Angharad, Jin and Tsuyoshi have survived four months in Zapville. While Tsuyoshi struggles with his difficult relationships, Angharad struggles with complicated attractions and her tense friendship with Jin. New tests from their mysterious overlord lead to new encounters and strange bedfellows. But when things take a darker and more desperate turn, not everyone they know will survive.
Sick of the small life imposed on her, sixteen year old Angharad is seeking escape. When she wakes up on the other side of the Gate what she gets instead is a tighter prison than she’s ever known. With no way out and no way to find her mysterious jailer, she finds herself relying on the people trapped with her: Tsuyoshi, an angry Canadian art student, well-meaning Josephine, the secretive Dr Yeoh, and Jin, a child soldier. But in this technological trap beyond anything she’s ever known not everyone is who they seem, and even Angharad is unsure what is true about her own life.
Three tales of the awkward conversations you could have if monsters and space aliens were part of your every day life.
A young woman reconnects with her high school boyfriend, no matter how much she tries to avoid it. A concerned friend argues about the wisdom of romancing a vampire. A space pilot watches her boss suffer through talking with a diplomat.
It’s been a while, but I’ve finally released my personal anthology of short fiction:
A young woman looks back on a grandparent and the nature of stories. Robots question the meaning of their existence. An old woman time travels through memory. A young man leaves a party and questions what he wants from life. Thirty-somethings talk about chemistry over brunch.

My new ebook is up on Amazon.
TWO FRIENDS DECIDE TO START A BAND AND YOU WON’T BELIEVE WHAT HAPPENS NEXT!
In 2011 Wesley and Uri formed a band, dragged in two of their best friends, and set out to see the world together on the adventure of a lifetime. Along the way they discover the wondrous effects of ill-advised drug use and poor sexual choices. By 2016 they’ve gone their separate ways and Wesley can only look back. Is it Wesley’s drinking that comes between them? Is it the arrival of beautiful, normal Gloria and the promise of a life outside the band? Or is it the mysteries Uri clings to that threaten everything they’ve built between them?
This is a story of the journey between those two points, between hopeful youth and bitter-sweet experience, and all the mistakes people make along the way.
I’ve almost reached the end of my Christmas and New Year holiday (though not quite yet) so I thought I’d pop in to say hello to everyone before I go back to regular updates.
First, I’ve added a little more information to the site and re-jigged the menu to make things more clear and usable.
Second, The Rhinoceros Conspiracy Live is now on Scribd.
Third, a dear friend has a book out now with Less Than Three Press here – check it out now if you’re interested in lesbian fantasy novels.
I’m madly writing the next instalment of the In Tune series and I’ve got the beginnings of a novella in the works, so I hope to have something for you all to read very soon.
Sorry for the radio silence here lately. I’ve been flat out at work in the lead up to the holidays.
But you’ll be pleased to know that The Rhinoceros Conspiracy Live is now up for pre-order on Apple Barnes and Noble/Nook and Kobo. (Unless you aren’t pleased but, ey, can’t win them all.) This also means that the remaining time you can read it via Kindle Unlimited is, well, limited – so if you were wanting to do that, get on it. By the way, there’s also a paperback version there if that’s what you prefer (come, read the book that critics are calling ‘definitely printed on paper’).
The paperback edition of The Rhinoceros Conspiracy Live is now available to buy, if you prefer your books on real paper.
