A Meeting with God

In the run up to Halloween, here is another true and strange tale of the paranormal. I will post a new strange true story each day so don’t miss them. A few weeks into my college days, as I made my way from the Students’ Union building to my student flat on the 19th floor of a campus building, I noticed a rather suspicious looking character who seemed to be following me around. As I entered one of the elevators in the ground-floor of the building, he followed peering sideways at me but looking away whenever I tried to catch his eye. As the elevator arrived at my floor, I was hoping it was all just my imagination and that perhaps he would continue up to the top floor above

The Lord of the Elements

The Lord of the Elements is the prequel to The Last Observer and it focuses, for reasons those who have read The Last Observer will understand, on Edward Bright. Edward is the friendly, well-meaning and debonair magician and businessman who attempts to rescue bookworm Stanley from Zeltan and his black Lodge but in The Last Observer we do not learn much about the man, where he came from and why he is, well – who he is. The Lord of the Elements follows Edward through college as his interest in magic grows. After college, he is taken under the wing of a rich banker who becomes Edward’s adopted father in many respects. As well as being a successful private banker, Cyril Bainbridge is also the Grand Master of a Magic Lodge based

Radio, Radio

On Monday I will be doing a couple more radio shows. First, I will be a guest on the Halloween special show of  Sloth and Money radio talking about The Last Observer and some of the strange experiences I had growing up. Later on (3am), I will be talking to Christine Corda on Kiss me, I’m Psychic radio again about The Last Observer, Psychic experiences and so on. I am looking forward to both as I find these radio interviews really a lot of fun. Recently, I was also featured on the X Zone radio with Rob McConnell and will appear again as we simply did not have sufficient time to finish the conversation. You can hear that interview here. Apparently, there a few more radio interviews in the pipeline

Inner Dreaming – World Blog Hop

Sue Vincent passed on the baton of the World Blog Hop to me as it moves from writer to writer across the blogosphere. Apparently, I am to describe my personal writing process and then pass on the assignment to another writer and blogger. Sue and I wrote a book together a while ago but it was all done by email – sort of writing by correspondence! I think it worked though and the book stands as testimony to that process. Just recently, I have done a few interviews and there is always a question or two about the writing process as if it were formulaic. Perhaps for some it is. For me, there isn’t so much as a process as a frame of mind. Firstly, I need to feel the

The Lord of the Elements

A mysterious book written by a reputed devil worshipper with immortality of which only one original and six copies were ever made, has been found and Edward is tasked with unlocking its mysteries. Is the book the original or one of the copies that brought fatal bad luck to their owners and were supposedly destroyed? Meanwhile, William attends a party with his friend ostensibly to meet the rich and famous where he is introduced to the charismatic but rather strange Ralph Meister and finds himself searching in the Arizona desert for salvation as result. This is the beginning of the Lord of the Elements, the forthcoming prequel to The Last Observer. How are these two sets of events related and how will they set the scene for an explosion of

An Excerpt from The Last Observer

The opening of Chapter 10 The breathing was rhythmic. With each breath, she was breathing in fire. All around her were flames, and she could feel the heat and smell the acrid smell of smoke. She inhaled and imagined that the fire was entering every pore of her body like a sponge. She could feel its heat and she imagined herself expanding, expanding and flickering. She was a flame as she consumed the fire. She was rising and floating like hot air and she had filled herself with the element of fire and felt its energies. She was burning her dross, transforming it into pure energy, cleansing herself in the fires. She then began to reverse the process, breathing out the fire through every pore in her body but feeling

The Lord of the Elements

Last night I reached the milestone of 10,000 words written for my new novel – The Lord of the Elements. I guess then, I am about 1/4 done with the first draft but I do hope to make more progress on it this month and perhaps complete the book by end of September. It would be good to have it out and ready for christmas. The Lord of the Elements is the prequel to The Last Observer and features Edward primarily. It starts with Edward as a young student with a strong interest in mathematics and the occult and follows Edward as he discovers a long lost manuscript written by an initiate named Gallivar in the late 16th Century. In his attempt to decipher the book, Edward comes into contact

Great New Price for Kindle Last Observer

After a couple of attempts, I managed to convince my publisher to knock the price of the eBook version of The Last Observer down. I always thought eBooks should be substantially cheaper than the print versions but that hasn’t been the case in practice for some reason. So, if you pop over to Amazon, you will find the Kindle version now selling for under five bucks! Just in time for that summer vacation read. likeheartlaughterwowsadangry0
