Welcome to my new blog. I'm currently working on the first chapter of The Company of Heaven . I'll be uploading it some time in May.

There will be flowers and gemstones, good and bad behaviour. Angels and archangels, and all the company of heaven. All of which is to say, I won't know until I've written it.

In the meantime, you can pre-order Tales from Lindford here https://spckpublishing.co.uk/tales-from-lindford-456 It will be published on May 20th.
