I’m ecstatic to announce a collaboration between myself and Neil Gaiman, revolving around ancient mythologies!
I’ve recently watched Uncharted, which has this Indiana Jones / National Treasure / Tomb Raider vibe to it. Rather unsurprising, given it’s based on a game (which I found out later). Anyway, it’s a fun little movie if you’re looking for something that is absolutely non-brain-taxing, like history, travel, and action, don’t mind the occasional […]
This, that, a nod to Asterix in our latest collection of antiquarian curios 🙂 The picture on the is from recently uncovered Roman slave quarters in Pompeii. Readers of my novels know the attention I pay to the “invisible people” of society, those who weren’t mentioned much in the writing of the 1% elite. Because […]
Exactly a year ago I published a blog post here with the somewhat dubious title of I Quit My Job So I Could Write!. I thought I’d review how that went…

The Space Adventure Book Bundle! From […]
I adored the previous Alex Southerland novels, so when I got the ARC for this one I practically squealed with joy. It was worth the wait! What to Expect Another paranormal case in the wonderful urban fantasy series of Alex Southerland, PI. This time time he gets hired (coerced, more like) into helping the mayor […]
I owe you guys a bit of an update on how the whole “quitting my job so I could write” is progressing. I’m know many of you are keen for the next Felix case, and some might have noticed the lack of blog posts. Well, wonder no more! I assure you it’s all part of […]
A few interesting finds today, from prehistory through Roman and Byzantine times, up to modern recreations which are always fun — especially when alcohol is involved!
As one year ends and another starts, I thought I’d share some reflections and exciting news. Keep reading to discover some excellent reads from authors you probably haven’t heard about (but should), and to learn about my plans for Felix’s next adventure (because, yes, the blog’s title is no joke!)
