Delighted to announce that my very short story, Marriages are Made in Heaven, is available (free) on Antipodean SF. This is my first ever story published by someone other than me… Thanks to Ion and Phill.
Delighted to announce that my latest book has just gone up on Amazon.
Qualia is an elderly widow, dying alone in her bedroom. Suddenly, she’s a young housewife in a psychiatrist’s office, explaining how she’s hearing voices in the walls of her house—and how her husband, Pierce, is ignoring her. Then, she meets a friend for coffee. It all seems natural, but it’s not—there’s something wrong with her world…
This novel follows on from Time Aerials and Yesterday Makers but only insofar as those books appear in this story. Some of the characters creep in, too. And others stride across it.
It’s about a marriage, and a time ship, and a couple of dogs. Some adult content pops up, which is new for me. So, hopefully, there’s something for everyone—in little doses (it’s divided into four easily digestible sections). 45,000 words (about 3 hours reading, according to my computer). And it’s only $0.99. And FREE on Amazon Subscription services like Kindle Unlimited. For now.
Thanks for your time!

Transgressions (I read the the paperback) by Phill Berrie built a wonderful world and drew me in. There’s magic(k), but I believed it. The main character is complex, and flawed, and deep. Indeed, all the characters felt real, as if their histories extended well beyond the pages of this book. The story is rich and textured and disturbing, and it drew me along. The pacing sped up towards the end and I wanted more. There’s lots to like, but I particularly enjoyed a very one-sided conversation, and a god in a strange court.
