The Curiosity shop is a heartwarming tale about a man and his dog. And a cat. Club Valhalla and the sequel Timeless are exciting time travel stories. Other stories include more of the mystical and amazing.
Note that several of these books have been bought and are now published by Montlake, an Amazon imprint. As a result their prices are somewhat higher than the prices of my self-published books and they are only available through Amazon.

While the technology of the wars had changed the face of Europe, some things stayed the same; the tempestuous Scottish coast and the surrounding sea remained a place of unquenchable magic and mystery.

By joining the water, those tears completed a ritual, and that ritual summoned a prince. He came for Hexy — and for something she didn’t know she had stolen.
