Winter Solstice Winter - A Viking Blood Saga: Norse Fantasy Viking Saga

In the land of the midnight sun, where ruthless Vikings and shape-shifters roam free, an evil empress usurps the Northlandic Throne and suspends the seasons on Winter Solstice. Lucia and Soren were sent by the gods to defeat the empress, but deceits run deep, and they become torn between fate and reality... and between love and loyalty as the battle to end all battles begins.

What readers are saying:

Loved the Window into Norse mythology

Riveting and movie-worthy

I have just one problem with this book - I can't wait for the second one!

A wonderful period romantic thriller that grabs your attention in the first few pages, and never lets up on its grip.

Non-stop, fly by the seat of your pants suspense.

I...found the book to be an impressive Viking tale, with two very real, very well-described main characters.

This is one of those books that makes you say, "I'll read for twenty minutes." Then two hours later, you decide you need twenty minutes more.

Welcome to a cold, wintery world where nothing is what it seems.

Winter Solstice Winter has the perfect amount of intrigue, mystery, mythology, action, love and passion to make it a very good read.

Usually, I have no patience for historical fiction unless it offers something fresh or truly engaging to the story. Winter Solstice Winter does that and then a lot more. My advice is straightforward...GET THIS BOOK -- YOU'RE GOING TO LOVE IT!

Travelling light - poetry

A collection of 54 poems - long and short, written in various styles. The majority are free verse.

I have three other published poetry books:

'Kaleidoscope' - a collection of 119 poems, written from the age of 16 until 2010;

'Life's Rhythms' - a book of 316 haiku, composed in the traditional pattern of three lines with 5-7-5 syllables, written from 2011-12; and

'Mind-spinning Rainbows' - a collection of 150 poems, written since 2012.

Apart from poetry, I have written 12 novels - some for children and some for adults.

Sample poem...

We live in the echoes

We step inside mirrors

Lemon petals pave the way

I sleep in stages, sleep sublime

Walking pages never read again

I see the signs yet still forget

Imagining faces of the past

A rush of bliss splits the breeze

Where the peacemaker wanders

The crevices of the closed mind

He offers echoes of your stare

We live in the echoes

Patterns drawn upon a wall

Plunging ripples capture all

The raw beauty of the real

Where the Fool laughs his last

Is a time we'll never see

For he plays so beautifully

Daring to step beyond himself

Embracing all there is to see

With such wide open arms.
