New Book, Lost in the Museum to be released 26 April 2014

New Book. Lost in the Museum to be released 26 April 2014.

What's not to love, a little mystery, a little romance, and a little fantasy all wrapped up in a place of historic magic everyone can visit. I just love the cover artwork by Geoff Popham & it has three of my stories in it, including one written with Eileen Mueller. It also has stories by Tim Jones, Lyn McConchie, Phillip Mann (nominated for the Arthur C.Clark Award 2014), Glyn MacLean and Tracie McBride of Dark Continents Publishing and more.  

Lose yourself in a museum where past, present and future collide. What does Weta’s giant mechanical baby do after hours? Who is altering the time space continuum? Where or when has James gone? What secrets is Tui Merriweather hiding? Dive into mayhem at a well-known Wellington waterfront destination. Going to the museum will never be the same again.

We hope to have it out soon as an e-book so if you live overseas, you too can enjoy losing yourself in the museum.

An alternate life

I have three "blogs" at the moment - and this one - well this one is at least temporarily out of the picture-

No 1  Wizard's Guide to Wellington -  it can be found at

No 2 - a little taste of my latest character, Miss Lilly Lionheart can be found on her blog at

No 3 - My most popular blog An Affliction of Poetry - with over 65,000 hits - I'm beginning to believe people really do like poetry after all...

 No 4 - Me - well my writing anyway, theoretically there is a blog - but mostly the good stuff is going to be kept "here" - it includes links to writing published on the internet and elsewhere. 
And I have recently added a facebook site that is intended to focus on writer opportunities and events here at

More of my work is available online, Twisty Christmas Tales, Friends (horror for adults in Baby Teeth), Dying for the Record (free online UK tomorrow project), Ahi Ka, written in conjunction with Eileen Mueller (now free on my blog )

That's it folks - all the best 
hope to see you about sometime
