Warwickshire horror writer released new story

A LOCAL horror writer from Warwickshire has released a new story titled ‘Where the Watermelons Grow’ with a mission to raise funds for displaced families in Gaza.

The scheme aims to support Watermelon Relief, a grassroots organisation providing essential aid and humanitarian support to Palestinians affected by recent conflicts.

Moved by the ongoing crisis and devastation in Gaza, Dave Musson decided to channel his creativity into action – and is donating all proceedings to charity.

His story, available on Kindle and in paperback, explores themes of oppression, genocide, and resilience, mirroring the current plight of Palestinians facing humanitarian crises.

Dave said: “In light of the atrocities unfolding in Gaza, I felt compelled to use my platform as a writer to contribute in any way I could.

“The situation demands urgent attention and action.

“All proceeds from this story will go directly to Watermelon Relief to assist in providing meals and vital support to those in need.”

The 38-year-old author, originally from Bulkington and a former student at King Henry VIII School in Coventry, expressed his profound dismay over the humanitarian crisis affecting Gaza.

“Writing this story was both a cathartic outlet and a call to action. I hope it resonates with readers and inspires them to join us in supporting Gaza.”

The story delves into a fictional narrative set in a village grappling with the devastating impacts of colonisation and conflict.
