Today is an auspicious day. <insert trumpet fanfare here>.
I decided this year it was time to take the next step in my writing career. Today is the official launch day for my Patreon page, to help fund my writing and enable me to create even better things for you.
During 2018, I will be sharing my journey as I write ‘Aunt Enid’ – a septuagenarian who loves playing bingo and fusses over her garden gnomes. – and then return to complete ‘The Department of Curiosities’.
Find out more in my intro video or feel free to visit my Patreon page for even more details.
Come take a look. Say hello. Hang a while. Share my writing journey.
Now we have all settled into the new year, I can announce my current work-in-progress is a modern fantasy set in Adelaide.
This was an unexpected detour but is proving to be a pleasant one.
‘Aunt Enid: Protector Extraordinaire’ is a new genre for me – a cosy paranormal mystery (I found out this was a thing after I started writing…)
‘Daemons, fairies, magic: it’s all real. The Otherworld is bleeding through the cracks in its shell. And Adelaide is ground zero. Something is coming. Something dark – trading souls for passage. And only one person stands between the Dark and the fate of the world.
Aunt Enid is just your average seventy-something year old. She loves to cook, is a regular at bingo and spends hours in her garden, talking to her arm of garden gnomes and fussing over the colour of her hydrangeas…
When people start disappearing, her great niece, Sally, is drawn into a secret world and soon discovers her great aunt is a Protector Extraordinaire.’
Then I am back to work on a new steampunk adventure series, ‘The Department of Curiosities’ – a steampunk tale of adventure, a heroine, mad scientists, traitors and secrets. All for the good of the Empire.
A new information page on The Aunt Enid mysteries has been added to my webpage. This will be a duology, and the first of four books in The Otherworlds fantasy series.
