Broken Wings

Short Stories Ongoing Series

Broken Wings is a series of (mostly) SFF short stories, which will be published as a collection when complete.

Paranormal Romance


Everyone lives a little underground.
On the London Underground, you can bump into just about anyone. Sometimes it's an acquaintance you'd rather not make. Sometimes it's an old friend. And sometimes it's someone who means much more to you than that.
With sharper teeth.

Dystopian Fantasy


Scale the mountain. Ring the bell. Buy your freedom. Or trade the prize to change the world.
Mia's life is defined by the Surge. The race comes every five years, and she's determined to win it. She'll make it to the top first, ring the bell and set her family free.
But victory comes at a price. The faster she runs, the more people she'll condemn to death in the valley below.
In Unterstrom, only the strongest survive.



"I can't believe how good this book was, I absolutely adored it and I will be reading it again often. We follow Mia in these 30-odd pages and we see such an evolution, really important messages, things that tore my heart out, and when I turned the last page, I was crying."

~ Read to Ramble 


"This is one of the most intense short stories I have ever read. It's absolutely impressive."

~ Servillas Speaks

"A bittersweet story about humanity you need to read."

~ Pearls Cast Before a McPig


"This short story packs a punch hard enough that I felt a physical ache in my chest, and when I finished I just had to lay and stare at the ceiling for a few full minutes."

~ El's Book Reviews 

Dystopian Science Fiction


Some secrets are best left buried.
With the latest land reclamation project, the Daggett mansion is finally accessible again; rich pickings for a crew like Mara's.
It was supposed to be a simple heist, planned to perfection, but there's something in the water that they hadn't anticipated. And inside the mansion: bodies and memories.
It turns out that Mara picked this mark for a reason. She's about to remember what it is.



"A short, but intense story. Pulling no punches it delivers pain, heartbreak and suspense. If you're looking for a gritty and dark read, look no further."

~ Pearls Cast Before a McPig


"Incredibly creepy and dark! A Christmas tale for those who like the darker things in life for sure!"

~ The Caffeinated Reader 

Dystopian Science Fiction


In a split-second, everything can change.
In Legacy A, sunlight is a privilege. Miss a day of your assigned job, turn up late or misbehave, and your rank drops. Let your rank drop too low and you'll be on the night shift for the rest of your life.
Sarah's heading straight for that final demotion when her phone starts showing her photos of things that haven't happened yet: a building, blue tiles, and a man who's more familiar than he should be.
The only possible explanation is too crazy to contemplate.

Contemporary Horror


A friend is for life, not just for the holidays.
The Larsons are getting away from it all, to a cottage they've rented on the Devon coast. With them is their daughter Gemma, a reluctant twelve-year-old who'd rather be playing Animal Crossing than sitting on the beach with her boring parents.
But then Mr Larson discovers the troubled history of their cliffside cottage and things start to get interesting.
Gemma is about to make a friend.
