Madeleine Swann

Name: Madeleine Swann

I write stories of the surreal, weird and odd, sometimes with a horror edge. I've been lucky enough to be included in anthologies as well as having a collection out now with Burning Bulb Publishing called The Filing Cabinet of Doom.

It includes a novella of the same name set in a black and white soundless world. A travelling carnival arrives to a quiet town where a psychic announces the end of the world. While the townsfolk panic three people make their way to Head Office at the Council - a far off and dangerous place. I've also written for Bizarre and The Dark Side magazines.
