I’m so excited!
It’s here!
My first short story collection!
The Rusalka Ritual and Other Stories has been published!
What’s it about?
Five differing tales give you an insight into Dracomagan’s life after Dragonscale Leggings. Five stories portray my heroine from varying viewpoints. The collection deals with redemption, disappointment, dark enchantments and a morning of golf. I talk more about the collection and read a short extract in TRRAOS!
You can buy the e-versions at Amazon. If, like me, you prefer paperback, I will announce when it will be available at My Books Page.
It has been a really difficult year for me so far, which, if you receive my Newsletter, you will know about. Currently trying to deal with 2 deaths in my immediate family, living in an emotionless state and awaiting the results of a CT Scan and blood tests to see if the cancer has returned or not. But, despite all this, I have managed to publish two books this year! Even difficult situations can inspire growth and productivity.
I look forward to your comments on The Rusalka Ritual and Other Stories! Please feel free to share and re-blog this post!

have you read this yet? I can’t wait!!!!

FlamesofWintercoverI’m really pleased that Flames of Winter, book 2 of The Wrath of the Northmen, has been released! It’s such a relief to finally have it published! It’s been four years since book 1 (although in my defence I did write another trilogy in that time). Anyway, I hope you enjoy it!

Here’s the start:

“Corban Sandril, also known as Roishan Darry, onetime elite soldier in the Ral Toran military, spy, assassin, and acolyte of the Council of Masters, woke to screaming pain.

It was dark. He could see nothing. He ought to be concerned about that but he wasn’t. The pain left no room for anything else. Agony consumed him. Fire burned in the stump of his wrist, sizzling up his arm, paralyzing his shoulder and coursing through his body.

Prostrate on a cold stone floor, he curled around the stump. It was still bleeding, pouring out his life…

jackdaw
swerves in mid-air
grasps hold of bare branch and
wobbles, sways to and fro, trying
to get
his balance without his black tail.
Watches me with pale eye,
wanting pastry –
hungry

misted
trees softened by
both rain and emerging
leaf. The landscape undulates and
sways in
a green-touched prevailing wind from
the south. Yellow- green now
are the spiky
branches.
