All my writing at present is best described as being within the following Thriller sub-genres: – Mystery, Action & Adventure – Vintage Science Fiction – Gentle psychological horror
Mystery Action & Adventure
The Flames of Time &The Embers of Time (Flames of Time series – Books 1&2)
This is my Flames of Time series:
A three novel series, the first two books of which are now published and available, with the third and final book following in early 2018.
I like to think of these stories as a cross between Indiana Jones and the Da Vinci Code.
Set in the 1930s the story follows an eclectic group of European adventurers after they get involved in a strange shamanic ceremony that leads them in search for lost artefacts, ancient secrets and the promise of lost knowledge.
Vintage Science Fiction
This is my Glass Darkly series, a multi-book series the first two volumes of which will be published in November and December 2017. I like to think of these as cross between Jules Verne and John Wyndham. Again set in the 1930s, but on a world beset by strange creatures that attack from a region of ‘other space’ called the Expanse, the story follows the crew of a giant bronze airship as it travels into the unknown Expanse in defense of the world they know. I have previously released the first book in these series – Through Glass Darkly as three short novellas, but I’ve decided to re-release these as a single novel in November, just before the second book in the series ‘By a Blue and Crimson Light’ is released in December.
Gentle Psychological Horror
Finally, this genre is where I’m currently writing a few short stories and novellas for release around Halloween of 2017. Again with a distinct 1930s setting these stories are the blood thirsty and graphic horror stories which have been so popular in recent years, instead they focus on the gently terrifying and suspenseful type of horror typified by some of the early writers in the genre – Algernon Blackwood, H.P. Lovecraft, Walter De La Mare. I’m also intending to give the first couple of these stories away to everyone on my mailing list, and anyone who signs up during October and November 2017.
