Lost In Plain Sight:

What if Doctor Strange joined MI5?

My novel, Lost In Plain Sight, is urban fantastic fiction with soul-threatening supernatural crime and “lashings of humour” .

“A magic adventure for grown ups” – Amazon 5 stars

A Magic Circle wizard has been brutally killed on the English south coast. Sam Franklin, Pagoda and Meyra are on the case. As a cat, Pagoda would rather get into the case and have a nap. …The team’s one and a half humans are raring to go. They find ice creams, beer, and a cult of human sacrifice preying on the homeless which doesn’t feature much in the tourist literature. In their journey, they encounter a werewolf with exquisite dental work, a goblin fatale and a sat-nav with serious personality issues. Join them along – and under – the mean streets of Brighton…

This fur-raising adventure will introduce you to the dark corners of our world, where magic works and the monsters often wear nicely tailored suits.

My second, more recent, book is an ultra-ultra-short story collection called Hemingway’s Puzzle: Short But Perfectly Formed.

Little nuggets of tragedy, thrills and comedy – blink and you’ll miss them

Ernest Hemingway won a famous bet. It’s not clear where, or who with, or whether it happened at all. The romantics among us insist it did…

A story in six words. No more. No fewer. Bite size. Does what it says on the tin. Says it quickly…

I have adopted that form and played with it to arrive at a short book of six word stories to enjoy on the Tube between stops, on a bus, anywhere. Just don’t settle down for a long read…

The Four Horsemen arrived. THE END
