The Will of the Wisp

At long last I am able to proudly announce the release of my second novel, The Will of the Wisp. After spending several years in the works I am pleased to say it will be available to purchase 1 July 2017.

The enigmatic hermit Mr. Wight has passed away, leaving his fortune to the estranged Mr. Fairlie. Mr. Pinnacle Tricks, Fairlie’s assistant, is unceremoniously ushered off to Wight’s isolated home in a Northern European forest to resolve the matter of the will. What begins as a routine task for Tricks quickly unravels into a mystery far bigger than he could have imagined. A love triangle, an unclaimed fortune, missing persons and ghostly sightings; nothing is what it seems and Tricks, an unwilling passenger to it all, must discover what is real and what is merely an illusion.
A tangled tale of unspeakable betrayal and grudges left unforgiven, The Will of the Wisp is unique in its blend of drama, of horror, and the lengths people will go to protect who or what they love most.

More to follow in the coming weeks, but until then, please have a read of the synopsis and to the Goodreads users out there – I kindly ask you to add it to your ‘to-read’ list!

A Poem – Desolation Hill

P.S.Clinen

Haggard eyes of sand – look!
At blackened, brittle trees shook
With gusts of groaning, ravaged fury,
Bursting with the leaves they took.

Like golden stars, they spin and swirl,
Glide on violent gale hurl!
Through grey force, the birds drown
And slide on through maelstrom curl.

The wind chases onward forth
From empty, endless miles North.
Ivy, creep! Cling to ruin,
Strangle dead a long lost worth.

Warmth forgotten, time is still,
Sun shine weak onto the hill.
Dim as a silver coin in the sky,
Yearning for sleep debt to fulfill.

Unearthed Fiction – The Australia Times March 2017

Following on from last month, I have had another short story featured in the March edition of Unearthed Fiction. Hit the link below to have a read of Knock Terns along with several short stories from other Australian writers.

Knock Terns is a relatively recent piece of mine that will one day serve as an opening chapter for a novel; we’re a long way off seeing completion for that one though!

Thanks again to The Australia Times for featuring my story.
