For those asking about a sequel to Telepath.

HIVE MIND 1 NEW COMPLETEWithin a couple of days of Telepath being released, people started asking about a sequel. I’ve already started work on Hive Mind 2, but I’m afraid that it’s likely to be about a year before it’s published. Sadly books take a lot longer to write than to read.

The good news is that I’m hoping to get another book out before Christmas. More news on that in a month or two.

She’s about to enter the Lottery of 2532, which will assess her abilities and decide her hive level, her profession, her whole future life. Amber’s dream is to be level 10 or above, her nightmare is to be a level 99 Sewage Technician.

When Lottery discovers Amber is a rare and precious telepath, she must adapt to a new life protecting the people of the crowded hive city. Her job is hunting down criminals before they commit their crimes, but she doesn’t know she’s being hunted herself.

A story in each of two recent anthologies.

Some people will have already noticed that I’ve got a story in each of two recent anthologies.

book_crises_conflicts2If you are interested in an anthology of Space Opera stories, then Crises and Conflicts is published by NewCon Press. It’s available in ebook, paperback, and a limited edition signed hardback. My story is set in the portal future of the Earth Girl series, and is called The Wolf, The Goat, and the Cabbage. As the editor said, nothing makes you think Space Opera like cabbages…DD_cover_ebook-188x300

If you are interested in an anthology of apocalypse fiction featuring disabled and chronically ill protagonists then The Defying Doomsday anthology is published by Twelfth Planet Press and includes my very own doomsday story, called I Will Remember You. It’s available in ebook and paperback.

Defying Doomsday

The Defying Doomsday anthology has just been published by Twelfth Planet Press and includes my very own doomsday story!

Defying Doomsday is an anthology of apocalypse fiction featuring disabled and chronically ill protagonists, proving it’s not always the “fittest” who survive – it’s the most tenacious, stubborn, enduring and innovative characters who have the best chance of adapting when everything is lost.

FRONTIER: An Epsilon Sector Novella is now available worldwide on Kindle

Frontier, the first novella featuring Amalie and her life on the frontier colony world Miranda, is now available as an ebook in a variety of formats.



Also:- KoboNookScribd – InkteraHugendubel – Bücher


FRONTIER is the first novella in the Epsilon Sector Novella sequence featuring Amalie.

June 2788. Amalie’s the last unmarried girl in Jain’s Ford settlement.

Life on a frontier farming planet in the twenty-eighth century has a few complications. The imported Earth animals and plants don’t always interact well with the local ecology, and there’s a shortage of doctors and teachers. The biggest problem though is the fact there are always more male than female colonists arriving from other worlds. Single men outnumber single women by ten to one, and girls are expected to marry at seventeen.

Amalie turned seventeen six months ago, and she’s had nineteen perfectly respectable offers of marriage. Everyone is pressuring her to choose a husband, or possibly two of them. When Amalie’s given an unexpected chance of a totally different future, she’s tempted to take it, but then she gets her twentieth offer of marriage and it’s one she can’t possibly refuse.

Note that most of the first two chapters of FRONTIER have appeared as the story Epsilon Sector 2788 in the EARTH 2788 short story collection. The other eighteen chapters are entirely new.

Why I write Science Fiction and Fantasy.

Today I’ve got a post over on the Author Allsorts blog, talking about why I write Science Fiction and Fantasy. The answer is that it’s etched in my bones.

I also did an extra interview for Litpick during the pre-Christmas chaos.

Happy New Year, and a new free story on my website.

Earth Flight USA2015 has had some low points, particularly breaking my ankle in the spring and catching a nasty virus during the pre-Christmas preparations.

There have been a lot of high points too though. The big one was that the finalEarth 2788-1600x2400 book in the Earth Girl trilogy, Earth Flight, came out in the USA. I’ve also published three ebook extras in the series. Earth 2788: The Earth Girl Short Stories, Earth and Fire: An Earth Girl Novella, and (sneaking out just before Christmas)  Hera 2781: A Military Short Story.

Earth and Fire 3000x4500Thank you to everyone who has been reading my stories in 2015. Your reviews, ratings, personal messages, and just the knowledge that you were reading the stories created a plethora of other high points for me during the year.

I’ve a host of plans for 2016. Top of the list is not to break any bones, butHERA 2781 EBOOK COMPLETE a lot of book related things should be happening too.
