Fourth book released!

What would you risk, what could you bear to lose, to change the way the world is into the way the world should be? Would you stake everything, even your life, to save an ideal everyone else has given up…See More

"Currently it's Terry Pratchett's 'The Lost Continent', which is a little steam - punky, but soon It'll be Kevin J Anderson's Captain Nemo, so I'm sure you'll all be good enough to forgive me..."

Profile Information

Introduction
Greetings all! I'm an author of three books, The Lost Brigade, The Silent Council and The Unknown King, all steampunk books, at least in the setting, but with a supernatural twist that I'll let you discover for yourself! All are available on Amazon for a very very, ridiculously very low price - the first is $1, and you get an awful lot for your money, though I think we can promise you quality and quantity! Apart from this I am generally a worker in Education, though presently laid up with a broken ankle...

That said, I am going to try and put some sort of…
