I currently have quite a number of different works of fiction underway. I shall share extracts from these projects here as they progress, and as they stubbornly refused to just go away, then progress they must!
Please follow the links in the menu above to find out more about each exciting project.
Some of the works within my files are just thoughts, some are very rough outlines and some other are in fact collections of several thousand words with plots, arcs, twists, shocks and characters.
There are three definite streams of fiction stories which are forming the more I write. Action/Adventure, Sci-Fi, and High Fantasy.
Adventure stories, those based in the real world with military, criminal and political strands (which is unsurprising given my background).
You can follow a link to ‘The Storm Series’ here.
You can follow a link to ‘Mount Street’ here.
As for Science Fiction I have yet to write more than a few chapters and some short stories of the Sci-Fi genre. My primary story or the best candidate for a possible future novel, maybe even a trilogy, is firmly what would be termed Military Science Fiction or #MilSciFi.
For me one of the draws to this genre is the grand scale and endless possibilities, which gives you a distinct premonition that if you headed off down these paths that many hundreds of thousands of words would be the inevitable result.
You can follow a link to ‘The Shattered Gates’ here.
High Fantasy is the last stream, given my insatiable appetite for all High Fantasy and Sword & Sorcery since I was a child it is equally unsurprising. JRR Tolkien, CS Lewis, Raymond E. Feist and Terry Brooks have a lot to answer for and it nearly goes without saying that Terry Pratchett and GRR Martin are also ever present.
You can follow a link to ‘Under the Mountain’ here.
I have also created a new page for my ‘Short Stories’ here, which I will share here, if and when I am successfully in having them published.
