A terrifying storm lashed Sydney’s North Shore on June 21st, 1975. Boats were swamped and jetties smashed in what some claim was the worst storm to hit the coast for four decades.

In the midst of the chaos, Luke Romyn’s parents battled to get to a hospital to birth their baby boy. Normally their idyllic island cottage was a near-paradise; on this night the journey to the mainland in their tiny boat seemed like a passage through Hell. Their son was born near midnight, but part of the storm never left him.

When Luke reached fifteen years of age his father was killed while working in Fiji, leaving Luke and his mother alone. At times, the only things to get Luke through his grief were the stories playing out in his head, endless fantastical tales

Stepping into the audiobook world

Over the years, I've had many requests for audio versions of my novels. I've tried hard to deliver, but the circumstances have never been right...Until now.My fantastic management team has managed to secure a deal with none other than Tantor, one of the premier production teams for audiobooks in the USA, for my Prometheus Wars series. Book one, Beyond Hades, is available now, and I'm thrilled with Read more of this blog post »

“Fine, it’s decided.” Vain resumed his stride. “I’ll do all the killing, and you do
all the stuff that an Avun-Riah does. Whatever the hell that is.”
Luke Romyn, The Dark Path

“So why are you scared?” “Well....” Talbot looked around. “Something might happen.” “Then worry about it when it actually happens. I mean, sure, keep an eye out for shit, but don’t let it affect you internally. Even when some bad shit does happen, you need to react – so you shouldn’t be scared then either.”
Luke Romyn, Beyond Hades

“Your approval isn’t necessary, nor is your understanding. The only thing that really matters is that you don’t make his death count for nothing. Look at that bag and know the man now lying in it was a better one than you, but he died to protect you in order to give you a chance to save the rest of this God-forsaken planet.”
Luke Romyn, Beyond Hades

Stan Law A belated thanks for choosing me to be among your friends, Luke. It may interest you that my book Marvin Clark—In Search of Freedom in now a matching FREE download on Amazon Kindle. It's neither mystery nor a thriller, but you might have a good laugh. Enjoy it while you can. (A little review on Amazon wouldn't hurt either!)
