Here is the cover I’ve created for my 2nd novel in the Para-Earth Series, which will be coming this Summer.  I’m aiming for late-May or June for the release.

This story takes place during the one month lapse of time mentioned at the end of the first book “The Bridge”. It follows the adventures of Cassandra and Julie out on the west coast. Where they learn that not only is the evil they fought back in the first book truly gone, but a new threat has arisen from the depths of the Pacific. A threat known to Cassandra’s family and which is now hunting her…


The finished cover. I’m rather pleased with it. Comments are welcome…


Here is a rough vine charcoal sketch/design for the cover of my first novel “THE BRIDGE”. I’m not happy with the top half so I’m going to have another go and put in a figure of a woman with incredibly long flowing hair. Like in this image, her hair will stretch down to ground and further down the stonework to create the the words of the title. The other words will be put in during editing of the image. A dark stormy sky will be her backdrop. And all of this happens in the book itself. I like to be honest with my image content.

This is one of the many places I go to roam when I hit writer’s block or I’m trying to sort through a scene and can’t quite get it to fit. There are a lot of places like this in Santa Cruz which help me get the ole’ noggin’ working. Hope you like the image everyone. More posts coming soon.


It Was Supposed To Be A Still-Life...

I call this piece, “IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE A STILL LIFE”,  I couldn’t help myself with this one.   She looked so cute messing about under the tree.  This was my Dad’s cat Spikette.  The pose was based on my own cat Avalon, the beautiful black cat you see as my photo.  Both cats and my Dad are gone, so I’m really glad I did this piece.   It makes me think of all of them.  I’ve worked with Charcoal and Soft Pastel for years and this of course is done in the pastels.  I hope you enjoy this.

I’ve finished with my final exams…YAY!  But I’m also fighting a massive cold (yes I was fighting it while taking the exams as well…wheeeeeeee).  But now I have more time to rest and try and get over it.  In the meantime, I hope to be getting back to my writing and posting more sections here shortly.  Thanks for all your patience and I hope you’re all enjoying the holiday season.
