Author has written 3 stories for Fantasy, and Horror.

'The Unspoken Death of the Amazing Flying Boy' was shortlisted for the Terry Pratchett First Novel Award 2013. Thank you to anyone who has dipped into the first chapter, thank you very much to those who have read the whole novel. I hope you enjoyed it. Any feedback would, of course, be welcome.

'Tsarevich!' is a new magical realist series of four novels set in St Petersburg in 1933. The first is 'The Winter's Rage' and begins with the story of Alexander's misguided act of defiance against his aged and overprotective father, a giant and a mystic. Thus begins the fall of the monarchy and the destruction of the the most powerful country on earth. Like the rest of us, Alexander must find himself, find his place in the world and learn to forgive both his adored father and himself. I hope you like it. Books 2, 3 and 4 to come. Reviews are very welcome, good and bad!

As for me I am 59, a Pharmacist and live in Doncaster UK.

The Unspoken Death of the Amazing Flying Boy reviews
1889, Paris. A time of colour and excess, but a time too of modernity, of the new Eiffel Tower and the Exposition. A time when magic is making way for science. But then from the slums there comes a boy; a silent, beautiful boy with a terrible secret and an incredible gift - he can fly. Will those who seek to exploit him succeed? Laurent doesn't care - he's fallen in love...
