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.


5.0 out of 5 stars – Refreshingly different, clever and hugely entertaining.

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…
