Here you’ll find my novels, collections of short stories, art books, and narrative poetry. More will be showcased as more of my back catalogue is added.
Swell is compelling and provocative, telling of innocence betrayed, of obsession and desire, of a mother’s unrelenting control of her only son even from beyond the grave. It’s a tale for the 21st Century yet the prose transports the sense of a grainy black and white movie, a Romance Noir, with its stark imagery and poignant comic drama drenched with connotation.
There will be times when you question even your own morality.
Tick Tock ~ Rollo Jenks and his beautiful wife, Yenka, live an idyllic life. They are in love, so he believes, and they want for nothing.
Based on a true life story; one balmy summer’s night he suffers three heart attacks after which, his life-threatening disease makes him confront aspects of his life he kept buried from friends and the close-knit community in which he now lives.
When all is said and done, the question he must confront alone is whether he can live with the knowledge that he murdered a young boy in cold blood.
Tick Tock will be published by Barre Meunier in March 2018
Ovular Curios ~ A celebration of life’s diversity in narrative verses that could quite easily kill, cure or pervert. However, the choice of poison is yours.
From a collection of 20 poetic pieces:
Peggy explores love that never was in the 19th Century juxtaposed against the fascination of modern youth with casual sex.
In Ovular Curios, enduring a supermarket squirming with base life, it is there, at the culmination of a journey, I was compelled by something far greater than either of us to ask whether you would tell me if I had died.
Otters did it speaks of maturing love.
Ovular Curios will be published by Barre Meunier in July 2018
