FICTION

Novels

The ley is a world apart. A paradise, a prison. A raw and elemental wilderness;   a place of lost innocence. Bowing to seasons, to wind and to fire, to the shocks that nature thrusts upon it.

Within its labyrinth of reed, creatures search and stumble blind. Vengeful, beautiful, unforgiving. Living and thriving, surviving and dying, feeding off themselves.

Into this merciless world the girl is lured irresistibly. She is drawn to it, repelled by it, drowned in its subterfuge and shame.
Short Stories

Children play Frisbee on a beach; a man borrows his friend's boat to go fishing; a couple move to the Highlands to retire; a chance conver-sation is held in Gatwick Airport. These are ordinary events experienced by ordinary people. What makes them extraordinary is where they lead.

The twenty stories in this collection are diverse; what unites them is a search for meaning and closure.     The characters exist in a natural world that is as mysterious as it is majestic, and they struggle to find their place within it.
Image of the novel Snake
Trapped and unable to escape, she is changed irretrievably, beyond the power of salvation. Beyond redemption. Transformed and reborn, only to be compelled to confront her ecstatic nightmare repeatedly. Locked in a cycle of death and life.
Mulhorn's stories touch on the transience of human existence. Frequently, they are unresolved. They acknowledge life's hardship and disappointment, yet hint at the promise of hope beyond - a hope which is never quite satisfied.

Ever since he arrived in the village of Nettlesden, Matty has been warned not to enter the wood. It has lain undisturbed for years. The trees within it creak and groan perpetual pain; they yawn an invisible agony at the life that lies buried within. No one has reason to go near, except for Uriah.
 
But Matty is enthralled by its savage beauty, and entering deep into its heart he begins to discover its secrets. Things that the villagers thought dead and forgotten; and things they thought were alive.


What Matty uncovers prompts shame and denial, setting the village against itself, and threatening all those who live there.
