Sorry it's been a while. I have no excuses, though I did fall into a coma for a while, and there was that time I got lost in the Amazon. But I'm back.

Book 3 in The God Slayers Quartet is at the editors as we speak, and I'm currently pottering with the final chapter. I found the third book very difficult to write as I needed to give some answers to a lot of the long running questions and mysteri... Read more of this blog post »

The Fall - Chapter One (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
1 chapters   —   updated Apr 03, 2012 03:48AM
Description: Read the first chapter of The Fall, for anyone who loves The Hunger Games or just loves reading a good story. In a post apocalyptic world ravaged by the gods Ben Casper lives in a crumbling shopping mall called The Glass Palace with his family. He's just come back from a rites of passage into the brutal outside world that officially makes him an adult. Now he must get married and be trained to take over from his father as Mayor. Except he sees things differently now; he falls in love and makes a friend in a member of the Felum, a vicious human/cat hybrid tribe. He doesn't want responsibility. Only he might have it thrust upon him when he becomes embroiled in a conspiracy to kill the gods; a plot that could lead everyone he loves into mortal danger... This is the first volume of The God Slayers Trilogy
The Book of Fire (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
1 chapters   —   updated Apr 02, 2012 04:15PM
Description: On a world where 99.9 per cent of the population have magic Cressida Widdershins often feels left out because she's about as magical as a turnip. But when a school trip presents her with a magic book she feels her time has come. Unfortunately dark forces are also after the book; shadow beings with vast powers and their assassin, a man who can turn people to stone. The phrase "be careful what you wish for" springs to mind... This is the first volume in the Cressida Widdershins series.
