|Pins and Feathers|
Victorian England, a time of great wealth and expansion but who drives this wealth? Men and women who live and work in terrible conditions, one such man is Abraham slaving in a quarry pit in the North of England.
He is witness to the tragic death of his best friend when he is crushed under tonnes of stone. Abraham is spurred into joining the struggle for union recognition during a time of social upheaval, but to relieve the pain of his friend’s death he also becomes embroiled in clog fighting. This brutal sport of gladiatorial intensity will often end the fighter’s life.
“I have no words for the grief the gods have inflicted upon my tired soul. My future is only darkness and my past... My past is gone forever. I have love burned into me and denied me.”
Lancelot and his companions are forced to flee Albion to protect Rhea from Taranis. Nimue tears the veil between the worlds and the travellers discover they are returned to the forest in which Lancelot and Tancred first fell in love. With renewed hope they set forth toward Camelot with the cart containing the items of power. When they reach Chester, they meet old friends and new enemies forcing them to run once more.
First they travel through the harsh deserts of Albion and on to the cold, dead world of Lyonesse. When Lancelot wakes from this final journey he makes a promise to Taranis in exchange for Tancred’s sanity and Rhea’s safety. Little does he know that the fulfilment of this promise will change the course of their lives forever. When they finally face Balar this fulfilment of this promise is the revenge the petulant and cruel god demands in exchange for a ceasefire.
"Peace, the scent captured me and held me... But only for a moment. Now, Tancred and I must fight for the gods of Albion against the Titans. Peace - a firefly's brief flash of life."
Camelot's Champion is now the King of Albion and his fate unfolds rapidly. He is bound on a quest. Taranis has charged him to find items containing the power necessary to defeat the Titans before they wake and destroy Albion. However, it's never quite that simple.
He must travel the length and breadth of his new land with Nimue, the wife of his dead father and the woman who tried to kill Arthur. Fortunately, he also has Rhea, his adopted daughter who happens to be a Titan and of course Tancred. The young man must face his greatest challenge with Lancelot at his side, but will it be enough? Can Lancelot hold Tancred together?
Both men are drawn forward while they seek the power the gods need to fight the Titans. All rests once more on their broad shoulders, how long can they continue to carry the burden and fight the wars?

However, they soon learn they are facing a threat more terrible than anything the traitor can conjure alone.

|As Though Everything Depended On Me|
Journalists, if they are honest and capable, are among the strongest guardians of democracy. No tyranny can tolerate them, no democracy can function without them. For this reason they are among the most endangered people on our planet. In the tumultuous period of German history between the World Wars a brave journalist, having survived the horrors of the First World War and determined to prevent another war, had to oppose all forms of chauvinism, especially the rising tide of Nazism. In that time of moral degeneration Kurt Lenz raised his eloquent voice against barbarism. When the barbarians triumphed, he refused to flee. He believed that each one of us has to act as though everything depended on him. His type of courage, greater than that of even the bravest frontline soldier, could have only one outcome at that time. With this novel the author wishes to pay tribute to those courageous journalists and their counterparts in today's world.
In Southern Britain, the Giants Dance stands alone on the Great Plain. For 500 years its massive trilithons have remained unruled by any chief. With invaders from distant lands attacking Britain's shores to steal its precious tin, another king must be chosen-this is the Quest of the Merlin, high priest and shaman. He brings together U'thyr Pendraec, the Terrible Head, and the beautiful Y'gerna, wife of another man, and from them a child is born...a boy who can move a sacred stone and take the ancient dagger beneath...a boy who will become High King. With totems of power and an ancestral sword from the depths of the sacred lake, Ardhu Pendraec assumes the mantle of the Stone Lord, ruler of the Great Trilithon, protector of ancient Britain
|Passion of Lancelot|
“I am home. I still find it hard to believe. I am home and I have hope. I know the gods are waiting, I know I have to stop the evil trying to steal my peace, but for now – for now I just want to rebuild my family. With luck they will allow me that at least.”
Lancelot might be home but all is not well. His betrayal of Tancred has driven a permanent chasm between the men – one which might never allow them to be happy. For months Lancelot lives with a strange emotional hiatus until he and Arthur are attacked and they are once more faced with their true passions and destiny.
Epona, the goddess who has chosen Lancelot as her champion, finally decides he has taken enough time to himself and he must act to save Albion and Taranis from her son. Lancelot however isn’t convinced after what he sacrificed the last time he tangled with Balar. She ensures he has little choice and forces him to pursue her agenda. With a small cohort of companions Lancelot must face the largest army ever raised in Albion and defeat the son Morgana and Arthur created.
Their journey north is a harsh quest for the royal house of Albion but they draw together, forging new bonds which will bind them forever – making them a weapon able to face their final great threat.
|Kill Lady de Winter|
It’s the story of blunt knives trying to wound, and poisons sneaked into bedside glasses, and fired shots lighting moonless nights, missing their targets, or reaching them. And it’s the story of shaking thoughts and tearful passions, hidden behind dirty aprons and refined capes; It’s a story of murders-to-happen, judgment and injustice, and justice, of course; and it’s a tale of love and the impossibility of it, and possibility and the tastes and hopes, ruthless as a daytime dream and sweet as a smear of jam left on the index finger.
|Lancelot And The Grail|
“I was once called, Wolf. Now I am damned to a half life of madness, grieving and broken. If I have to return to my King, he will want the greatest Knight of Camelot, but I am not that creature. I am a man who has learnt to hate what he once loved. How can I help my betrayer kill my fey father, even if it is to save Camelot and her people?”
Lancelot, alone and shattered is found by the only person capable of saving what’s left of his mind. When the damaged knight finally manages to scrape his awareness together he reluctantly returns to Camelot, only to find Arthur almost as broken.
The two men must face each other, over a vast gulf of betrayal in order to confront their enemies for the last time.
As they travel from Camelot, into the Land of the Dead and on to Albion, they remember why and how they became one all those years ago. Lancelot discovers that the path of the warrior is not just about killing, but also about compassion and there are some things that you just cannot escape, no matter how far you run.

The last decades of the 19th century: the European empires are competing to gobble up the rest of the earth. Their inborn “superiority” seems to guarantee success, and the “natives” will have to submit.
But some Europeans refuse to cooperate with their own leaders and they risk their life to protect the “natives”.
Such a man was Baron Maklin, a famous apolitical scientist and at first only a scientist. But he learns from the “natives” and life in general, becoming a political actor, a lover, and a believer in spiritual realities taught to him by the “savages”.
