A post-apocalyptic Earth under alien rule.
A lone wolf assassin with a chip on his shoulder.
Can he find his way through a maze of deceit to victory?
Aiden has always felt like an outsider. After the rebel operative is captured and imprisoned by the world’s galactic overlords, he awaits execution. Then a mole working for the occupying regime alerts him to a plot that could destroy the entire resistance... Engineering a daring escape, Aiden’s growing feud with the new rebel leader leaves him out in the cold – and smouldering with resentment. Faced with deceit and betrayals on every side, he recruits a group of overlooked outcasts and stakes everything on one last mission.
Can the restless, reckless Aiden take a stand long enough to save humanity from enslavement?
It's 2094 and Aiden, a temperamental Australian, is part of the underground resistance to the alien takeover that followed WWIII. He gets him into hot water with his rebel leadership, and his ex being the alien ruler's heir complicates matter – plus, he's been captured by the regime and is awaiting execution. He escapes, releasing the Creature, only to be confronted with his girlfriend Petra's defection to his new leader.
Aiden requests a mission. After choosing one companion (Bully, a fug) and stumbling upon another (Pavlina), he's almost killed by a turncoat rebel, barely escapes the mission's aftermath, and has to fight for his life when the stolen spacecraft is unexpectedly boarded. There is a crisis of identity, a rebel uprising and two unexpected plot twists, but by the end of the book Aiden discovers a new maturity and becomes the leader he was meant to be.
There are many ways to die. Plague is only one.
Work on a London tube line is halted by the discovery of an ancient plague pit and in it, a very recent corpse. A day later another body is found, also in a plague pit. This victim is linked to the Palace of Westminster, where rumours swirl around the Prime Minister and his rivals.
As the number of deaths climbs, the media stokes fear. Government assurances are disbelieved. Everyone feels threatened. This has to be resolved and fast.
A disgraced civil servant and a policeman must find the answer before Westminster closes for recess. Power, money and love curdle into a deadly brew that could bring down the Mother of Parliaments.
Time is running out. And it’s not clear what – or who – will survive.
Earth is at peace…then an alien infection changes things.
An engineer creates a revolutionary engine to launch the world's hope for salvation into distant space.
A crew of Earth’s top talent face never-before-seen adversity as they search for a cure for humanity.
Earth had achieved a semi-utopia until aliens destroyed the peace that took decades for hacker revolutionaries to build. After a bizarre robot occupation leading to all-out war, humanity was left with a deadly alien pandemic. Their possible salvation lies in a team brought together to search for a solution beyond the stars.
The mysteries of genetics and microscopic entities, along with the wonders of the future surgical scene are at the heart of their quest, with the soul coming from the vivid characters who explore them.
As their journey into deep space begins they encounter obstacles and battles of wills as they strive to survive the harsh and not-so empty space on the way to their distant goal. Together, the hand-picked team deals with technical problems, illness, personal issues, and secret elements of Earth’s warring bio-tech ideologies as they kick off their mission to save Earth.

The main action in Potholes and Magic Carpets takes place mostly in rural Kent and London. This contemporary character-led novel looks at the dramatic incidents, challenges, and temptations in the past and present lives of four couples of varying ages, professions, and sexual persuasions who are all linked by either blood or friendship. Just as in life, the negative, selfish, sometimes violent natures of some of the characters in Potholes and Magic Carpets wreak havoc on the innocent. A tale of not so simple folk.
Available in Kindle, paperback, and audiobook editions.

This non-fiction, colour-illustrated book describes my close relationship with old postcards. I've been collecting postcards since the nineteen seventies and now own over two thousand of these charming, beautifully quirky historical items. I started fanatically collecting them while writing my thesis on Fantasy in Postcards at art college, where I was studying for a graphic design degree. My thesis won me a first with distinction, whereas my graphic art annoyingly gained me only a 2:2. I was asked by my art history tutor to lecture on the subject of Fantasy in Postcards. As I was only twenty-one at the time, I didn't feel ready. I opted to write this book instead. All the cards in my book are from my own large collection.

Could Have Been Verse is a book of nonsense. This stuff isn't rare. It's certainly not well done. And to call it poetry would be an insult to the medium.

Having been chosen to broker a peace agreement between Mortian and Earth peoples, he is hampered in his efforts by the disappearance of his Earthling friend, Aysha, the general unpredictability of life on planet Melinda and the sinister chicanery of the chilloks, a species evolved from ants that is bent on overthrowing humankind...
