How to Avoid Death on a Daily Basis

What if you really were transported to a fantasy world and expected to kill monsters to survive? No special abilities, no OP weapons, no status screen to boost your stats and no cheat mode. Never mind finding the dragon’s treasure or defeating the Demon Lord, you only need to worry about one thing—how to stay alive.

The Good Student

Nic Tutt is a good student. He excels at all subjects. But his education serves only one purpose—to gain entry into the Ransom School. 

The most prestigious school in the country, its alumni are destined to become the future leaders of Ranvar. Politicians, statesmen and, in some exceptional cases, mages. But Nic doesn't care about any of that. He has another reason to want to enter Ranvar's most famous school.


VRMMORPG has arrived, along with: bugs, exploits, OP classes, over the top nerfs, p2w, ridiculous RNG, lockboxes, raging players, broken mechanics, limited bag space, tedious crafting... and then there's the goblins and ogres.

Bitter. The story of a girl who finds her life isn't what she wanted. So she gets another one. 

Grin the Cheat

There was a time when heroes roamed between the Four Great Cities. They fought for kingdoms and princesses, and they lived and died by their valour. The way the minstrels sing it, everyone had a swashbuckling good time.

Nowadays, buckles are rarely swashed. All the great beasts have been slain, all the great treasures unearthed. Princesses are few and far between. Frankly, the hero business is in a sorry state. Luckily for Grin the Cheat, thieving and murder are thriving as usual.


Short Stories

A collection of stories about everything.

My interests are quite broad. 

Deeper Darker

Set in the far future when humanity has reached the stars and finds it is not the first to do so.

Alien technology has been left behind by a long dead race. Ancient cities, abandoned starships, temples and fortified bunkers all contain artefacts and devices far in advance of what humans have been able to produce.

But these relics of another time have been left well-defended and behind bewildering and impenetrable security measures.
