How we got here
It all started with my first novel, Fate’s Ambition, a speculative work about an average guy who could make people believe anything he wanted with just a touch.
Whilst using his ability to track down a friend who disappeared, he soon drew the attention of a powerful but secretive group seeking to keep the world’s powers in balance. In walks Agent Carrie Harris, and I soon fell in love with the borderline sociopath crowned with strawberry blonde hair. She’s an intelligent and ruthless killer, with a complete inability to know who not to fall for.
Then the undead arrived in a page-turning series as our heroes rushed to get away from the stinking hoards ready to eat your flesh. A fun romp to write and devoured by the fans.
It was a fan who first planted the seed. Rosanne is her name. What would happen if the two worlds collide? How would Carrie deal with everything turned on its head? If you read on, you’re going to find out.
Stopping Power started as a short story as a bit of fun and helped sate my need to write and keep her alive somewhere other than in my head, but it was also a question.
Did readers want more?
They answered and Stopping Power became Stopping Power – Brass Pike and the first episode in a series of around fifteen, each released around once a month which continued to chronicle our hero’s reaction to the mind-bending news that life isn’t quite what we all believed.
Stopping Power – Episode One – Brass Pike
After a gruelling training exercise in the Scottish mountains, Agent Carrie Harris is called to a place hidden from all civilisation. Ill-prepared and under-equipped, she discovers a secret world filled with gruesome evidence of events she can’t comprehend.
As the time for creeping around comes to an end, can she look past the horror and bring her skills to bear to put an end to the unimaginable nightmare?
Stopping Power – Episode Two – Contact
Unable to hide from what she’d seen at Brass Pike, Agent Harris dives feet first back into what she does best, but can she push away her nightmares long enough to keep herself safe?
