Paranormal Excerpt

‘Kerry’s world had faded to sunlight-dappled shades of green. She felt as if the woodland was hugging her tight. It was always her most favourite place to go for a walk to relax.’

‘A white sailing skiff flashed through his mind, severed by a bolt of lightning behind his eyes. He remembered the storm and the rogue wave that capsized his vessel. There was nothing else until now.’
“Hmm, that’s so good!” He drank for another two minutes. “I’ll make a camp at the forest fringe to watch for boats. I can drink all I need and hunt the rabbits…” Harry planned aloud, as if he were giving himself orders. “Yes - I can survive here. Erm, I’ll need fires for signalling as well. I—”
Marie-Clair was still there... lurking... following in the shadows. From the bushes she leapt, howling like a banshee.’

Fantasy Excerpt

‘Ethan felt as if he were drowning; his blood pounded in his ears, he coughed, spluttered, and fought for air - he was done for.’

Romance Excerpt

“Will you trust me?” she held out her hand.
Ah well, if I’m to die today, may as well have an adventure,’ he decided.

Mystery Excerpt

“Honestly, I’d rather wear a coat of bacon and enter a wolves’ den.” Skoll blew his cold-reddened nose and stepped forward. All the way along the jetty, his eyes roved the planks for clues. The birches on the island still held a few bronzy leaves on their skeletal limbs. Autumn was just a month ago.

Mendes let out an animalistic growl. He was foaming at the mouth as he took a devilish step forward.

“Yeah! Come on, freakshow, shoot me!” Skoll beckoned, his teeth gritted with fury.
