FUTURE WORLD ROCKS! - Series: Carousels of Life
This story contains interwoven strands that are brought together as events unfold. It is a space opera with a difference - it is actually set to music, with many of the events based on true reports.
     The first focuses on the aftermath of Nazi research into UFO based systems. Primarily it concerns a flying time travel craft called the ‘Bell’ and its disappearance after those early days when the U.S.A. took over its research.
     The second occurs in the future, when alien refugees seek asylum with us on our planet. They come from a planet destroyed by one of its own moons and have wandered the stars, looking for a place to stay.
     Soon they are introducing us to other beings, secretly living under the surface of the planet and mining the moon. Naturally, whodunit problems arise for our crime detection agents to resolve.

All this occurs to a backdrop of Rock n’ Roll music, as Future World rocks to its core!


THE SIGHTSEERS AGENCY - Series: The Dreadnought Collective Book 5.
Welcome to my fantasy world. It is not set in some mythical universe, but here on young Planet Earth. Neither is it inhabited by fearsome, impregnable foes who cannot be killed except by crystal spears, nor by the walking, frenzied dead.
     It is set in the not too distant future, where the unimaginable has happened: society has evolved without suffering near-extinction from a myriad of catastrophic disasters.
     The population is being reduced from its ridiculously overblown previous level, and life as we know it is becoming idyllic.
     As you might expect, there are hiccups on the way, with murderous and criminal behavior yet to be fully eradicated.
     Religion only exists in pockets, now that we realize how we evolved, naturally, and did not need a helping hand in the ongoing process.
     How did we develop that realization? With awareness from aliens. After all, they seeded our beloved planet using us as guinea pigs.
     The problem is, the ones we’ve allied ourselves with don’t care about us very much. However, they do like what we possess, sufficiently to want to share it with us in the meantime, hidden from view except to those in the know.
     This book contains a series of whodunit escapades with serious undertones.

Ignore the all too real messages it contains at your peril.

THE INLOOKER - FULL LENGTH  - Series: The Dreadnought Collective Book 2.This is a ‘black humour’ science fiction story set in the near future, where a man finds that he has a very special talent. It is to take over other people’s souls and thus possess their bodies as if they were his own.
As he becomes increasingly aware of his abilities, he first uses them to mete out justice to mentally warped criminals, and then to undertake sexual adventures.
Growing tired of what are, in the scheme of things, trivial pursuits, he embarks on a life of crime intent on accumulating serious amounts of money. Whilst fleecing the wealthy, he comes across an alien hiding amongst us, and is impressed by the seamless transport system on its own planet, so he decides to emulate it on Planet Earth.
With a colleague recruited from The Lockheed Skunk Works in America, he develops a vehicle based on UFO technology, and uses it as a stepping stone to power. His motivation soon goes beyond his revolutionary and hugely successful transport system, and extends to a serious attempt at population reduction. For this he requires even more prominence on the world stage, as he battles aliens to prevent annihilation of the expanding human race.
This book charts his progress, as he strives to achieve the impossible. It also monitors the impact on his family life, where he eventually has to decide whether to opt for mortality or immortality.
This book is targeted at those who like to question morality, and challenge the values we place on the lives we lead.

This book goes by the title SANTIAGO TALES, which is in the series: A Wonderfully Wacky World Book 2.
     It is about a group of retired people who decide to embark on a pilgrimage to Santiago, in Northern Spain, under the leadership of an ex-detective and a few nefarious friends.
     The inspiration for the style of presentation came from Canterbury Tales by Geoffrey Chaucer, but without delving too deeply into the poetry associated with the original masterpiece.
     The material in the individual stories varies from the raunchy to the bawdy and from the hilarious to the sad, being based more often than not on actual experiences.
