I decided it was time to update this page.
Aside from the Light Beyond the Storm Chronicles series I now have several anthology pieces, including some poetry. You’ll find links, artwork and announcements elsewhere on the site but here they are collated. The short stories are varied – Tales of Erana features mythic style tales set in the world of Erana – the world of The Light Beyond the Storm Chronicles but many of the other stories are fantasy or horror and unrelated to the novels. They range from tales of the Kitchen Imps; a mischievous species which live among us and cause mayhem whenever they can, to a dark story of Jack the Ripper, to vampires, to a curious and slightly mystified god.
Short stories present a different challenge from novels – after all getting a tale into a few thousand words, drawing in the reader and developing the characters can be tricky.
