Hi and welcome. I write in just about every genre you can imagine. Okay, that's hyperbole, but I do write the story first and consider genre afterwards. I'm currently writing the third book in the Generation Mars series. Progress is reported on my website.

I have thirteen books out at present, and my work has appeared in a number of anthologies:

Blood Red Dust: Generation Mars, Book 1. Published by Fantastic Books Publishing and released 19th November 2016.

War Over Dust: Generation Mars, Book 2. Published by Fantastic Books Publishing and released 1st August 2017. Watch out for the final volume of this new science fiction series!

A Seared Sky; Joinings - book 1 of the epic trilogy

A Seared Sky; Partings - book 2 of the epic trilogy

A Seared Sky; Convergence - the final book of the trilogy: all published by Fantastic Books Publishing and available either individually or as a set.

The Methuselah Strain, a science fiction novelette, published by Fantastic Books Publishing

M.E. and me; Chronic Fatigue: My Recovery After 10 Years - a personal memoir of my time with the condition and a manual of help for sufferers, helpers and friends and relatives of victims.

Breaking Faith, a romantic thriller novel.

Ten Love Tales, an anthology of gentle love stories.

But, Baby, It's Cold Outside, a free seasonal short story.

Ten Tales For Tomorrow, a collection of speculative and mostly dark short fiction.

Sensuous Touches, an erotic anthology.

Heir To Death's Folly, a short gothic horror piece.

The covers are all featured in the side column to the left, and you can access the books by clicking on those images, no matter where in the world you reside. Enjoy the read!

At the request of Fantastic Books Publishing, my short story, Rebirth, is included as a professional example, in Fusion, an anthology of winners from a speculative fiction contest. My short story, Hybrid Dreams, is similarly included in the science fiction anthology, Synthesis. And my short story, Ouija, is one of the 33 Fantables (stories of exactly 666 words) in the horror anthology, 666, all available via the publisher or through the usual book retailers.

I also have work published in Northern Short Stories; Vol 5, Epigraphs; the Anthological Poets, and To Hull and Back 2015 Anthology. And I was invited to write the Foreword to Kathy Stienemann's The Writer's Lexicon.
