I don’t promote escapism. Rather, I invite readers to immerse themselves in my worlds and return to their own, feeling refreshed and renewed.

My aim in life is to enchant, entertain and engage with readers through my writing.

I don’t write stories that are cosy or comfortable with happy endings because my experience of life has been quite the opposite.

Instead, I write real books. Books that contain characters with both light and darkness within them. My characters are all flawed, some more so than others.

My writing is vivid and imaginative. If, like me, you prefer to read books that allow you to make up your own mind about the themes within the plot, rather than being spoon-fed political propoganda, you will love my works. If you can embrace the light along with the dark and aren’t squeamish about meat-eaters, death, sexual acts or swear words, you and I will get on well together.

Welcome, to my world!

The Kaerling

I’m currently writing The Kaerling, a dark fantasy series that can be read as individual, separate books or read in chronological order as a series. Pick and choose as you will!

Dark fantasy means that it’s not politically correct and contains scenes of violence and unacceptable sexual behaviour as well issues such as slavery, prejudice and human sacrifice.

Want to read the series? The Kaerling is available at Smashwords, iBooks, Kobo, Nook, Kindle and many other online stores!

  4. But if you are broad minded, enjoy lyrical writing and can accept the darkness along with the light, read on … <– I Love this! I personally believe the darkness is an implicit prerequisite for "light."

    • Thank you lastflyingcow (brilliant name!) Thank you for reading my About page! Having gone through a very dark time, I now appreciate that without darkness, you cannot understand the light! I’ve tried putting this in my books to encourage people to embrace bad times as well as good times, but unfortunately, not a lot of people want to hear this!

      • Thank you! Yes, as per the duality of YIN/YANG and the lectures of Alan Watts I’ve also come to understand that darkness and light is a duality, and not necessarily separate entities.
