Buy direct from this web site to support the "buy small, buy local" ethos.

It takes years to research, write, edit and produce a book. It will sell for the price of a box of chocolates. BUT! a book is better than chocolates (you never thought you'd hear me say that) because you can devour it more than once and it still won't make you fat.

Printed novels are also available through the usual trade channels, your local bookshop and Make a note of the ISBN and you're good to go.

Small volumes such as short stories, poetry and children's activity books are not available from bookshops as the profit margins just aren't there for either party. Sad, but there it is. There are purchase links on the individual pages. If you want to buy direct please get in touch.

Beware of "free download" sites offering pirated digital copies of books. You don't know what malware you may be downloading along with the stolen "free" text.
