The Witch of Wicken Fen

This is a story of witchcraft, murder and demonic possession set in Dark Ages Britain. Huw, Captain of the Duke of Chepstow’s household guard, gets far more than he bargained for when he investigates a mysterious death in the tiny hamlet of Frome – a death which forces him to seek assistance from an unlikely and unwilling source. Click on the link below to read an extract.

    I like this! Would like to read the full story. 🙂
    If you publish this in epub form would it be also for Nook? I have one and would love to add this to my list!

      Yes, definitely, thanks for showing an interest 🙂

    Intriguing! Does the action move from the Welsh borders to East Anglia? I ask because my stepfather had a horrible nightmare about a circle of trees at the Wicken Fen in Cambridgeshire, and now refuses to go there on family walks…

      Possibly… The full story will be appearing some place soon so watch this space!

    Oh no, there is no full story on this site! I just finished (well almost finished) my fiction writing course, in the course of which we had to comment on other students’ stories. Most of them were drafts, unfinished work. Do I need to tell how disappointing it is to start reading a story and not being able to say where the writer is taking it. let alone enjoy a complete polished work? 🙂 I’ve got a e-reader (which is now on a tour in Europe with my son), but when I get it back, I’d like to purchase some of your e-books (I understand you are an indie author?) in epub format that is compatible with Kobo e-reader, so if you could please let me know where to find your books, that would be fabulous.
