Enter my world of fantasy

Welcome to my world of Fantasy. A world where majik abounds, where heroes, and heroines are not who you would expect. Where honour is important and grief hurts as much in the story as in real life. Join me as we explore the worlds, and lives of my characters as they come alive on the pages.

Something I try to live by

“I expect to pass through this world but once.
Any good, therefore, that I can do
or any kindness I can show to any fellow creature,
let me do it now.
Let me not defer or neglect it for
I shall not pass this way again.”
(A Quaker saying)

Browse these pages, read excerpts from my finished books, as well as my works in progress…

…and don’t forget to visit my best picks and recommendations and Freebies (everyone wants freebies) check out the free stories.

This is a living website, things will change. Don’t be surprised when you come back and there have been changes made.


I will be releasing a second edition of each of the books on this website and they will be offered for sale as soon as they are ready, plus many new books. You are going to be introduced to three new worlds, but you will learn more about them in the upcoming blogs. The rewrite and changes have already begun. The covers will remain the same but there are changes to some of the stories I have wanted to make.

I have never written a blog, watch these pages for excerpts from the changed books and new ones which will be available soon as well the introduction of new characters and the discussion of a new series called the The Reluctant Hero that I hope you will all enjoy.
