Who Sleuthed It?

Due for release: February 2021

I’m delighted to have a short story in Clan Destine Press’ latest anthology about animals helping their animal friends – or their human sidekicks – solve a host of diabolical crimes and whimsical mysteries.

“Blood and Bone” is set in Melbourne in 1871, and sees wizard Lucius Kearney and his shape-changing rat wizard friend Magnus Sminth investigating a disappearance on behalf of a damsel who is in no particular need of rescuing.

The She-Wolf of Baker Street

Currently being serialised on my Patreon

It began in late 2020, and continues into 2021: my new novel is being serialised on PatreonThe She-Wolf of Baker Street is a queer, modern, paranormal take on ACD’s classic characters. Werewolf Audrey Hudson takes on a tenant who may help her discover the mastermind behind the vicious murder of her pack.

All new patrons get Scar Tissue and Other Stories as a welcome reward.

The Only One in the World

The Only One in the World is an anthology of Sherlock Holmes stories predicated on the notion of what Holmes and/or Watson would be like if they came from a completely different cultural background.

Writers with a particular cultural background or expert historical knowledge were invited to contribute, so readers can look forward to Holmeses and Watsons from many backgrounds.

Clan Destine Press aims to release the anthology early in 2021. Details will be posted as they are available.

Branch and Root

My story, ‘The Marbletree Wood’, will appear in Branch and Root from Shooting Star Press. It’s set in the Witches of Tyne universe, but a very long time after the events of those books.

The release has been delayed due to the pandemic (well, what hasn’t?) so stay tuned for details.

More details and links when they are available!

More books, short stories and songs are coming, but in the meantime, take a look at what came out in 2020.

2020 releases!
