Welcome to my fantasy world.

                         

If stories of myth and fantasy, tinged with real life dramas is your thing, then you have just nudged ashore the legendry island that is PeridotWhere living gems in every hue of emerald, clad the hills and valleys, below the feet of snowy capped mountain peaks. As observed by man when they first landed upon these shores.

 

I have been writing children's stories since the nineties, but this is the first time I have dipped my toe into the world of publishing.

 

The Tales of Willowdean Forest- Short Stories, was the title of my first book and e-book publication.

As the title suggests, it comprises a series of short tales of ruling, heart broken dragons. Forest tree giants, able to walk (for one night only).  Of witches, fair and foul, depending on your prospective.  And even a confused scarecrow with a hidden, lurid past.    

 

My latest book, Forest of Fleeting Shadows, is a revision, a second addition of The Tales of Willowdean Forest, but also, it is a thrilling novella that provides the sequel and is the culmination of all that has gone before.

Book blurb:

Love, jealousy and hatred – life-changing emotions for any mortal. But when two young witch sisters, Sapphire and Saffron, exhibit such feelings, then the wickedness of their family feud is felt by many living on the mythical land of Peridot.

But while their minds are bent on destroying each other, an old menace lurks amid the shadows, watching and waiting, for this, the right moment, to subdue all his foes and revenge themselves from a painful defeat – a battle lost long ago to a rival goblin tribe.

Does salvation rest with the dragons of the Moonstone Mountains? But man exiled these creatures long ago, after he first arrived on the unblemished isle and claimed it all for himself.

Could the dragons’ rift with man be healed? Could the dragons be persuaded to return and help? And at what price?

It would be great if you have a mind to read some of my work and I would value any comments or questions you may have, so please do not hesitate to email me via my contact page.
