Format: Kindle, ePub, PDF, Paperback

Back Cover Blurb:
When John Simpson hears of a bizarre animal attack in his old home town of High Moor, it stirs memories of a long forgotten horror. John knows the truth. A werewolf stalks town once more, and on the night of the next full moon, the killing will begin again. He should know. He survived a werewolf attack in 1986, during the worst year of his life.

It’s 1986 and the town is gripped in terror after the mutilated corpse of a young boy is found in the woods. When Sergeant Steven Wilkinson begins an investigation, with the help of a specialist hunter, he soon realises that this is no ordinary animal attack. Werewolves are real, and the trail of bodies is just beginning, with young John and his friends smack in the middle of it.

Twenty years later, John returns to High Moor. The latest attack involved one of his childhood enemies, but there’s more going on than meets the eye. The consequences of his past actions, the reappearance of an old flame and a dying man who will either save or damn him, are the least of his problems. The night of the full moon is approaching and time is running out.

But how can he hope to stop a werewolf, when every full moon he transforms into a bloodthirsty monster himself?

Novel Title: Son of the Fallen
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Length: 55k words
Format: ebook

Back Cover Blurb:

James Henry Worth doesn’t remember much from his early life. After all, it’s been four decades. When he was seventeen, a Minotaur hopped off a cloud over his backyard and snatched him from his hammock, his mother, and whatever semblance of a normal life he had. Now, he’s condemned and chained in the middle of the Mojave Desert, having committed a crime for which he is clueless.

When a stranger plucks him out of his desert prison, he’s given a chance to re-enter life and answer the riddles of his existence. As new friends help James recover his mind, body, and self, he realizes that he is surrounded by mysterious beings who masquerade as normal folk. Meanwhile, hidden in the deserts and cities of California and the American Southwest, remnants of an ancient power bide their time. As James searches for his mother, and discovers the sins of the father he never met, he becomes caught in a plot of mythic proportions that threatens the entire world.

An urban fantasy written with detail and realism, SON OF THE FALLEN is a novel about James, and others like him, who find out that they're not quite ordinary, and their struggle to survive in an extraordinary world.

For half a century, war has waged between the citizens of Itára, and the macabre forces of the golden-eyed dragons of the Svorin Dominion. The despotic Krai'ta'or, Tochravanthis, seeks to control the continent out of vengeance fueled by a deep hatred for the magic-bearing humans known as P'nai. The legend of the Ihánar is the cornerstone for the Ferryn-those fighting to remain free. Mason Kitch has spent his youth among the shade of Lottenwood's willowy boughs, and the cobbled streets of C'reseth as the grandson of the town blacksmith. What he knows of his predictable world will soon evaporate as fate sends him into the unknown lands of Itára on a search for a family friend, and his destiny. Now, Mason is faced with braving the dark challenges that have vanquished his race, and outlawed magic from the lands.  To keep the embers of the past alive, he must learn the forbidden art of his ancestry before the stain of history can repeat itself.

Back Cover Blurb:
It is a time of blades, beasts and the darkest arcane.

The land of Castille is far from peaceful, its tyrannical ruler abuses his power as the nation falls into ruin, a civil war looming ever closer. Dark cults lurk in the shadows as sinister plots are set into motion.

Across the realms approaches something far darker and far more terrifying. Fire and rock descend from the heavens, long extinct creatures stalk the lands from the blackest nightmares and cities crumble as the ground quakes. Civilisations burn, wiped from existence as entire generations are lost. Castille will be next.

Soldiers, knights, mages, all will be called upon to face this evil and protect the people. From the chaos a group will form. A tournament champion, a tainted innocent, a pair of runaway slaves, an escaped murderer and a mysterious sorcerer. Each has their own secrets, their own tales, but when called upon they will fight to the last. Garrick Chilver, the champion of Salerna, will lead them and it is his journey, his destiny that will decide the fates of so many.

The warrior’s journey begins.

The circus is a blur of commotion with last minute preparations for the spring tour. Ravi, the high-wire heart throb, becomes jittery when he meets the company’s newly-hired female dwarf. Hours before departure, his magical perceptions are on fire as he witnesses her involvement in a gory bump off.

The circus manager can’t be found. Ravi is desperate to protect his sweetheart and performing partner, Alice. The train creaks away, beginning the long journey with danger stowed on board. Nicknamed the Great Birdman, Ravi steps forward and exposes his true identity—a real risk during edgy, vigilante times of prohibition. A brave move—but will his Suparna abilities be enough to snuff out this fierce demon?

Back Cover Blurb:

Empaths. Superstrength. Kung Fu Masters. Petting Zoo People.

There is a word for people like that. A pre-packed fluffy-feeling word the government’s spin doctors had come up with.


Lucretia had her own words for her peer group: freaks of nature, science projects, and fanatics. They were all the people that had been born, transformed or self-willed into something that should have been bizarre, but was becoming less so.

All she wanted to do was live an unnoticed life in her brownstone, working at the library and chasing down idiot cops who took her books on stakeouts.

Of course, there are problems with that, such as the fact that she's considered an interesting research specimen by some of the more amoral companies. Her tendency to stick her nose in where it probably shouldn't be. A love-hate relationship with various alcoholic beverages.

Oh yes, and the fact that she's still on parole.

Novel Title: Cast of Illusions
Genre: Historical Fantasy
Length: 185 pages
Format: Kindle and PDF
Back Cover Blurb: Jonathan Wilder is about to make a name for himself. His plays and troupe of actors are considered among the best in Salsima, and he is on the verge of building his own playhouse. However, when his latest play greatly offends the king, he and his troupe are forced to impersonate a royal party to infiltrate the exotic and presumably savage people known as the Selphyn, an elfin-like race with a special bond with animals. In over his head with politics, Jonathan will find himself in an intrigue worthy of one of his plays, with mistaken identities, treason, assassinations, kidnapped princesses and feverish passions. Just what a misanthrope with social anxiety needs.

Set in a world similar to Elizabethan England, CAST OF ILLUSIONS is an historical fantasy that celebrates -- and satirizes -- the world of Shakespeare.

A Tide of Shadows, Volume One of the Chronicles of Llars.

Carym of Hyrum is a respected village hero. That is until he is wrongly accused of rebellion and murder. Saved from execution at the hands of the authorities by the very band of rebels he despises, Carym must risk everything to repay the criminals for his freedom by undertaking a dangerous quest for a vial of water from the mythical Everpool.

Meanwhile, a dark wizard in league with the evil god, Umber, leads an army bent on the conquest of the entire Northern Continent. He, too, seeks the Everpool, but for far more sinister purposes and his powerful minions hunt Carym at every turn.

A shake up is occurring in the heavens as the offspring of the Father God war with each other and with Him for dominance over the peoples of Llars.

In order to reach the Everpool Carym must learn to deal with his new powers, dodge monstrous hunters, guard against betrayal, and resist the evil temptations that threaten to overwhelm him like a Tide of Shadows.

The Guardians travel to the home worlds of the Chosen, sent by the Masters of Gentra to guide and protect them.

 Aaron—scholar, alchemist, and sorcerer's apprentice—wants nothing more than to study his tomes, perform his experiments, and spend time with his closest friend, Shanna. Substitute the occasional romp about the city for the books and plenty of games of crutchit for the smelly alchemicals, and Shanna is just fine with that, too.

Their routines—and their lives—are thrown into chaos when an elemental attack is launched against their home. Aaron thinks Shanna killed, while Aaron himself is forced to flee for his life. For Shanna, who survives that fateful night, the greatest adventure of her life is about to begin. Only the worst of nightmares awaits Aaron: pursued by dwarves, hell hounds, and a demon who will not stop until he is dead, the only thing keeping him alive is his own resourcefulness and an eslar mercenary whose reputation as a killer might make him the worst threat of all.

Though Aaron and Shanna travel different paths, their purpose is joined when they individually learn of the mysterious Fifth Element. Shanna sees it as the final piece in the puzzle that is her destiny. To Aaron's logical mind, it is an impossible ambiguity. Whatever the answer, the Fifth Element draws them back together and into a final confrontation not as allies, but as adversaries.

All she wanted was a breath of fresh air. Was that too much to ask? 

Apparently so.

Isobel Enid Schuster never planned to go into space. She almost wished there had been no Vatican III, and the clergy had not gone co-ed, or at least the Jesuits had not.

But all those things had happened. The Galactic Union Space-Troopers teamed up with the St. Bennedetta Jesuits to form the Space Academy Preparatory School, and now Bel is a Professor of Extra-Terrestrial Humanities and Value Systems on a starship.

Restricted shore leave on the planet Llannonn is better than staying on the ship, especially when Bel swaps clothes with a close-look-alike Llannonninn woman and slips out to see the sights. But the woman is the target of a criminal from another planet. The woman thinks Bel is a police agent, come to take her place. The criminal thinks Bel is his target. Yet another criminal thinks Bel is a VIP he can kidnap and hold for ransom.

The only thing between Bel and a life of slavery in the provinces is the tenuous friendship she's formed with Tetra Petrie, a language professor from the planet Gilhoolie.

Gangsters aliens, local law enforcement and highly placed political operatives all get into the act, as a tangle of misunderstanding, miscommunication and mistaken identity land Bel in court, facing what passes for a legal system on Llannonn.
