A Kaleidoscope Of Worlds

My Work, My Life

 

WHAT DO I WRITE?

When writing novels I will write science fantasy or paranormal fantasy. With my SHORT STORIES I can swing between the literary and the EXPERIMENTAL, but they've always got some element of the fantastical or dark.

 

WHAT KIND OF STORIES WILL YOU FIND HERE?

I'm fascinated by dystopian stories, of a future that could one day be our world. I pursue tales of conspiracy and paranoia. My favourite kind of story is that of a quandary, when forced to choose between two or more horrible outcomes. I adore twists and RED HERRINGS, I often use foreshadow in both subtle and extreme ways, and I love to build tension, either the mysterious or romantic kind. I like a good vampire story, but not zombies, they're scary. I used to write HORROR but even then those stories were more speculative than gory.

 

WHAT WOULD I SUGGEST?

If you geek out over multiverses, portals, complex character, ulterior motives and powers that are just as much a curse as a blessing, I recommend you read the WANDERER OF WORLDS book series. It's contemporary, gritty and expansive.

If the idea of taking time out of your busy schedule sounds too difficult (TL;DR) and you prefer to read your stories in smaller chunks, then I shall point you towards BLUE SHIFT, OBLIQUITY and FUTUREVISION.

After something softer? With a touch of futurism and idealism, and a little bit lighter? Then FEMME : Light is for you. It follows the story of a young woman from Earth who travels in a portal to the world of Femme -- a world that reveres her gender.

Wanderer of Worlds

If the worlds don't kill them, the Authorities will

Daeson and Synjan are fleeing the Hunter sent after them by the Authorities. They are able to shift from world to world but the Hunter is an experienced tracker with exceptional resources. With multiple characters working both with and against them, the Wanderer of Worlds book series is an exceptionally complex contemporary fantasy that challenges both protagonist and antagonist at every turn.

 

Femme : Light

A touch of romance with a touch of slavery

Kaley Blackburn is a sheltered young woman who is sent by her University to the world of Femme. Whilst there, she is awestruck by the magnificence of the technologically advanced world but is confronted by the culture of slavery, when she is assigned a man named Mecca to assist her for the duration of her stay.

 

Blue Shift

When the lights come, unplug everything.

Featuring the 'Second Life' novella with extra bonus short stories. UFOs, damning prophecies, evil laboratories and persistent madness resides here - all with a science fiction or speculative twist.
