Welcome to me and my books.
On this site you will find not just news of my books and writing projects but also news about fellow independent authors. Give us the chance to take you on fascinating journeys around our imaginations to all the unusual places that books can go.
Like most authors I started as a reader and like many of you I read many book with the aid of a torch under the bed clothes when my parents turned out the light. I've had a head full of stories for as long as I can remember and now that I have retired I thought it would be time to let them loose on a page.
I have always loved Science Fiction and have ploughed through all the greats and have nurtured a desire to write my own. Sea Change is my first try and in a frenzy of enthusiasm packed in every idea that had ever occurred to me and this has left my one reviewer breathless. In an attempt to assuage his breathing difficulties I added a few more bits to the original then set about producing a proper novel with a few more words and more development. I am now at over 65,000 words and still writing. I hope my main characters will lead me to a natural break so that I can have a breather before setting out on the next journey.
Reviews of Sprocket and the Great Northern Forest
1. One of the most original and imaginative novels I’ve read in a long time!
2. This book was terrific! Once I started reading I didn’t want to stop until I’d finished the whole thing.
3. I was hooked from the first paragraph of “Sprocket and the Northern Forest”
4. The almost addicting narrative style and impressive detailing and dialogues in “Sprocket and the Great Northern Forest” that kept me eagerly turning the pages. (see the full text on the Reviews page)
