There's nothing new to report from me, I'm afraid. But I'm still here and still chasing that pesky, elusive muse. :)

Remember last year I said I would be contributing to a massive book being produced by Ausxip Publishing: 'XENA: THEIR COURAGE CHANGED OUR WORLD'? Well the exciting news is it's due out on September 4th! The link to preorder the kindle version is already available on Amazon, and preorder links to the print versions (paperback and deluxe) will be appearing very soon. More details about the book can be found here.

Due to the old Demon subdomain I used being retired, the URL of this website has changed. It's no longer simply a redirect to but actually is So if you have previously linked to this website, you may need to update your link. I'm also going to have to change the email address I've had since 1998! When that's up and running, I'll update this website with the new one.

Happy New Year to everyone. :) Still nothing to report on the writing front, I'm afraid. Here's hoping that will begin to change in 2020.
