susan worked as a waitress at Dugers Diner also located in Docerville, but only part-time because she had an alcohol problem as well. The Delmer’s didn’t own a car, so if they wanted to go to work or to the store they had to walk in the heat, rain or snow. Being that Johnny was just a little boy with dreams and visions like any little boy his age. All Johnny knew was the poor life he was given and had no idea most people owned cars or had running water in their homes. If little Johnny wanted a drink of water he would go to the well in the back of the cabin and if Johnny was lucky he would get enough water in his cup to wet his lips. Johnny’s father had a short fuse and it didn’t take much to set him off. If little Johnny wanted to spend time with his daddy. His dad would kick him and tell him to go play with the chickens while he scolded his wife Susan about how awful her food tasted. Johnny didn’t like the way his father treated his mother. For instance, if Susan didn’t cook his food on time he would beat her or if he thought the food was too cold he would throw the plate of food at her. Jack would make comments like, “What kind of woman are you, you can’t cook or clean. I don’t know why I married you.”Jack would also call her a fat pig. Seeing the way Johnny’s father treated his mother was the early stages that would mold little Johnny Delmer into a Serial Killer. As Johnny was reading the dirty newspaper, he came across an article on Ed Gein who was a Serial killer. Johnny was over taken with excitement and the more he read about Ed Gein’s killings the more excited Johnny got. Johnny said, “I want to be just like this man Ed Gein. We have something in common, we both enjoy killing. But I have never killed another human being. Maybe someday I will kill another human being. Who knows maybe I’ll be the next Ed Gein?”
My Review for Born a Serial Killer
Finally a book that is sick and twisted! I have read a lot of books, and some are morbid, but nothing like Born a Serial Killer, and let me tell you, I want to read his other short stories! I have become obsessed! If you like mutilation, serial killers, blood, gore, and more, you would love this and I am sure his other works!
