An Ancient Song

3 April, 2019

An Ancient Song explores the dark recesses of Otta’s soul and gives Erl a new meaning to his life.

An Ancient Song continues the twins’ quest for the “Unicorn’s Trail” with a shocking revelation at the end.

An Ancient Song takes the reader into a different world where the races are divided and immigrants seek to find their way in a strange and hostile land.

This is Volume Three of The Kaerling. It was a difficult book to write as I explored Otta’s inexplicable dislike of the despised Suryan. Like Nagaru, I wanted her to admit she had killed a man and to overcome her irrational prejudice towards the travellers who protect her.

Not everything is resolved in this volume, but, as Nagaru tells her towards the end, it’s a beginning!

Want to find out exactly how Otta and Erl escape from Aura Vere? Want to know how they discover the truth about the “Unicorn’s Trail”? Want to meet more of the Kaerlings who are both attractive and repelling at the same time?

If the answer is yes to one or more of the above questions, you need to buy An Ancient Song, now! Available at Amazon UK, Amazon US, iBooks, Nook, Kobo and many other online stores.

My Mythology

14 February, 2019

My Mythology is now available to buy online!

If you prefer a paperback, you can find this volume as part of my paperback collection, This Is Me.

I’m releasing an e-version of My Mythology today because I know that a lot of people prefer e-books to paperbacks. I like both!

My_Mythology_Front_Cover_FB

In volume two of Dragonscale Delvings, I deal with both serious and humorous matters. Death makes its way into my poems, understandably. But my flippant sense of humour is never far away – take Elf-conscious and Zombie Mushrooms, for instance.

I enjoy writing both short forms and epic poetry and you can find both kinds in this volume. Get a glimpse into my world of Nirunen, discover its historical characters that provide the background to my fantasy series, The Kaerling.

Some people think that poetry is just for poetic people. I don’t agree. Poetry is for everyone, whether or not you write it. My poetry is accessible, you don’t need a degree in English to read my work.

Take a look at the video about this volume at YouTube!

If you like video-poetry, check out Alien Watching and Compost Ghoul – both of which appear in this book!

And when you’ve had a chance to read My Mythology, I would love to know what you think about it!

Available at Amazon US, Amazon UK, Apple, Nook, Kobo and other online stores.

At last, it’s here!

Ambassador_Cover_LI

 

Ambassador is the second volume in The Kaerling series.

Otta and Erl have had to take refuge with Derri in the city of Aura Vere while winter storms ravage the land. Due to a misunderstanding at the gates, Otta is forced to act as a Kaerling in order to get free board and lodging.

Evading Nagaru’s wish to talk about the Chandar she inadvertently killed, Otta spends her time looking for clues about the Unicorn’s Trail and trying to find out about Derri’s parentage. Erl, meanwhile, finds work with the despised Suryan and regains a measure of confidence, even though his memory is still blank.

pat_unicorn_17But the Kaerlings are aware of Otta’s presence. How long can she remain hidden from them? Why do they think she is deflecting? And why does she resemble the female ambassador so much? Will the twins be able to evade the Kaerlings before it is too late …

Find out in Ambassador, available now at Amazon UK, Amazon US, iBooks, Kobo & Nook.

Not convinced yet? Check out the video about Ambassador at YouTube.

Don’t forget that the first book in The Kaerling series, Silver Fire, is a FREE download …

Quirky, intriguing fairy tales!

15 September, 2018

It’s nearly Christmas! Have you stocked up yet on your holiday reading? If you haven’t, here are some suggestions that will only cost you $1 each …
If you enjoy quirky, different stories, may I suggest Xmas @ Camelot II ? It contains 10 tales of varying length, covering a variety of worlds. The stories within the volume explore Transitions, Choices and Virtual Reality …
But if you prefer romance and intrigue, why don’t you give The Essence of Thyme a try? It’s a re-working of Sleeping Beauty with two women trying wake a sleeping Prince …
And finally, if you enjoy reading fairy tales at Christmas, then I suggest The Rusalka Ritual & Other Stories. These are fairy tales with a feminist twist to them and, like traditional fairy tales, they don’t always end as you would expect!

All 3 books are available as ebooks and The Rusalka Ritual is also available to buy as a paperback.
Whatever you read, have a wonderful, enjoyable Christmas!
