My apologies to anyone who went to ENCOM to see me. I had to cancel my plans at the last minute due to a logistical nightmare. It was a shame as I was looking forward to the new venue. My next show will be the Stars of Time event in Weston-Super-Mare on the 2nd May.My first foray in children's literature is now complete. RUIN and the Dragon Princess is currently out being edited and trialled with…

I had a great day today (5th March) when I returned to the school of my mispent youth - Wadham in Crewkerne. I was invited back to speak on World Book Day about my writing. It didn't seem that much had changed since I was there apart from the students seemed better behaved. I hope that my talk went down OK, some students sat in bemuzed silence but others asked interesting questions. I'm sure there…

It was a very grey day when we headed North to Telford on Friday but the Midlands Comic Con was as lively as ever. It didn't seem quite as busy as previous years perhaps it had someting to do with Valentines Day?! A big thanks to all those who came to the stand, it was great to speak with you all. The question from seasoned fans was - 'When is Ruin - Book 4 out?' Hopefully Summer this year. I…

This weekend I will be at the Midlands Comic Con in Telford. This was a great show the last time I was there so I am really looking forward to the first of many shows this year. I have been working hard to finish the 'Dragon Stand' and although it is close it will not be ready in time for Telford. I should have it ready for EMCON. Prabath has done an awesome picture of Dragonosis (from RUIN book…

What a great end to the year - Birmingham was excellent. The minions and I had a great time and it was so good to catch up with an increasing number of people who own my complete set of works. It's humbling to hear the feedback and I am just pleased that you are enjoying the novels. Thanks also to those who stopped to talk and give the books a try, some of you have already sent me feedback - you…

Soo looking forward to the NEC this weekend. It is where I started so always feels like going home. I will have 'Ghost Isle' for all of you that haven't got it yet as well as some other cool stuff. We are down to our last 10 Dying Star box sets and once these are gone they won't be reprinted in that format again. I hope to have some exciting news on the publishing front which would see all current…

Had a fantastic time at Cardiff Comic Con at the weekend. A massive thanks to all those who came to talk to us and buy the books. It was good to see some returning faces from last time. The people are always so friendly and this is turning into a great event. My apologies to the trader beside me who bought Dying Star and couldn't put it down - I hope it didn't affect sales too much!My thanks also…

What a great weekend at the Excel in London. I am totally exhausted, but it was worth it. I have forgotten how much I missed the shows. Thanks to all those fans who visited the stand to chat and update their collections with all the new merchandise. I was really humbled by the positive feedback and stories from those of you who enjoy my work. It was great to see more people new to my writing…

It's here! The third book in the Ruin series is now available. It has taken me a while to write 'The Ghost Isle', and I took a lot longer than normal to edit it. I think the outcome is a well composed piece of fiction that I'm hoping you'll all enjoy. Ruin is still mourning the loss of his friends and his sober and angry mood affects his decisions early on in the book. He finds a new sword…
