Delighted to announce that I've been selected as a judge for the 2021 Aurealis Awards. Which category? Horror, natch.

At the moment ‘Cursed’ is one of the most watched shows on Netflix – the story of Faerie sorceress Nimue and her strange involvement with Excalibur, Arthur and Merlin.
Well, I got there first.
‘Secret City’ is the story of Nimue - but a very different, contemporary take on Arthurian legend!
It’s the first part of the ‘Galhadrian Trilogy’ (to be followed by ‘Hunting Charlie Wilson’ and ‘The Knight with 1,000 Eyes’) and is perfect for kids!
Warning: Contains a knight with the unpronounceable name of Uallabh

It's finally out! A psychological/horror thriller about the Mackenzie Poltergeist - inspired by real events. Get it on Amazon or on my website at janandrewhenderson.com.
I am both excited and a bit scared about this. I own City of the Dead, a ghost tour company in Edinburgh, Scotland. Weird but true. It investigates an entity known as The Mackenzie Poltergeist, in a locked section of Greyfriars Graveyard - which has become the best documented supernatural case of all time. In 2003, I wrote a novel about it called Father Figure – based on real events. The next week, my house overlooking the graveyard burned to the ground, destroying all the files. This year, I finally wrote it again. A week after I finished, the Coronavirus shut down my tours. Probably a coincidence, but you can judge for yourselves.
If you fancy reading the book, you’ll see why it took me almost 20 years before I got up the courage to publish it - and why I waited until I had moved to the other side of the world.
The paperback and e-Book will be out on June 8th. In the meantime, it’s available to pre-order in digital form at https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B087PXYJXB/ref=dbs_a_def_rwt_bibl_vppi_i12
Now that the world is stuck indoors, it’s time to write that novel/epic poem/postcard you never got round to – and become rich and famous. And I want to help. https://www.greenlightliteraryrescueservice.com
