Adventure of the Colonial Boy

My newest book, a Holmes/Watson romance set in Australia in 1893, is due out in March! Stay tuned for release dates information!

1893. Dr Watson, still in mourning for the death of his great friend Sherlock Holmes, is now triply bereaved, with his wife Mary’s death in childbirth. Then a telegram from Melbourne, Australia intrudes into his grief:

“Come at once if convenient.“

Both suspicious and desperate to believe that Holmes may not, after all, be dead, Watson goes as immediately as the sea voyage will allow. Soon Holmes and Watson are together again, on an adventure through Bohemian Melbourne and rural Victoria, following a series of murders linked by a repulsive red leech and one of Moriarty’s lieutenants.

But things are not as they were. Too many words lie unsaid between the Great Detective and his biographer. Too much that they feel is a secret.

Solve the crime, forgive a friend, rediscover trust and admit to love. Surely that is not beyond that legendary duo, Sherlock Holmes and Dr John Watson?

Stay tuned for information on the release date here or at Improbable Press.

Talbott & Burns Mysteries #2

The second adventure in the Talbott & Burns erotic/romantic mystery series is all about the love…and the mystery.

Elliot and Jack’s investigation business gets their first paying customer. A suburban housewife wants to know if her daughter is a witch.

The answer isn’t rocket science. Elliot at least understands the fundamentals of rocket science. He knows slightly less about sex, but his long time love (but only new lover) Jack is giving him a thorough grounding in that too.

Now, if only they can keep their mouths shut, not walk into danger again, save the day, and actually get paid, they’ll be doing well.

Kitty and Cadaver

Kitty and Cadaver is the story of a rock and roll band that saves the world from monsters.

It's the story of love and loss. It's the story of music and magic. It's the story of a zombie apocalypse that maybe isn't one, on the streets of Melbourne.

The Kitty and Cadaver project involves an online novel, with songs and art, a craft project and eventually a comic book. Who knows what else may come out of it?
