I’m writing this blog to share some of my writing. You’ll find stories, poems, reviews and updates on my books. I hope you enjoy reading these as much as I’ve enjoyed writing them. Do leave comments and I’ll try and reply.
This is the story of Desdemona, the dragon without any friends. Will she learn how to make friends? Will she find out who is important to her? Here’s the first page to read.
Once there lived a fine dragon, whose scales were blood red. She stomped over the land making the earth tremble and she gobbled up tree branches and shrubs as she moved.
Sometimes when the town of Wrex was quiet and all the little people were fast asleep she would pop her head over the city walls and roar.
Then the people would run out of their homes screaming and screeching. Desdemona, for that was her name, would watch the little people running in all directions, frantically trying to find out where the noise was coming from, and she would laugh.
Desdemona is only available to read in paperback format (at the moment) and is £8.99 from Amazon. Here’s the link.

Lucy is sent to Wales to visit her artistic cousin Bethan. She accidently comes across a clue to a kidnapping and from then on starts to investigate. There is a good sense of place in this book and the characters are engaging, with Lucy being addicted to her smart phone and Bethan having a knowledge of art and her part of Wales.
This is a short book, with a fast pace and a good plot and meant for young teenagers. I thoroughly recommend this book as a great read.
It’s available from Amazon for £3.90 or £1.99 kindle edition.
I shall be at the Llandeilo Book Fair this weekend (29 and 30 April), so if you’re nearby, pop into the Civic Hall and come and say hello. I’d love to see you there. The book fair is part of the Hwyl Llandeilo Lit Fest, with lots of activities, readings and competitions. Check out the link to find out more.
The Mermaid is a book of short stories for adults. I’ve revised the cover and used one of my pictures. I think it’s an improvement on the previous cover and hope you do as well, but if you have suggestions to improve it further, let me know. I’ve also re-edited the book and changed the size of the book to a standard one.
The story, The Mermaid, won third prize in The Chudleigh Phoenix competition in 2011. Sadly that competition is not running at the moment.
I have a new book of short stories in progress. The Mermaid is a mixture of a variety of genre. I’m now debating with myself, unless someone else joins in, whether to stick to one genre for the next book. What do you think?
You can see my books here. This new edition is £7.00 for the paperback and £1.90 for the kindle e-book edition. Happy reading.
