    Reavers

    Reavers were something I developed as a way to explore the darker side of time; what happens at the end of your timeline. Death is not an easy subject to deal with, no one likes to see a character die – except for George RR Martin who seems to take incredible pleasure in offing his […]

  • Book 2 – The crafting begins

    Maelstrom

    There is something daunting about finishing the first draft. For me, it’s the possibly the easiest part of the work, maybe because I’m following my outline (or not) and basically letting the story go where it will. That’s the best way I have found to get the through it. I’m not saying it’s by any […]

  • The name of the second book

    book 2

    So with the first book published and picking up five-star reviews and great feedback, I can now settle down and get on with writing the second.

It is a passing remark that the Colonel makes during a drunken evening: They both drank then to ‘an interesting death’ and sank into quiet contemplation of their own mortality and those they had […]

  • Great Review from Doctor Who Online

    Review by Doctor Who Online

    The time lords over at DoctorWho-Online have recently reviewed the Anachronist and had some rather pleasant things to say about it: Anachronist is the perfect blend of History and Science Fiction with intelligent plot devices, rich characters and more time travel than you can shake a stick at. In fact, this is a story that […]

  • The Frontier – precipice of time

    Frontier

    The point at which the future becomes the present is known as the Frontier. A precipice overlooking the unknown future, it holds a strange fascination for the younger members of the Oblivion Order who are drawn to the temporal forces that weave the possible into reality. They travel through the past to hang out near the edge […]
