A PINCH OF HISTORY, A SWIRL OF MYSTERY, A CUPFUL OF ROMANCE...

Hello!

Thanks for dropping in. Most of my books involve history, the paranormal and romance in varying (and varyingly weird!) combinations. They include gay ghostly romances December Roses and Trench Warfare, gay vampire romance Echoes of Blood, and my latest book, gay paranormal romp Ghosts Galore, featuring a haunted manor house and some missing paintings. So whether you like ghosts, vampires, time travel or tentacles, hopefully you'll find something new to read.

GHOSTS GALORE - OUT NOW!

"...one of those charming, offbeat, feel-good books I'll enjoy reading again and again."
Ellie Thomas, author of The Spice of Life

When the Ghosts Galore TV crew come to film at artist Adam’s very haunted house, he thinks he can take the money and let the ghosts do the rest. But things soon start to go wrong. The crew use dodgy tricks; producer Carl refuses to believe in Greystones Hall’s ghosts; and dotty medium Stella accidentally awakens a malevolent spirit with a violent dislike of Adam’s art.

When both Carl and Stella disappear Adam turns to the show’s historian Guy - who has a secret of his own - for help. Together they must solve a centuries-old mystery involving lost paintings, a priest hole, and a death that might have caused all the negative energy in the house. But that’s not all the pair discover, on a night of adventure that also brings unexpected romance...

Ghosts Galore is a sweet, fun, no-sex m/m paranormal romp of a romance which is newly available on Kindle and Kindle Unlimited.
