My YA Novels

Hi, I've written and self published some novels aimed mainly at Young Adults or older kids (are they the same? Who knows?).  These are all available on Amazon just by searching on the title and my name. I'd put links in but to be honest they die after a while so it's easier just to go on there. Needless to say if you happen to be a tv producer then these would make cracking dramas (only to be cancelled by Netflix after one season of course).

Heart of the World Book 6

The Lonely Sea

As powers centre around a Bronze Age tomb that is not what it seems Tom is thrown into a spectacular confrontation with powers from both the Earth and the Moon. Can he overcome his doubts and fears in time to stop the return of the most dangerous man who ever lived?  The Lonely Sea combined epic adventure on land and at sea, ancient mysteries and emotional journeys.

 This is the sixth novel in the Heart of the World series set in and around the remote English village of Rooksbourne under which the world’s natural elemental energy lies.
