Creating A story together.

Imagine: after a busy morning at work you go to lunch. You grab a bite from the café down the street. While your food is being prepared you start to get that wonderful tingly excited feeling. Its nearly time to drift away to another universe. Nearly time to forget about the stresses of work and life and just lose yourself in a good story!

You scurry back to where you take you take your break. Somewhere peaceful, maybe a scenic park bench or perhaps a cozy canteen at work. You go through your food preparation ritual. Get comfy and off you go. Into a world of imagination and fantasy.

Since the beginning of time humans have been captivated by a good story. They contain our deepest desires, fears and hold truths we struggle to tell in any other way…

We all love a series. Game of thrones, Breaking Bad, House of Cards (Pick your poison). Part of what keeps us so enthralled is that we get our story piece by piece. They leave us guessing what could possibly happen next and have us awake in bed as we contemplate all sorts of wild theories.

It’s this piece by piece format that I have decided to use with my novels. Instead of giving you a great heavy tome to work your way through all at once, I give you each story piece by piece. My aim is to give all my wonderful subscribers some bite size reads to look forward to each week.

Are you someone who’s always looking for something new to read?

For all avid readers, lovers of a fun story, and people looking for something to do when they only have a spare half an hour here and there. This is a fantastic Patreon page for you to get involved in.

Get your weekly does of escapism when you become a subscriber. Get a consistent stream of imaginative work and access to a growing library that will keep you enthralled and engaged.

Each of my episode is divided up into posts which are then linked straight on to the next post, so you can go through the stories at your own pace. No getting overwhelmed with super long chapters when you don't have hours to spend reading.

I provide an alternative and much more cost effective solution to your reading than ordering books from Amazon at $10 or more each.

Genres I write in:
-Fantasy.
-Urban fantasy.
-Adventure comedy.
-Christian romance.

From as little as $1 a month, you can access my entire library of work, get weekly updates from the new stories delivered right to your inbox, and have a say in the development of ongoing episodes.

That’s right, if you share your ideas with me, they may end up featuring as the story develops!

“But I’m quite fussy with what I read, how do I know I will like what you write?”. Excellent question! Luckily, I have the first two episodes of my story “Sonova Orc” available for you to read completely FREE!

So, click the link below to give it a read right now! If you like it, then it would be great to welcome you to the community and give you exciting stories to sink your teeth into.

Thanks!

FREE FOR THE PUBLIC: Sonuva Orc! Episode 01: It wasn't Me! (Completed)

How much trouble can a half-orc, half-human child raised by two loving dads get into?

A lot.

The child of two great warriors, Deiter Rankov has every right to be an angsty, angry half-orc who despises the world. Fortunately for the world, there are few people as happy and as optimistic as Deiter. No matter what the trouble he will see it through to the end.

Trained by his Orcish father to live and survive in even the harshest wilds, and trained by his Human father to navigate the harshest wilds of civilization Deiter grew up in a odd but loving household. With his dads called away by the collegiate, the conclave of wizards ruling civilization as he knows it, Deiter's been left alone to while away the time house sitting.

Of course Deiter's never been especially good at sitting still.

When trouble comes to town and the mayor calls for heroes, Deiter's happy to answer the call. He's not the only one to answer however, and true heroes are rarely solo acts. The crew he finds himself with have their own crazy quirks.

Just how crazy can one adventure get?

FREE FOR THE PUBLIC: Sonuva Orc! Episode 02: It's a Bird! It's a Dog! It's an... angel? (Completed)

The first adventure didn't go so well. They lost one of their members, but at least they managed to save Xavros and they even made a new friend.

When Deiter and Company get back to Tinisville they are shocked to find that the villagers have made friends with what seems to be an angel with the face of a dog. It might make everyone happy to have a glowing golden celestial creature around, but what happens when evil creatures come in and carry the angel off?

Well, the half-orc and team have to go to the rescue of course!

FREE FOR THE PUBLIC: Sonuva Orc! Episode 03: The Mad Mayor of Tinisville (Active)

Deiter and company lost a good friend, almost lost another friend, saved a celestial being from the heavens, and are finally taking a well deserved rest while they wait for their rewards to be decided on by the town's Mayor.

There's only one problem... The Mayor isn't who they think, and he isn't terribly inclined to see the little party progress further. What's a half-orc to do?

PATRONS ONLY: Hell or High Water, Episode 01: Who Am I? (Active)

Three thousand years have passed since the Soulforged walked the earth of Tristorial, their demise, history, and technology lost to the sands of time and covered by the great shroud of fog that still covers a sizable area of the eastern sea of the world.

Or that's what everyone thought.

A seismic shift causes the lava rock of an island called Whiteharbour to break apart and reveal a single pod that escaped the destruction of the Soulforged, a single survivor of the once great civilization sleeping unaware of the passage of time. When he wakes, Phi Alpha Ipsilon Theta wakes without his memories in a world that has marched far beyond his people's destruction.

All he has with him is the pod that kept him safe, and the book he instinctively knows is important. All he remembers of his past is his designation, Phi, Alpha, Upsilon, Theta, and that he was made to serve his god, The Maker.

Faced with no solid memories of his past, but certain his god remains with him, he sets out on a journey to discover the world around him and uncover his past.

PATRONS ONLY: The Sea Witch's Curse (Completed)

In the world of Faetalia there are rules that everyone has to play by. In the kingdom of Nixla those rules are cast in deep tradition and breaking them means death.

A freak to her people due to the pale white of her skin, the dark black of her hair, and the seemingly colourless scales of her fins, Selene's temper hasn't helped her make many friends. Add the weight of her father's sins and she's a prime suspect when things start to go wrong. After all, who would believe that the cursed daughter of the Mistwalker would use her powers only for good?

Then again, looks can be deceiving.

Tradition has been broken and the evil responsible is growing stronger, hidden in plain sight. If Selene can't unravel the web and expose the corruption, all of Nixla will suffer the consequences.

The best secrets are worth killing for.

PATRONS ONLY: Rekindled: A Love Story For Married People (Completed)

Romance dies with marriage. - Lie.
Love stories are only for unmarried people. - Lie.
Real love doesn't last. - Lie.
No matter how hard it gets, real love is a decision you make every day. - Truth.

Things aren't perfect, they aren't even in the ballpark of what Lindsey or Harold had planned for their future, but that doesn't mean their love isn't worth fighting for. Sometimes things need to change and it's the conclusions they come to that will dictate their future together. Or apart.

Rekindled is a messy, frustrating, sometimes hilarious, sometimes heartbreaking, love story between two people who love each other but who get lost in life's up and downs and have to work to find each other again.

PATRONS (25$+) ONLY: The Inheritance (Completed)

It was just supposed to be a drug that helped him be more aware of his surroundings. It wasn't supposed to make his sight something supernatural.

Justin was all set to be an ordinary collage kid studying engineering as soon as he was allowed to declare a major. He'd always known what he wanted to do, but when a friend convinces him to join a special drug trial, Justin's whole world is turned upside-down.

Now he's seeing things he's not supposed to be seeing. His best friend keeps bursting into flame, he's being stalked by people who look like dead bodies with animal skins pulled over their hideous frames and a secret organization is clamoring for him to join their ranks.

He'd better figure this sight thing out soon, because the things he's seeing aren't all that eager to be seen, and for those behind the veil it's kill or be killed.
