  What follows is a collection of my writing, or at least what's available at the moment. They're science fiction and fantasy stories that I've been writing, off and on, for some time. They've received quite a bit of positive feedback from readers, so I decided to post them. Love them or loathe them, that's your perogative.

Light on Shattered Water and Human Memoirs are available in their entirity while Godsend is awaiting a sequel to finish it. I'll try to keep the archive up to date and post additions as they become available.

Each story has a brief sample that can be read online, but due to space(or lack of), the rest of the text is stored as plaintext in ZIP archives. Hopefully, if finances or space allow, I'll be able to create proper HTML versions of the stories for online reading.

A word of warning: these aren't bed-time stories. They were intended for mature audiences and contain realistic violence and adult themes. There's nothing here that you won't find in your your high-street bookshop, but if this does offend you, don't read them. Simple, huh?


 

If you do happen to like these stories, then please feel free to drop a little something in the kitty.

While all the stories on this page will remain free, just consider it an incentive to make me update a little more often. Although, with the way things have been going recently, perhaps some form of electrodes would be more effective.

The Third novel in the Life of Riley series.
Politics is a delicate game at the best of times. Playing that game in an alien world where assasination and blackmail are just tools of the trade and the price of failure is war, well, that just makes it more interesting.

Work in progress.
