"Captures the wonder of youth, and the loss of that magic, in a way that reminded me of some of Ray Bradbury’s works and IT by Stephen King." —Josef Hernandez, Examiner

One summer in 1985, the funfair came to the sleepy rural town of Ashthorpe, and with it the smells of hot dogs and candy floss, the allure of magicians and the Big Wheel, and the sounds of young girls giggling. But what promised to be the highlight of the season for a band of teenage boys soon turns to tragedy. Years later, when Drew receives a mysterious phone call, he learns one of the most important lessons life has to teach: the past can never be forgotten. 

"A novella of staggering power and depth that not only will affect you emotionally, it will most likely leave you running to turn the lights on."—Peter Schwotzer, Literary Mayhem

Co-Written with Kevin J Anderson

Jorie Taylor has lived her whole life on the generation ship Beacon. Fleeing an Earth tearing itself apart from its exhaustive demand for resources, the Beacon is finally approaching Sarbras, the planet circling Tau Ceti they hope to make humanity’s new home. But Earth has recovered from its near-death experience and is now under the control of a ruthless dictator whose sights are set on Tau Ceti as well. President Jurudu knows how to get what he wants—and he wants Sarbras.

"For those wanting that old style SF vibe, in the style of YA Heinlein (Farmer in the Sky, Podkayne of Mars) or more recently Allen Steele’s Coyote series, these will keep you greatly entertained. I wouldn’t mind reading more stories set in this universe myself."--Mark Yon,

THE Hollow Earth

There are secrets held within the earth that should never even be whispered, secrets that only the darkest minds of our kind entertain or record. One such archaic tablet was stolen from the British museum and with it something from the deepest catacombs of the earth has been released.

Days later a demonic looking corpse is found crucified on the cupola of St Paul’s Cathedral.
