The Collection of Jacqueline Melrose – Revenge

What if George R. R. Martin had written Marry Poppins?

When an insane immortal is trapped on Earth and a precocious human girl is selected for immortality, the two cannot keep out of each other’s way, resulting in adventure, mayhem, murder and heartbreak.

Jeanne Melrose is in trouble.

Her husband, a landowner in 1910 London’s warehouse district, has died under mysterious circumstances. Murdered, in fact. Jeanne is quickly courted by a shady business associate, and her precocious twin daughters now see conspiracy and catastrophe ’round every corner.

Yet even as the twins plot their mother’s salvation, a half-step to the right off any cobbled street corner finds the immortal Ba of OtherWhere coveting the spirit of one of Jeanne’s daughters for themselves and are impatiently awaiting her delivery.

Half human and half Ba, Edith Stitch is sent to prepare the young Jacqueline Melrose as best she can to survive the pending events, but Edith fails to foresee the immortal and insane Lord Booth falling from OtherWhere to invade London and bedevil Jeanne’s and her daughter’s lives.

Managing business and family along with unearthly confrontations toughen Widow Melrose, but oblivious to her vital place in the way-of-things, consequences confound her and will eventually leave her heartbroken.

The Collection of Jacqueline Melrose – Remember

Blood is forever.

The second and final chapter of The Collection of Jacqueline Melrose.

The killer of Jacqueline’s father has been dealt with, but the situation is far from over. Booth, fallen Ba of OtherWhere and instigator of the murder, roams the streets of London seeking answers to a question he cannot ask.

Joanne Melrose has been sucked away, landing alone and lost in a dimension of her own creation. In her attempts to discover a way home, she rocks the very reality of Earth, and awakens the Others – consumers of life.

Join Jacqueline and Edith and Jeanne as they desperately try and recover the lost Joanne, unaware that Joanne has changed – no longer the innocent twin sister, but a powerfully reckless force threatening the very existence of mortal life on Earth.

And Booth – Villain or hero… even he doesn’t know.

The Girl on the Thirteenth Floor

What would you do to obtain ultimate power? What would you do to keep it? What if you never wanted it…

A girl child is born into the most powerful family on Earth. Her father loves her more dearly than anything. More than his wife who died far too young. More than his unique business, his brain child, and a greedy brainchild at that. Her father runs Earth’s first and only Space Elevator. A construction so advanced with secret technology – the world’s curious and greedy will stop at nothing to wrest that power from him. And it is ultimate power, as the Snake is the only economical path into space, and also provides earth with vast amounts of power obtained from space born generators.

And one day it will all be hers.

If she wants it.

If she can hold it.

If she survives.



The Vegreville Coven

A series following three witches that have survived the early days despite their calling. Turns out, beyond witchcraft, they are also the ultimate in assassins.

Abigail, Ophelia and Selene are three sisters of the blood that have become infamous through their escapades. But a funny kind of famous – for no one has ever really heard of them. Which is pretty much the they like it. They like their peace. They like their privacy. And they like to kill. If you need someone dead and you are powerful enough, you may overhear a whispered rumour about someone who knows someone who heard about someone. Maybe. And if you pursue it – you may wind up dead yourself. In this way, the sisters have survived a very long time.

But their relationship with each other is the last thing to have helped them, as they’d pretty much love to kill each other as much as anyone else.

Follow these three misfits, all dealing with the angst of modern society: failing memory, maybe some ADHD, an eating disorder, suspected allergies, perhaps a little narcissistic, a little malevolent, a little violent… as they muddle and fuddle their way though the pages of a very old and heavy calendar. Surviving in today’s word they help and hinder each other in their day to day lives amongst the locals, living their odd lives and taking occasional contracts to rid the world of… just about anyone (and not always human).

And yes, they have to be careful of witch hunters, and old society of servants to the highest of the high. Witch hunters are envious of the power of the true witch. Snatching fragmented secrets of necromancy when they can, they are tasked by their masters to rid the world of the witches that remain free and uncontrolled.
