Demon Gate

Michael Mortain inherits more than just wealth when his uncle dies in a freak accident. He also takes on Friedrich’s magic, a rare power coveted by the insane witch, Morga, and her pet gamora. In a world of darkness and witchcraft Michael soon finds himself fighting for his life and that of the woman he loves, whilst evading the clutches of the inquisition in a bloody clash of magic and religion.

In the sleepy village of Richstein Michael Mortain finds himself the new master of Driesden House, and more, he discovers the charms of the local apothecarist, Annarina Anstein. But not all is as tranquil as it seems and Michael's new life is turned upside down with the arrival of a mysterious witch hunter and the widow of a recently slain merchant.

Michael's soon finds himself the target of an insane witch and her unwilling demon, but can the White Coven help him unlock the secrets of Uncle Friedrich's power, escape the clutches of the inquisition and save Annarina before Morga can unleash the forces of hell?

Breathing life into an old tale

Ok, this is what I'm working on at the moment. It's dark fantasy with a bit of steam punk thrown in for good measure. I first started writing this about eight years ago. The first draft was horrible. The story and plot was there but the writing skills just hadn't developed.

A couple of years ago I rewrote it, all 120k of it, and now I've dusted it off and started editing it. I've liked this story for a long time and think it deserves telling.

Anyway, it's not far off now and, between bouts of editing, I've created a cover for it.



And a bit of blurb, definitely subject to change:

The Black Cat Cleaning Co.


The end of times is nigh and Aristel must rescue a fairy maiden from the great dragon to stop it happening, but he doesn't reckon with falling through reality and landing in a council flat in Little Rhampton.

Meanwhile, Kevin has just lost his job, but things seem to be turning a little brighter when a witch flicks a bit of good luck his way. He comes into money and meets the girl of his dreams, only to find that witches never do anything for nothing and Sally isn't quite what she seems.

The local council is planning to let developers knock down Carswell House and build a housing estate, and Mac the Hat is behind all the dodgy dealing to make it happen. Affordable housing is all very well, but not when a gate between worlds is at stake. There's more to Carswell House than just dry rot and rising damp and Kevin is recruited to help the witches stop the development and get Aristel home.

In a world of magic and mystery entwined with the everyday, mundane reality that we dwell in and with a cast of immortal druids, demonic cats, flying vacuums, witches and wannabes, The Black Cat Cleaning Co. pits good against evil, cunning against stupidity and everyone against the clock to save the world from greedy pen pushers.

The Black Cat Cleaning Co. is available now from Smashwords

...and breathe.

I've been a bit quiet lately. I've been busy writing, lots. Especially the last couple of weeks. I've finished the first draft of a novella and I'm currently doing a short.

I've got a bit of proof reading and some editing to do yet, but it won't be long before the next book is released. I already have the cover art done:


I'll leave you to guess what it's about until I get a blurb done:)
