Three Floors Up
Three Floors Up is the story of one man's psychosis and its effects on all who enter his world, and why the ones he chooses never leave.
This is a tale of dark doings, of murder and distorted perceptions.
Not to be read by the faint of heart.

North to Maynard is a tale of an urban spirit, a ghost in the machine story for these modern 'tech' times.
It exposes something which could happen to any one of us, at any time.... even during a road trip, when you are travelling North to Maynard.


Mechanical Mike
I had much so much fun in creating this story it has encouraged me to venture into writing more tales in the realms of science fiction.
Mechanical Mike is a fun tale, a modern pulp fictional story of Metal Robotics, Nazi-occupied France and Love. Enjoy

Miriam's Hex
A dark comedy of greed, selfishness and latent curses.
Be careful of what you wish for, it may just come true....

One Christmas
"My name is Tina and I want to tell you about what happened to us one Christmas. My story is sad and funny and ultimately the happy ending we all love."
Life is full of ups and downs and even when things are bad, there is always humour, because life is like that.






Phantom Footprints
Scarlett has awoken in hospital, she has no memory of the accident, no recollection of events leading up to it. But she remembers Travis - or is he a mere figment of her imagination?

Chantilly Lace
A group of friends from my teenage years asked. “when are you writing A Fifty Shades of Grey?”
I replied, “I’m starting tomorrow, and you guys have starring roles.

Designed to entertain, but still with a twist in the tail.

Or maybe it's the start of a trip to Hell. Brandon never foresaw the can of worms an exciting week in vibrant Vegas would unlock.
