I write these days a cacophony of genres: fantasy, sci-fi, mainstream, literary, some poetry every now and then. Novels, short stories, novellas, and whatever might fall in-between. I joined ABC Tales in May of 2014, and appreciate the forum it gives me to write and experiment, and even to include my strange little illustrations next to my work. 

You won't see a lot of my stories published anywhere else just yet, but please check out a few of these sites:

Or check out my e-book: The Price of Blood; Book One of the Golwerra Stories, available from Amazon.  Links here to my book on Amazon UK and US.

and keep watching this space...

There are also a few more stories, and a few ravings (I mean, blog entries) to be found on my website:
And check out (somebody... please... anybody) my 24-part story "These Words That Describe Melissa":

My stories


Fur mottled slate grey and ochre; asleep in sunlight, blends in with the rug.

Love (2)

Love unwisely spent; a lesson learned, brittle truths; but loves grows back again.

It takes a village; but a child will not be taught, would run free instead.


She who would once fly, lays her red heart in his lap; unwinged but free.
