Coming Next


Expected ebook release December 2019/January 2020

Expected paperback release February 2020/March 2020


I don’t have a full book description yet, but there’s a new case for Amber and her team back at the main Hive. This problem has a personal impact, and both Amber and Buzz have new pressures to face.

(Yes, that’s Buzz on the cover. I hope you like it!)

SCAVENGER BLOOD (Scavenger Exodus 2)


Blaze must adjust to being deputy leader of the alliance, and help her father deal with the twin threats of a fugitive Cage hiding somewhere in the area, and his old supporters causing trouble. When a hunting party fails to return, the situation starts spiralling out of control, and the alliance’s off-worlder guests have a key part to play.

Full details here


HURRICANE (Hive Mind 3)

HIVE MIND 3 - HURRICANE COMPLETEBeing a telepath means there is always a new challenge. Amber’s job is hunting down criminals before they commit their crimes, but this time a simple case leads on to something far bigger. Amber’s team have to face the unknown and break all the rules they usually follow, while Amber has extra burdens she can’t share with anyone. She has a personal mystery to solve, and questions she wants answered, but curiosity is a dangerous trait in a telepath.

    I’m super excited for this release!!

    I also have a Hive Mind world question: approximately how long in our measurements is a “cor”? Apologies if this has been answered before.


    • Hi Kris, Good to hear that you are looking forward to the next Hive book. Cor is an abbreviation for corridor and sometimes used in a similar way to when someone in the USA talks about blocks. When Amber says they walked two cors to an apartment, she means they walked along two corridors. When she locates a target and says the person is about six cors away, she’s talking about how far away the person is in a straight-line distance. Cor is a vague term rather than a precise measurement and most people in the Hive will think of it as being somewhere between 100 and 150 metres. Amber often uses it when she’s looking at the world with her telepathic view to emphasize the fact that she can only roughly estimate distances.

    I’m so excited for this!

    I can’t wait, I love the Hive Mind series. Do you have a definite date yet for me to look forward to?


    • Hi Karen, I’m glad you’re enjoying the Hive Mind series. I’m afraid I don’t have an absolutely definite date for Hurricane. I’m hoping it will be out in ebook by the middle of December 2018, but it has to get relayed to websites around the world, so there can be delays in the run up to Christmas. The paperback should be out in February 2019. Anyone who would like an email alert when I publish a new book, can click on the newsletter tab to sign up.

    I can’t wait – I like having the phyiscal copies so even a longer one for me.


    • Sorry about the extra wait. 😦 I’m afraid I just can’t cope with doing both at once because there’s a completely different set of jobs producing the paperback. It has very different formatting, a cover with back and spine, and physical copies have to be checked. I really need to find a way to clone myself!


  6. ANDARIAL says:

    Happy Xmas and New Year
    Not got around to reading it yet after i got the book for my Kindle,but hopefully sometime in the next week or so 😀


  7. I hope you enjoy reading Hurricane, and happy New Year!

    I fell in love with your Earth Girl series and can’t wait to read more. I’m also really hoping you’ll continue Jarra’s story with another triology.

  9. I do plan to do that None. Hopefully something will be happening with Jarra next year (2020), but I can’t be sure of dates yet because books take a variable time to write. If you’d like to be kept informed of new releases and what’s happening next, then you can sign up to my newsletter.

    Looking forward to read Borderline !!! I love the Hive Mind series.
    I have a question. You already wrote Earth & Fire and Earth & Air. Do you know when the next one will be out ?

    • Hi Camille. I’m glad you’re loving the Hive Mind series. The final Jarra novella in the set will be Earth and Water, but I don’t know when that will be out. Borderline is currently a bit behind schedule, and I can’t make solid plans for next year’s releases until I know if that will be out in December or January. I am hoping there’ll be something involving Jarra next year though.

    I’m always up for a new Hive Mind book and looking forward to it … but do you have any idea when the next Scavenger book will be available? I am getting anxious 😉 about how it ends.. I have an idea (actually two, both were mentioned in Earth Girl series) that I want to see if I am right and of course I want to see the alliance settled in their new lives. Oh and then there is Jarra! 🙂
    If we seem annoying it is your own fault for writing such interesting characters and situations .. Good Job!!!!!!

    • Well it’s certainly a lot better than readers not caring what happens next in the stories. 😀

      The next Scavenger Exodus book is half written, and fighting it out with another partly written book to be next in the release queue after Hive Mind 4. Frankly, I can’t predict the outcome of that fight. I’m merely the author, cowering on the sidelines, waiting to see which set of characters start yelling their story at me.


      • Star says:

        LOL … yes, I’ve started series before and gave up because I no longer carried about the characters or what happened to them next. I’ll be rooting for Blaze to win that battle. I’m actually surprised by my deep interest in the outcome because I wasn’t wildly crazy about the first one until I reread it. I’m especially surprised because I’m not really a fan of dystopia and don’t read much in that genre and except for yours never finished a dystopian series.
        Btw, is there only one more book in the Scavenger Exodus series? Just wondering.

      • The third book is called Scavenger Exodus. The title is possibly a bit of a clue to what happens in that one. There is potentially a fourth book about their new future which ties everything up.

    I love the Hive Mind Future series. I’m looking forward to reading Borderline and adding it to the others on my tablet. Thanks for writing about such an interesting world and characters.
