A lull in the progress of my next novel, provokes me to write these compact, snapshots. If you need a break from busy, take 5 mins, relax and read…

An unknown pestilence and fear has scourged the planet’s surface of humanity and its prospecting, operations.

Meet Anna. Her dreams as a child were to live and work upon the mysterious, alluring plains of Mars. Dreams do come true it transpires, and Anna is transported to Merlin Station.

There she finds survivors of the calamity that ruined Merlin, and importantly, her reason for her existence..
Anna is a fluid blend of sci-fi and horror, and is due for release before the end of May. Hopefully you will travel the stars to meet Anna and me upon Mars…
As the title states…a disconnect.
Progress is more of a trickle than a stream due to life changes and unexpected hurdles, but progress is still being made. For now, here is an extract but like all WiP, changes could be made. Here, Anna meets the surviving colonists of Camelot.
For context, following a disaster, the colonists of Camelot believe they are the last humans on Mars, so when Anna arrives and informs them she is a survivor from Merlin, (the twin colony to Camelot), they are excited and dubious in equal measure.
Belated best wishes for a productive and safe new year. I sincerely hope all of your endeavours bear the ripest fruit.
Myself, i’m currently on Mars, blending the sci-fi and horror genres to create, ‘Anna.’ The sole survivor of catastrophe at her colony, Anna, against all odds manages to reach Camelot; the only other colony and last bastion of humanity on the planet. What will she find? Who will she find, and will tragic events follow her?
Just for kids they say. Those bedtime stories filled with magic, goblins and unicorns, right? What do you think?
A novel exploring and challenging preconceptions of motherhood, mental health, disability, and addictions, ‘A Faerie Tale,’ is an original entry into the dark fantasy genre.

First published in 2017, Gospel was a blunt, shocking story of stolen innocence and retribution. Now upon reflection, I believe I left out minutiae that could put air in the bellows of the story, and make the content burn brighter. So now I have.
