The Spartacus Prophecy
The real life of Spartacus was far more complex than Hollywood would have you believe.
For the uninitiated, there really was a Spartacus and a prophecy and no body of the famous gladiator was ever found.
Commencing at the final battle of the third servile war, the story covers an epic journey of one man’s struggle against oppression. Spanning two continents, the fight, flight, love and betrayal across the ancient landscapes, form the backdrop to this compelling novel.
Originally published in paperback by Legend Press/New Generation.
paperback review: "…This thoroughly gripping tale grasps the reader’s attention with a clenched fist and holds it throughout. The author’s obvious enthusiasm, careful research and detailed knowledge of this historical setting are deftly woven into the writing. Well developed characters and subtle attention to dialogue combine to create a palpable realism that allows us to be comfortably led through the plot. Consequently, The Spartacus Prophecy could easily break the boundaries of its genre and attract a much wider appeal…"

Sunshine & Shadows
A boy, a girl, a beach, a mystery. Could there be magic in the air? Sunshine & Shadows is a 'paranormal' young adult contemporary adventure set on the beautiful and enchanting West Wales coast. The author has deftly woven wisps of Celtic mythology in a deceivingly simple but beguiling storyline centred in and around two teenage misfits and their extraordinary adventures.
