New release - Islesong series

I'm delighted to announce the release of the third volume in my IsleSong series, The Girl who Swam with Whales. For those who know my books, the links and parallels in this series now become clear as the worlds of Shapeshifter Dragons and the oceanic world of Zhialeiana meet.

Purchase The Girl who Swam with Whales here.

I have deliberately kept the exact timelines off my website and public pages so as not to spoil the surprise ending of this trilogy. Further, it will not surprise you that this volume will be followed by another book to be called Dragons of Sea and Sky, but I have not yet decided exactly how the series/numbering will work as this book will link two of my existing series.

I wish you a wondrous journey with a girl and her magical Whales!

Preorder live - The Girl who Swam with Whales

I'm delighted to announce the forthcoming release of the third book in my bestselling IsleSong series, The Girl who Swam with Whales on July 22nd, 2017.

In this tale Zhialeiana will confront the Sea-Witch - but not all is as it seems! The link between the dragon-worlds of Aranya and Dragonfriend, and the water-world of IsleSong, comes to life in this third volume in a plot twist you will not see coming.

When strength fails, will love prevail?

Betrayed. Hunted by the Whales for the power of her Song. Snatched away from all she holds dear, Zhialeiana must journey to the farthest shores of the World-Sea, where she will confront the ultimate power of the age, the Sea-Witch and her draconic minions.

Forsaking all else to the farewell of life-currents,
My soul’s boundaries expanded,
My grief ne’er sweeter,
Thus, we parted.


Yet, many dark secrets swirl within the life-current of a girl with the power to touch souls. Legends will rise. The darkness will resist. Ten thousand leagues of uncrossable ocean separate Zhialeiana from her destiny. At the end, she will suffer for the crimes of all humanity. Yet what is her true nature? Why are the great mountains riven, and the oceans exposed to the dominion of Dragons? What is the enigma of the ancient Queen of Fire and Eternity?

Nothing is as it seems. Only a journey into the very soul of darkness will reveal all, and in the crucible of tragedy and fate, Zhialeiana’s love will be put to the ultimate test.

Thus the worlds of Islesong and Dragon joined together, and Water and Cloud became one.

Swim with Zhialeiana into a new adventure as she comes to grips with her destiny!

Another day, another new release! The Night of the Hyenas (Shioni #6)

"Down, you mangy curs!" Ah, that has to be Shioni taking on Kalcha's hyena-men in the 6th book of the Shioni of Sheba series, released today! Full of surprises, secrets and the magic of ancient Ethiopia, this is one book you won't want to miss. Even if it comes with scabby hyenas. Available on Kindle to purchase or free on Kindle Unlimited.

Hyenas are of course a classic choice of villain for African stories, for good reason. They slink, they stink, and they are very dangerous indeed. A hyena's bite is over 5 times stronger than your bite. While they prefer their meals dead or at least dying, dining niceties will not stop a hungry hyena.

Kalcha has been busy brewing up a new set of nasty surprises for Shioni and her friends in this 6th volume of my bestselling Shioni of Sheba series, a truly African adventure set in the heart of the Simien Mountains of Ethiopia. Old friends and old worlds collide in this volume as we move closer to finding out who Shioni really is and where she comes from. I think you'll enjoy the surprises I have in store for you in this volume and the next, which is planned to complete Shioni's tale.

Giants? Check.
Dragons lurking? Check.
Adventure? Double-check with strawberry sauce on top.
Magic? Of course!

What more are you waiting for? Saddle up, because I have a story for you!

Whisper Alive! New surprise release ...

Announcing Whisper Alive, my new surprise release! Discover the power of a Whisper. When an evil warlock conjures his own nemesis, sparks will fly! Available on Kindle now.
“Malevolence ignited her embryonic awareness. An inchoate, unspoken cry echoed from the depths of her soul: I am alive!” Conjured by the sadistic Warlock Sanfuri, Whisper faces a stark choice. Run with his message, or die. Beaten. Maimed. Bound by the Warlock’s unbreakable magical imperative, Whisper is forced to navigate the tortuous pathways of a labyrinth twenty miles deep, riven by Dragon-infested canyons and scorched by sunstrike. Now, she must use her unique Whisper skills to forge a path across the Sundering’s devastation and blaze a trail to Arbor, the City of Blue – dooming its Human population to the onslaught of Sanfuri’s Dragon army. Dying would solve everything. Or, she could refuse to be silenced, and make Sanfuri regret leaving a Whisper alive. Whisper is a magical enigma of yore, and the last of her kind. Runner. Wayfinder. Saboteur extraordinaire. Snarky defier of evil Warlocks and Dragons. Armed with little but a never-say-die attitude and the quickest paws in the canyons, Whisper chooses to run for her life. For all life. Thus, the legend is born. Whisper Alive!

Ocean fantasy - new release! (Islesong #2)

Pirates, Sea-Dragons and oceanic fantasy!

It's new release time again and I'm delighted to present for your reading pleasure, The Girl who Loved the Whales, the second volume in my Islesong series. Now, please remember that the first volume is in its second edition - you need to read the last 3 chapters of The Girl who Sang with Whales (at least) or you may be confused. Please update your Kindle.

This tale is a journey from darkness into light, a formative and ultimately beautiful revelation of Zhialeiana's background and origins, and features another gorgeous cover from Victorine Lieske.

Swim away with The Girl who Loved the Whales today!

(Sneaky confession: I have already finished drafting book 3 as well - that's coming soon too)

Singer of Sea-Dragons. A terrible secret possesses her soul. Yet, the journey into darkness has barely begun. For the powers of nightsong, of dread and terror and pain, have laid claim upon the life-current of a girl with a matchless gift.

’Twas the current of terror we sailed that daysong,
Like a Sea-Dragon’s heart was its pulse.


Myriad dangers lurk across the long leagues. Pirates. Treacherous Battlecats. A Hunter from the Deep and a city besieged by Sea-Dragons. The combative Bardsong of a mighty War-Titan–what are his wicked plans for her? With strength born of love, Zhialeiana must conquer all.

Now, her journey has begun. Betrayed at every turn, can the Girl who Sang with Whales learn to sing a new Song? Can she save the Whales she loves?
