The Girl from a Thousand Fathoms
“I read the book in two days and couldn’t put it down” Fan mail
“A quirky gem of a book on land and sea. Recommended.”
“Escapism? Absolutely! And what more could you ask for with all the craziness going on in the world. This book is an absolute delight and I strongly recommend it.” Kate Kelly, Yeovil Prize Winner
“Sparking with ideas – and immensely readable and fun.” Amazon review
“from the same well as Pratchett and Adams (think Good Omens and Dirk Gently but at a tangent) but in as unique a voice as theirs.” Peter Sutton Reviews
Tim Wassiter, P.I. is a new-age detective. No old-school cynicism, no cheap whisky in the drawer. He drinks tea, keeps chickens, and believes in magic. His ex-partner mocks him and the old lady down the road just wants him to find her missing cat. But Tim knows magic works and he can use it to solve crime.
Now Tim has his first real client, a mysterious and attractive woman with some powerful, dangerous, and increasingly impatient friends. As things get more violent, more bewildering and more utterly weird,
Tim discovers the case is bigger than he ever imagined.
Because everything is connected – from missing cats to warming oceans, sea-monsters and little white flowers, the past and the future, even the crazy stranger who stepped out of his dreams. And everyone is looking for a girl who almost certainly does not exist. The Girl from a Thousand Fathoms.
And magic isn’t just real, it’s probably going to get him killed.
Warning! May contain mermaids, cats, magic, and sea monsters.

Third Instar – a novella
“feverish invention is on full display here, with an impressive amount of incident and detail packed into just 54 pages, which conclude on an appropriately haunting note.” Adam Groves, The Bedlam Files
In a city poised on the edge of the world the grifter Mazehew hustles to survive. Everyone who comes to look over the Edge has their reasons, but Mazehew didn’t like the sky beyond the railings, a sky that reached up and out and also down. He didn’t like the utter absence of ground inches from his feet, or the way the blue air faded to stars in the evening, up and out, and also down.
Then Mazehew meets a young woman and his life and his place in the world is changed forever.
