    Draca

    Jack's a war hero, haunted by his past... or is he just haunted?

    A war-damaged veteran on a mission to self-destruct…
    … a controlling father pushing him ever closer to the edge…
    … and a yachtswoman who gives all she has to hold him back.

    And between them all, there’s an old boat with dark secrets, and perhaps a mind of its own.

Welcome

Thanks for dropping by.

I write stories with a subtle, other-worldly twist.

I don’t like labels, although my books are acquiring a collection. ‘Literary’, ‘psychological thriller’, and ‘dark fantasy’, among others. And ‘cracking yarns’. I like that one. Life doesn’t fit into a genre box, so why should literature?

I tend to start with characters, and let their stories unfold. I want them to be so real that when you close the book you’re saying goodbye to friends.

Don’t worry, I can introduce you to more. There’s a free ebook of short stories to download, some of which sparked ideas for a novel. I’ll update it with a new story four times a year. Follow me on social media if you’d like more frequent updates.

So welcome to my worlds. Enjoy the ride. Come back soon.
