Seeking Adventure and Magic? Look no further.


Support my Kickstarter campaign and delve into an epic fantasy story imbued with the grit and whimsy of an old folktale. Lose yourself in the captivating tale of a resourceful witch's quest for peace and a courageous elf with an unexpected heart.

When an army of cruel soldiers plunders her small village, Bridget flees into the woods. With no home and no family, she risks the perilous journey to find shelter in Oakenwald, the fabled land where elves and men live in harmony. Armed with a bag of charmed buttons and a handful of spells, she treks through the wilderness, encounters evil creatures from the worst folktales, and meets the elf, Windswift.

But the peaceful realm of Oakenwald is threatened by a new danger. Ships carrying ruthless invaders have entered the southern port, and Bridget and Windswift are recruited to investigate. Their scouting team comprises elves, humans, a troll, and messenger birds. The perils increase as they travel farther from the elf queen’s domain. Will Windswift’s sword and Bridget’s handful of spells be sufficient to defeat the invaders? Can they return to the safety of the guarded land?   

Join my Kickstarter campaign now and be part of this thrilling adventure! Help me to create a Special Illustrated Edition of the Oakenwald Duology. Two epic fantasy stories in one gorgeous volume!

My campaign is due to launch in September. I'll post more details over the next few weeks.

Mid-year Report on my Writing and Publishing Progress


In the past six months, I published one SciFi novel and ran a Kickstarter campaign for a special edition of my superhero story.



In March, I published Karrik, Book 6 in Taxyon Space, near-future Sci-Fi adventure and romance.


The fates of six people are at stake.

Karrik Kenton Tallis, Third of the Flaming Comets, endures a miserable existence in a hospice on his home planet. Unable to walk or speak more than a single word, he misses his older brothers and is unaware of their sacrifice to ensure his care. He cherishes a faint hope of recovering his health.

Karrik’s life improves when his brothers return to Rishalt with their human companions. Alarik, First of the Triad, is escorting Phoebe Wong with her brother and a mysterious alien object for an audience with Prime Jadel. The middle brother, Baswin, is traveling home with Holly and Rosie Moon. The Moon sisters are enrolled in an experimental program to train human psychics to navigate in hyperspace and relieve Earth’s governments of their onerous reliance on Warrish tripilots. Rosie, a psychic healer, desires to help Karrik despite the conflict with her duty to humanity.

But the water world of Rishalt holds many hazards, both above and beneath the waves. Can the alien treasure help the three brothers to conquer the challenges and unite with their chosen partners? Read the scintillating story of the Flaming Comet brothers to learn the answers.
