Beginning with the funeral of a renowned classical violinist in a sleepy rural hamlet in the Lake District, a former theoretical physicist tries to make sense of his brother's suicide. Across the country, a university student, enjoying the unexpected attentions of an enigmatic seductress, is disturbed when his best friend falls to his death from the thirteenth floor of a neighbouring campus tower block.
As each tries to unravel the mystery behind the apparent suicides, they are drawn into an obsessive search for a computer-generated fractal video sequence, with startling effects on human consciousness, and which might just pave the way for discovery of the ultimate Theory of Everything.
However, they are not the only ones to have seen the potential of this mind-altering video, and soon find themselves in a desperate race against time with gangsters from the shadowy worlds of sex, drugs, cyber-crime, and massively multi-player on-line gaming.
This is a magical story about a gifted but vulnerable girl who is both saved and damned by an angel who falls in love with her music and claims it as his own in a Faustian pact. With Mary in his thrall, he ruthlessly kills those who threaten his plan to bring Mary to Carnegie Hall where her talent will be hailed supreme.

That all changes, along with her life, forever, when she unexpectedly wins a fortune on the lottery and is suddenly propelled into the realms of the super-rich elite. Everything that money can buy suddenly comes within reach for her.
And while Dorothy likes the idea of being rich beyond her wildest dreams, she soon finds that it will bring its own set of problems. A set of problems compounded by her unique and amazing ability.
In the old days when she had been just plain old Dorothy, it had been easy to hide her psychic powers. But now, rich beyond belief, it’s going to be so much harder. When her dreams and visions start to become more vivid and frightening than usual, she wonders if any amount of money can protect her from her own gifts.
Since the age of nineteen she has been aware that a shadowy presence travels with her. This being provides solace and protection whenever the going gets tough, yet seldom provides a straightforward answer to her questions. What do the dreams and visions mean, and why does one particular strange and dangerous man keep appearing to her? The universe is talking to Dorothy, but is she ready to listen?

Centuries before the rise of Invictus, Torg fought another great war.
Torg, the Death Wizard and hero of The Death Wizard Chronicles, faces a hideous Druid Queen who controls an army of minions through the immense power of her will. Among those doing her bidding is a Stone-Eater: a fierce and powerful creature who obtains its powers from eating stone.
The Death Wizard Chronicles is a six-book epic fantasy that debuted in August 2012 (Bell Bridge Books). The main character, Torg, is a Death-Knower wizard who has died and then returned to life more than a thousand times. The Short 13 Page Story Torg’s First Death describes the first time Torg dies and returns, thus becoming the first Death-Knower wizard in centuries.
"Many things roam the streets in the darkness, and some are not human. Creatures lurk in the crannies and alleyways, pouncing on their victims with murderous intent. It is not unusual to be awoken from sleep by screams, but most of us just check the latches on the shutters and press our pillows against our ears, hoping the horrors of the night don't find their way into our own bedchambers."
Demons roam unchecked as the evil sorcerer, Invictus, tightens his grip on the world . . .
Hounded by Invictus' minions, Torg and Laylah escape into the northern wilds of Triken where the wizard, sorceress, and a handful of loyal companions encounter a menagerie of hideous monsters.
Even worse, the demon Vedana manipulates their every move from her black realm, wielding her wicked magic like a diabolical chess-master.
Against such evil, what hope have they to reach the safety of the White City?

HUMOUR, MORE CRAZY VISIONS AND A MYSTIC MAN!
But when Dorothy decides to treat herself to a tarot card reading one day, she is stunned to hear the medium’s prediction for her future. Why would someone want to hurt her? What could she possibly have done to make such an enemy?
Dorothy tries her best to ignore the portent, but she cannot get the words of the mystic out of her head and they continue to haunt her, lurking in the deepest recesses of her mind. And when the spiteful text messages and malevolent phone calls begin, the words of foreboding return to her and she begins to question her very sanity.
She begins to wonder if there is some truth to the warning after all. Is it possible that betrayal and catastrophe are lying in wait, ready to destroy her new life before she can fully enjoy it, or blow all the cash?

Everyone they love may be doomed. Everything they cherish may be destroyed. There is no turning back.
Torg and Laylah’s world is in chaos; their life together, in jeopardy. Even a powerful Death Wizard such as Torg may not triumph as three terrible wars are unleashed upon the land. The evil druids of the forest Dhutanga—giant, insect-like monsters—swarm to attack the white horsemen of Jivita. The druids are superior both in strength and numbers, but the forces of good are not without hope. Torg and his Tugars stand by the horsemen’s sides.
Several hundred leagues to the east, an army of zombies invades Tējo, the great desert. Most of the Tugars have left to aid their allies, and only a few warriors remain to defend the Tugars’ homeland against this horrendous assault.
The most devastating force of all is led by Mala, the ruined snow giant, who has marched with his massive army of cretins and golden soldiers to assail the black fortress of Nissaya.
Triken is on fire.
The final battle--and the stakes have never been higher.
The long and bitter war is not over yet. One last battle remains, and it will set the Green Plains on fire. Mala's army of monsters has come to challenge what remains of the white horsemen. At stake? Torg's life . . . and Laylah's freedom. But even if the Chain Man and his minions are somehow defeated, an all-powerful being still waits in the wings--Invictus, himself. When the sorcerer finally makes his appearance, will Torg and Laylah's fragile hopes be incinerated?
Invictus, the god-like sorcerer, has finally been defeated. Torg and Laylah are safe . . . or so it seems . . .
But now the wizard and sorceress face another daunting challenge. Laylah's unborn child is growing abnormally fast--and he wields power even from her womb. A new horror is about to be born into the world. Are all who live on Triken in terrible danger again?
In the climactic conclusion of The Death Wizard Chronicles, Torg and Laylah are forced to fight for their freedom one final time.
Before he rose to power, the signs of his evil genius were present. Only a few noticed.
Seemingly ordinary parents give birth to a boy with god-like powers--and soon discover that his magic is matched only by his propensity for evil. When the boy's mysterious grandmother appears and takes him away to a distant place, the parents are filled with relief.
But the boy named Invictus does not like taking orders from anyone. Very quickly, even his grandmother--a demon in disguise--cannot control him.
Eventually, Invictus learns that he has a younger sister, purposely hidden from him--but hidden no longer. And so he returns to his birthplace, obsessed with winning her over . . . no matter what.
