Josiah Stubb: The Plains of Abraham - Now Available For Pr-order!

My latest offering - the third and final book of the Josiah Stubb trilogy, "The Plains of Abraham."
Due to be released at the end of November, available to pre-order now!

"From the best-selling author of The Adventures of Charlie Smithers … comes another action adventure in all out war.
With the fall of Louisbourg, at last the gateway to Quebec lies open to the British. As the summer of 1759 looms, one last push is required to topple the capital of New France, and the young officer, Josiah Stubb, and the grenadiers of the 51st, will be part of it.
However, unlike Louisbourg, the Citadel of Quebec is a natural fortress, and the might of New France has been concentrated to defend her. The British are outnumbered two to one, leaving the stage uncertain. Much depends upon courage and discipline…and of course, that most enigmatic factor of all, luck.
This is a tense melee without mercy and a riveting historical battle with far reaching consequences."

I'm Somewhat Eclectic

Throughout my writing career my stories refuse to be pigeonholed into a certain genre. For example, these novellas are my last two releases. I think it all depends on how I wake up in the morning.
The Little Mouse:
 #1 Bestseller!

"From the creator of Charlie Smithers comes an endearing story, reminiscent of fairy tale classics of yesteryear. Filled with enchantment and meaning, this charming tale appeals to young and old alike, portraying how even the least among us can change the world."
Never Taken Road:
 The earth has been stricken by the Super Plague, eradicating humanity from the face of the planet … all except for one man, and one woman. In a now primitive world, will they be able to save our species from extinction? Should they?

New Release - Never Taken Road

When my friend, Diana Milne was in the hospital I sent her a story every day to keep her entertained. This novella was one of the last ones she read, and I think she liked it just a little more than any of the others. Sadly Diana passed away soon after. On that same day I asked Wild Wolf to take the story on, and they agreed. It's a way of saying, thank you for having been my friend, Diana, this one's for you.

The Little Mouse - A Dedication

For the longest time Helen's granddaughters, Evie and Iris, had been asking to read some of my work. This prompted me to dig into my collection of stories to find something that was suitable, and I came up with "The Little Mouse." In turn, the interest that this generated on social media was so overwhelming that it prompted me to look into getting it published, and the rest is history. It seemed only natural to show my gratitude by dedicating the book to these fine young ladies, because it was they who had got the ball rolling in the first place. Yesterday, when the paperback was released, Evie's nan showed her the dedication page. Apparently she was pleased because, using Helen's Facebook account, she sent me a photo, and this endearing message:

"This is Evie typing! i love the book and i love my name being in the book and now I'm famous!!!!!"

 


 Moments like this don't come along every day, but when they do they make it all worthwhile. You could ask Evie I suppose, but, what with her new found fame and all, I'm afraid you'll have to call and make an appointment. ;)
