My latest work, The Coward Smuggler, a short novel set in the same world as Exiles of the Bhel Sea, is now available for purchase on Amazon.


20k words approximately

73 pages

Arnulf is a drunk and a coward. His memories are scattered and full of holes. He doesn’t want to remember who he was or what he’s done. He knows he can’t. But when he meets Fedora’s gaze he can’t help himself – he finds himself caring for someone again. But something dangerous is coming. Something that will awaken his past and cut its way into his present, whether he wants it or not, whether he flees or not.
