A Ghoul Like You (short story)
Nothing says “I love you” like a stake through the heart
Niall’s just looking for a quiet life, ever since the botched vampire attack that turned him into a ghoul. He’s even trying to stay off the pleasures of human flesh.
Jamie’s a revenge-driven kid on a vampire killing spree, and he needs Niall’s help to survive. Somehow Niall finds his long-dormant conscience—and his libido—waking up. But Jamie’s luck can only last so long.
A visceral story of love (or something like it) among the undead.
Previously published by Noble Romance, and due to be re-issued by JMS Books January 5th, 2014.
It’s All Geek to Me (novelette)
On a mission of mercy to buy a comic book for his injured best mate, lab technician Jez meets Rhys, the poster boy for Getting Geeks Laid. Rhys is tall, gorgeous and totally cool, and he works in the Temple of Geekdom itself, the Hidden Asteroid bookstore in London. Desperate to impress the hot guy and lacking in confidence after a bad break-up, Jez pretends to be into comic books—then dashes back to the hospital to beg his mate Tel to teach him how to speak Geek.
Tel obliges, and Jez is over the moon when Rhys asks him out. When he finds out they share a love of rugby, Jez thinks things couldn’t be more perfect. But you can’t fool all of the people all of the time…

Relief Valve (novel)
- #2 in The Plumber’s Mate series
A sequel to Pressure Head. Tom and Phil return to deal with dark doings in the home counties.
If you dig up the past, be prepared to get dirty
It hasn’t been all smooth sailing since plumber Tom Paretski and P.I. Phil Morrison became connected at the heart, if not always at Tom’s dodgy hip. Neither of their families has been shy about voicing their disapproval, which hasn’t helped Tom’s uneasy relationship with his prickly older sister, Cherry.
But when Cherry is poisoned at her own engagement party, the horror of her near death has Tom’s head spinning with possible culprits. Is it her fiancé Gregory, a cathedral canon with an unfortunate manner and an alarming taste for taxidermy? Someone from her old writers’ circle, which she left after a row? Or could the attack be connected to her work as a barrister?
Phil is just as desperate to solve the case before someone ends up dead—and he fears it could be Tom. At least one of their suspects has a dark secret to hide, which makes Tom’s sixth sense for finding things like a target painted on his back…
Warning: Contains a strong, silent, macho PI; a cheeky, chirpy, cat-owning plumber; and a gag gift from beyond the grave that’ll put the cat firmly among the pigeons.
