“It’s one of those ‘one of a kind, never read that before’ books … it’s a great read and will change your perceptions of the world and make you think twice about what humanity really is.” Confessions of a Book Lover

Luke hates nature, preferring the excitement of computer games to dull walks in the countryside, but his view of the world around him drastically begins to change when enigmatic loner, Guy, shows him some of the secrets that the very planet itself appears to be hiding from modern society.
Hidden behind the everyday screen of school and family life, Luke tumbles into a fascinating world of magic and fantasy, where transformations and shifting identities become second nature.
‘PICA’ – book 1 in the Gaia Trilogy – will be published in March 2016 by Accent Press.
I can now finally reveal the fantastic cover.

My exciting news is that I’ve just signed a contract for a three book deal with Accent Press.
‘Pica’ will be the first novel in the Young Adult ‘Gaia Trilogy’. The novel is ready for editing and due some time soon in 2015.
Pica Pica is the latin name for a magpie. The novels consider how people in the 21st century have forgotten how to manipulate natural powers once common in ancient times. When Luke meets Guy – a strange and lonely boy – he begins to see a glimpse of the powers that humans once possessed. The Gaia Trilogy explores environemental themes that affect the entire planet.
I’d like to thank Sam Curtis and Lorraine Mace, and I look forward to working with Accent Press on ‘Pica’ and the Gaia Trilogy.
Exciting times ahead.
