NOW WORKING ON Jon Darke. Set in a world fighting over shrinking resources, biotech has taken the lead. Jon was born in Isoland, a vast circular expanse of darkness, desert, storms and suffering, centred on viral research for the biotech industry. Test subjects are convicts from the outside world, or captured from the tribes of outcasts scattered amongst the enclosed mountains. Unlike the Outside, they have learned how to live harmoniously with their harsh world. Jon is one of the taken, but his gifts will transform the world and endanger his life.

NEW NOVEL COMPLETED – Tree. Society has been decimated during the Fall, when strange lights in the sky led to widespread madness across the Northern Hemisphere and the building of the Great Wall. Soon after grew the Cazash Tree. Starting as a forgotten seed in the London Natural History Museum before overwhelming the ruined city, the Tree reaches upwards hundreds of feet to create a twilight world. The sporing is now approaching and time is running out. Nature goddess Annan has been forgotten since Celtic times, but the Cazash Tree is not of her making and she is angry. She awakens druidic priest and sorcerer Myrddin Wyllt and starts a sequence of events that will change everything.

ECO TRILOGY 3Ouroboros, final in the Eco trilogy.? Thirteen years in the future, the second Scitha invasion is imminent and this time, there seems to be no hope of survival for the nature-loving society of the Rift. Leah Esvane, now aged 21, is more gifted than her mother Caia. Leah can also mind-join across time, and perhaps find a way to prevent the emergence of City 5 – even if this means she can no longer exist.

ECO TRILOGY 2 ?Second Dawn, second of the Eco Trilogy. As a conflicted civilisation struggles to recover from the war, new threats emerge. A second city (Rax) has followed City 5 to the surface, but life in Rax has adapted to the ocean and it sees the land as a threat. This novel was completed end of 2018.

ECO TRILOGY 1? -?Emergence – an undersea city of post-apocalyptic survivors from an alien invasion re-emerges in a stone-age world called Eco, where science must come to terms with the power of an ancient magic.
