Books and stories to read online now! Choose from romance to science fiction and fantasy. I like to mix my genres, so my science fiction stories have a little romance and even my romantic stories have a few thrills. Most of my romance stories are contemporary, but one is set in World War II and it's aftermath. If you would like to know a bit more about me, my writing and what I like to read, please visit my Goodreads Author Profile Page and my Author Interview at The Independent Author Network.

There are several ways to read the books and stories listed below. By choosing the free chapters link you can read the books and stories online at your leisure, or download them and print them out to read later. All the Short Stories are free to access and download, and the first twenty chapters of most of my books are always free. These free chapters and password chapters are all in simple HTML format and are the original first drafts of each book. The password chapters require you to email me for a password before accessing and downloading as before. However, you can also buy the actual books at Amazon or Barnes & Noble by following the links provided. Or, a cheaper and more mobile alternative, you can purchase the Kindle version at Amazon and the ebook version from the Google Play eBookstore. You can also buy the equivalent Nook version at Barnes & Noble and various other ebook formats at Kobo, Blio and the Apple iBookstore. These Kindle, Nook and other ebook versions are priced at $2.99 each. Series starters and the odd single book are also priced at Free. And if you have a subscription with Scribd, you can read them all there for free. These versions are available world wide and have all been distributed via Smashwords, so you can also get all these ebook formats (DRM free) directly from Smashwords.com, again at $2.99 and Free. Depending on exchange rates this price works out to about £1.90 on UK sites such as uk.Nook.com, Google Play in the UK and Amazon.co.uk. Remember, all ebooks should be the same price at each retail website, in each country. Again, links are provided.

The Sullenfeld Oracle (In Progress)

  • Don't try and access this book, it's not ready yet.

For many years the silk merchants and traders who returned from the Sullenfeld had brought tales of a woman who could foretell the future. These tales led more people to visit Sullenfeld with no other purpose than to seek her out. Those that saw her almost always prospered. And gradually, as the tales grew, more and more people made the pilgrimage to Sullenfeld to make their petitions and hear her speak. And all who returned told of the Seeing Eye and of the beautiful woman with the velvet voice who possessed it. The off-worlders were intrigued by the Seeing Eye and also wanted to possess it. And so they made their plans and stole into the Sullenfeld unnoticed. But strangely enough they hadnít included in those plans the simple fact that the Sullenfeld Oracle already knew that they were coming...
