The Clockwork Universe - Unpublished
This is the Steampunk follow up to Under a Starlit Sky. As yet unpublished.
In the Clockwork Universe, a world of airships and uneasy alliances, one man struggles to escape an unchanging world.
His father punished him, his mother never understood him, and The Society of New Alchemists rejected him. Twice.
Janus wants more than anything to escape to another world where technology is celebrated, not suppressed, so he invented a machine to do just that. But the Emperor believes technology is ruining the peaceful utopia of the United American Empire and has ordered all new technology destroyed. Ignoring these orders is punishable by death.
That makes Janus the enemy. War rages between the Emperor’s forces and those who want progress, but Janus stays safe in the shadows, hiding behind a vast network of cloned spies who carry out his attacks. But even his steam-powered soldiers and other inventions have little effect, and his actions fall on deaf ears.
Unable to overthrow the Emperor’s iron grip and release the Empire from its self-imposed dark age, Janus’ only recourse is to find a world that appreciates him. To do that, he needs to finish his machine. Unfortunately, the only way to do that is to confront the Emperor himself.
If he fails, he risks death. But, worse, he will be trapped in a decaying world.
A stranger in a strange land might just hold the key to saving everything.
The Stained Glass Heart - Unpublished
This is the Steampunk follow up to The Clockwork Universe.
The lives of four groups of people are intertwined and connected in ways they are not even aware.
An unlikely trio: a poetry teacher, a mad-scientist and a former thief turned doctor, are unexpectedly thrown back together and return to the United American Empire upon hearing strange rumours of a group planning to over throw the Empire.
The Empress has been ruling the Empire 15 long years since the tender age of sixteen with the help of her long time servant and most trusted advisor.
A group of men who call themselves The Elders can see the future, and it is not bright. A storm is brewing.
A motley crew of inventors, all members of the Society of New Alchemy, plot a visit to the Empress that she can't ignore, after their livelihoods are turned upside down when she enacts a new law.
They all have secrets.
Secrets that can shatter lives in an instant.

The Dark and Shadowy Places
This book is a collection of short stories or ‘flash fiction’, inspired mostly by author Chuck Wendig's weekly writing challenges on his Terrible Minds blog. Most of the stories are based on these challenges and can be found on my short story blog, Under A Starlit Sky, with a few unpublished ones thrown in. Now, please, won't you journey into the dark and shadowy places?
Of Concrete and glass - Poetry
We walk a fine line between the light and the dark...
This book contains poems about the beauty of nature: that of the natural world that surrounds us and the cities we live in, as well as human nature. This is contrasted with poems that deal with the heart of darkness that can be found in humanity, and the strange and shadowy aspects within society and ourselves.
This book of poetry started all from a poem I wrote in grade 10 (in 1995). In 2011 I put together these poems into the book you see here and then...forgot about it! Now I've dusted it off and decided to self-publish it. I hope you enjoy it.
