Nick’s Gallery

Publisher: Publish Britannica

ISBN: 1-4137-2186-9

Nick is dying. Barney spends much of his time keeping him company, helping him to lead an almost normal life and sharing his carefully guarded secret. The two boys often go down to the old harbour to look at the boats and take photographs.

Barney finds it hard watching his friend getting weaker and weaker. And then there are the other problems. He worries about his relationship with his first real girlfriend. He worries about his schoolwork. He is under pressure to perform well as a county swimming champion. And he needs a part-time job.

Everything seems to be working out – just – when what he has most been dreading happens. All the other things which could also go wrong do so spectacularly. Then there is a strange-shaped room, some ham and mustard sandwiches and a few conversations with a wise old sailor.

The Prophecy

Publisher: The Red Telephone

ISBN: 978-0-955791-08-6 (paperbook) 978-1-907335-12-9 (Kindle)

The Prophecy is the first part of the Peace Child trilogy.

Kaleem Malkendy is different – and, on Terrestra, different is no way to be.

Everything about Kaleem marks him out from the rest: the blond hair and dark skin, the humble cave where he lives and the fact that he doesn’t know his father. He’s used to unwelcome attention, but even so, he’d feel better if some strange old man didn’t keep following him around.

Then the man introduces himself and begins to explain the Babel Prophecy – and everything in Kaleem’s life changes forever.

Babel

Publisher: The Red Telephone

ISBN: 978-1-907335-10-5 (paperbook) 978-1-907335-13-6 (Kindle)

Babel is the second part of the Peace Child trilogy.

Kaleem has found his father and soon finds the love of his life, Rozia Laurence, but he is still not comfortable with his role as Peace Child. He also has to face some of the less palatable truths about his home planet: it is blighted by the existence of the Z Zone, a place where poorer people live outside of society, and by switch-off, compulsory euthanasia for a healthy but aging population, including his mentor, Razjosh.

The Babel Tower still haunts him, but it begins to make sense as he uncovers more of the truth about his past and how it is connected with the problems n the Z Zone.

Kaleem knows he can and must make a difference, but at what personal cost?

Devils, Demons and Werewolves

Publisher: Bridge House

ISBN: 978-1-907335-08-2

Devils, demons, werewolves and other creatures of the night don’t have to be scary. In fact, at times they can be downright funny. They have heir fair share of the type of problems we humans have – pesky monthly cycles, others out to get them, a lack of what they need and a surfeit of what they don’t want. They’re not immune to recessions either.

There are plenty of moments in this little collection that make you hold your breath, make you want to lock the door and turn the lights up and make you wish you hadn’t stayed home alone.

With a little bit of help from her scatty, wannabe teenager, Auntie Vee, she even seems to be doing better than her supercool friend Kate who never has a problem attracting boys.

Then she loses her nerve.

Even so, whatever she does, she can’t get away from how much she fancies Ami. So there are fights, tears, pantomime rehearsals... then things begin to change.

Fibbin’ Archie

Publisher: Chapeltown Books

ISBN: 978-0-9568680-7-7 (Kindle)

Archie has quite a reputation as a practised fibber. Normally his lies are harmless but as time goes by they begin to get him into more and more trouble. They lose him his girlfriend, and bizarrely, his hearing as his ears begin to react in a very strange way every time he is less than truthful. Giving honest opinions isn’t enough. Deep truth is called for. But finding that isn’t easy. Some truths are very hard to face. Then numbers become interesting, too.

Fibbin’ Archie, is, however, more than the story of disenchanted young man. It is also a writing experiment based on a fascinating number series.
