Now available on Amazon and KU, the supernatural serial killer book, Serial!

To find a cure for psychopathy, scientists have created a drug that induces it in human test subjects in order to study and prevent it in the future. But one scientist's impatience leads to a terrible mistake.
Ann wants out. Away from her abusive stepfather and cowardly mother, to start a new life elsewhere. And the ad she sees asking for paid volunteers to test a new drug could be the start she needs to buy new clothes, get a job and leave. And yet, one day in her basement, she finds a necklace. When she wears it, she begins to hear a voice in her head, telling her to find the owner's killer. But after testing the drug at Brimstone Laboratories, two conflicting voices in her head fight for supremacy of her self-control. One telling her to find a killer; the other telling her to kill them all.
And only one of the voices can achieve its goal. Which one will it be? Click here to grab your copy!


Book 1 of The Ghosts of Northgate trilogy!

Detective Inspector Jim Morfield is worried. In the quiet, countryside village of Fritton, human remains have begun appearing. Bodies so viciously mutilated that only their bones are left behind, in some cases less than a few hours after they were reported missing. What creature could possibly devour human remains so quickly? Surely, as with the case of farmer Stanley Walters, it couldn’t be his cows nearby and covered in blood that dismembered and devoured him? Then, when another person is attacked by a horse, his arm nearly torn off, he has no choice but to consider the impossible.

The problem is that there is another killer to contend with. One who has Fritton terrified. A serial killer hiding among the woods and fields, unseen, unchallenged. Now Jim has to decide if the bodies accumulating in the area are the works of a human or something as harmless as the local wildlife.

Book 2 of the trilogy, The Ghosts of Northgate.

Northgate Psychiatric Hospital for the Criminally Insane is home to England’s most depraved and twisted minds. Cannibals, serial killers, necrophiles, the worst mankind has to offer all locked up for life behind its walls, no chance of a reprieve. Better for all.

But when one of the inmates, Harold Saggerbob, is found brutally mutilated in his cell and nothing on the CCTV footage to indicate the aggressor, Detective Inspector Morfield is less than thrilled when he is called in to investigate. Northgate Hospital is the one place on Earth he does not like to visit. He has his own secrets connected to the prison, that haunt him in his dreams.

Then, another inmate is found in similar circumstances. And yet, as he delves into the hospital’s history, he discovers the inmates may not be the only ones with secrets to hide. Or just the living. Click on the cover to grab your copy!

Book 3 in the trilogy

Chaos and terror have returned to Bradwell. People are collapsing and dying everywhere in unimaginable circumstances and for no apparent reason.

Angela and her young daughter, Stephanie, desperately try to escape the horror, not knowing if they will become victims as well. All they can do is try and get home to safety, but this isn’t as easy as they hoped.

Claire has been suffering abuse at the hands of her boyfriend for too long. To the point she suffers a nervous breakdown, yet when she finally shows signs of recovering, for some reason everyone has disappeared. Even her boyfriend appears to be dead and she can’t remember a single thing. Not knowing what to do, she decides to try and find her mother. But she has been incarcerated in Northgate Hospital for the Criminally Insane and may not even be alive. It’s a chance she has to take, though.

Joyce Fairweather and her new husband Michael are hiding in Northgate, not knowing what is going on and why the staff have all died but the inmates haven’t. Something is terrorising the villagers and it may not be of this world.

Dare they risk going into Bradwell for supplies or remain where they are? Surely a prison for the most disturbed, vile prisoners in the country is not safer than whatever is hunting outside? Maybe there is only one way to find out…
