The Free Universe Series
Tescal is the first book in the Free Universe series. It is currently in undergoing its second draft with a view to being completed by September 2017. A feedback session on 1st April this year has greatly influenced the manner in which the story is being told, and the invaluable advice of trusted individuals continues to make the world a more rich and satisfying place to visit.
The story is a mystery set on a world where no-one can remember why they are there. Steadily, the perspective, for the reader at least, peels back. But as certain mysteries are solved, more questions come to the fore, and tensions rise on and off-world. Will they find the Arch? Who has the power to control it? But more important, why does everyone want it?
Harmonius R.A.W is the second instalment of the Free Universe series and its first draft is currently being written. Due to the nature of the first novel, giving away information about its plot or details at this time would potentially spoil the reader's enjoyment, but suffice to say that many of the characters met in Tescal will have a part to play.

The back-stories of many of the characters from the main canon are documented in a series of novellas, serving to enrich the experience of the reader and to give a greater understanding of their past plights and victories.

I tend not to want to write in the same style too often which means that a lot of my poetry ends up being very different from one piece to the next. These are but a few from the first volume of work - if you are interested in reading more, do send me a message and I would be happy to select a few more, but I believe for the moment this gives a good idea of the spread of curiosity that I have for poetic ideas.
