I’m a creative storyteller (AKA a writer) based in Newcastle upon Tyne. I also blog about weird myths, folklore, and all things curious or bizarre. The odder the better!
But I primarily write fiction – dark fantasy, Gothic horror, and Westerns, to be precise. I’ve written stories for as long as I can remember, and learned to type on my mum’s old manual typewriter. Keeping it old skool.
My Books page features more titles.
When I’m not writing, I teach Creative Advertising, with a focus on creative copy. Using ‘story’ as a communication tool is one of the best ways to reach new people. I also teach my students to use their powers only for good…
I’m also a copywriter, so if you need any shareable content in the travel, culture, or publishing sectors, check out how to work with me.
And when I’m not writing or teaching, I’m working on a PhD. If you like horror films, send me an email or add me on Twitter because I’m looking at set design in contemporary haunted house films and I love discussing the topic with like-minded people!
You can email me at [email protected], or follow me on Twitter @IcySedgwick. I also have my own YouTube channel, and I loiter on Facebook and Instagram, mostly sharing photos of animals and chattering about horror.
