Now at long last the fourth book in the series has finally been published. So for those of you who have been waiting for this, here it is
There was once a god… a dragon god!
He was dying, but 800 years ago he was to leave his legacy, power and secrets to a single mortal man… !
Now, 800 years later, will the Silent Blade ever manage to bring the dragon god back to power… and is that a good thing…?
You will only ever find out by reading this first instalment of the Silent blade Chronicles.
I have noticed lately that the majority of traffic through my blog comes from the United States of America…. and of course you are all very welcome.
So, for all you fantasy readers in the US of A I am posting a special link to the Amazon.com site where you will find my first book “A Sword for Hire”. This is the first in a 5 part Chronicle, which deals with the adventures of four very special people, ( as well as their friends and family ). I deliberately wrote this long tale for all age groups to enjoy. It does not contain any brutal violence, or graphic sex scenes… and you might think this would be rather boring…!
But it is not boring in any way.
Far from it, in fact. The Silent Blade Chronicles is a tale of friendship, with a strain of gentle and subtle humour running throughout the script. As the story unfolds the reader begins to discover many strange and wonderful facts about the world in which my heroes live… and behind all of this an even stranger fact about the history of the worlds’ magic users begins to emerge. But by the end of each book can you guess what is about to happen next…?
Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you…
Happy reading everyone
Being an author means more than just sitting staring at a screen wondering what your characters are going to do next. One of the side effects of this job is being in the public eye and having to deal with interviews. The latest trend is to do these interviews on-line, and have them cast out on the internet for the world to read. My latest interview was with fellow author and reviewer Katrina Jack. Now you might think that answering this barrage of questions on-line rather than in person would be easy… well it is not as easy as it seems! To begin with it is important to structure the answers in such a way that they not only fulfil the question, but grab the attention of any possible on-line audience. The phrasing of these answers will also reflect on the author’s own personal writing style, and again this will reflect on his/her own published work.
Anyhow, this is now my fourth on-line interview, so I am getting used to it now… and here is the link to Katrina’s blog, for you all to have a read.
Happy reading everyone.
I just Thought I would reblog this for you all
Without books the world would suffer a serious lack of knowledge. Books can be many things: informative, relaxing, fun, and entertaining. Many people ( myself included ) have collections of books, proudly displayed in cabinets and on shelves in their homes. But now we have entered an age of the “ebook”, where literally thousands of books can be stored on a small, compact device.
I must admit that when I first heard of these “ereaders” I baulked at the idea, and said “These things will never catch on!”
SO I was wrong!
The modern ereader ( kindle, KOBO etc ) have now become “the” way to collect, and read books. And yes, I am now the proud owner of a kindle.
And what an amazing piece of equipment it is. Now I can carry an entire library around with me, and read whenever, or wherever I want to. Of course…

Many years ago I had a dream, a very special dream… a dream which lives with me even to this day. The dream showed me the birth of a powerful dragon god. For many years I had no idea why this dream came to me, or what it meant. Yet it remained in my mind, as clearly as the first moment I experienced it.
Eventually that dream was to become the seed of an idea, which gradually germinated into a tale of epic proportions… surprising even me in its scale!
This was the birth of the Silent Blade Chronicles…!
Happy reading everyone
