• The Old Ways

    by  • August 31, 2015 • 0 Comments

    Walk across Britain on any of the old ways and you’re embarking on a mystical journey.  That’s the interesting thing about these ancient paths and tracks, some of which date back thousands of years, these holloways and drove-roads and trails.  They’re more than just routes between geographical points.  They reach back in time, back...

    Faerie, Elizabethan Spies And Reviews

    by  • June 29, 2015 • 0 Comments

    Two new reviews for the Sword of Albion books that I’ve just been sent: First, The Scar-Crow Men: “the plot just kept me turning, page after page…” And The Devil’s Looking Glass: “a cracking series…a great blend of history, action and supernatural elements and I think the attention to detail is pretty marvellous.”

    The 21st Century Writer

    by  • May 18, 2015 • 1 Comment

    (Or: I am not a lazy git.) It’s probably fair to say that about 80% of a writer’s labours are hidden from public view.  They’re the projects that never quite come together, or never get picked up, for a whole variety of reasons.  The pitches that seem to be going somewhere, and then die...

    Mythonauts

    by  • May 12, 2015 • 0 Comments

    Anyone who thinks mythology doesn’t matter hasn’t been paying attention for…oh…five thousand years. Mythology is both the secret language of the unconscious mind and the code that rewrites the physical world around us.  Mythology shapes the psyche, and through it the lives of people who engage with it.  It defines politics – wave at...

    by  • December 9, 2014 • 0 Comments

    Easily scared?  Probably best if you don’t read Testimony, my non-fiction account of a truly spine-chilling supernatural event, now available at Amazon.  The publisher calls it The ultimate proof of life after death, or the most terrifying true story ever told? and that’s a fair description. When Bill and Liz Rich moved into an...

    Is The Age Of The Psychopath Over?

    by  • August 12, 2014 • 0 Comments

    I’ve written a piece for Medium. “Look around you. Out on the street, all those faces. They look just like you. But some of them aren’t like you at all. They’re so different, they might as well be another species. They are the secret masters of this world, and they always have been. If...

    Gone Girl has been running high in the bestseller charts for a while now, and there’s a movie on the way from David Fincher, a man who knows a good thing when he sees it.  While I was taking a break down in Cornwall for a week, I nabbed a copy and enjoyed it...
