“That’s not what that means.”
Set in the strange world of Immortal Engine, One Stone is the story of the best assassin and the worst murderer in the wealthiest city in the world as they interfere with the affairs of kings.
A runaway slave punches guards, dinosaurs, God.

My second novel, The Sixth Age of Sand was written one week at a time in 2013. It’s a story in the Young Adult mould, about teenagers dealing with a mysterious event and suddenly gaining magical powers.
