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 Seeker: A Sea Odyssey

Seeker: A Sea Odyssey is the story of two people who meet in Mexico and fall in love. Rita is an American part-time English language teacher and freelance reporter for an English language tourist magazine struggling to raise two young boys on her own. Bernard is a French geologist under contract to the Mexican government to search for underground thermal springs. She dreams of finding Shangri-La after witnessing a bloody government crackdown from which she barely escapes. He dreams of having a yacht and sailing the world. Their dreams mesh, and they immigrate to Canada to earn the money to build their boat.

My Review for Seeker: A Sea Odyssey

I love memoirs.  I have not turned down a memoir yet, and I have yet to find a memoir I did not like.  Reading Seeker was an amazing story on dreams and survival.  I was swallowed up in the book, it was almost like I was actually a ghost watching everything.  If you like a good story that has love, fate, adventure, and suspense, this is the book for you.  I promise you that you will not be able to put it down.
