New Collection of over 20 Stories

Wow it's been a while - both for my blog (apologies!) and publishing a book. Although a year isn't bad. This one is a collection of short stories, some previously published, others just dusted off and re-finished. But all hopefully exciting, mind-bending and thrilling.

Check out DANGEROUS ILLUSIONS - my second collection of short tales (after ESCAPE PLANS in 2015)
