Forgive my long absence from blogging dear readers, I do not forsake you, I only turn my eye to other ways of pleasing you. Since finishing the novel The Girl Who Came From The Moon, I have been working hard on a new juvenile fiction project, tentatively titled Rebecca Ravenwood, The Feylight. A contemporary Arthurian legend. I find myself writing a character very different from myself, and it is both fascinating and challenging to write from such a perspective. The titular character is not those things that I am, a straight white male of the age of majority. She is a gay British-Indian teenager.

Self publishing is a difficult career, if you don't promote, no one will know your work exists, but advertising is expensive, and I don't have the capital.

Click the links below, or the cover art to BUY MY BOOKS and please review them on Amazon and Goodreads, reviews from users like you matter more than you know, and I would love to hear what you think. Happy New Year!
