Oracle Deck - A Journey through Mythology

I am working on the artwork now.

I have included a couple of the pieces in the Artwork section

to give you a feel of how the deck will look.  

It took a lot of years to get Book 1 'Return of the Sleeping Warriors' out into the world...Book 2 'Battle for the Second Realm' set it's own pace... but it is finally here!

I have been working on so much over the last year. Book 2 is now available as a paperback and eBook and I think you are going to like it. 

Book 3 (I'll keep the title a secret for just a little while longer) but I can assure you,

it has been written and is a little past first draft stage. This book just poured out of me. And was written in around four months. Scheduled for release early 2022. 

Book 4 has to wait until I have completed my oracle deck. The outline has been written, I know (in general terms) what is going to happen and I don't think you'll see it coming.  

Hear what readers have to say

When Magic Awakes - Book 1
Return of the Sleeping Warriors


"This urban fantasy tells the story of a suburban Melbourne family and how magic comes into their lives. When something evil moves in next door, teenage siblings Dana and Michael find themselves in possession of powers they hadn't even imagined. This is a terrific story, not just about myth, legend and magic, but also of family bonds. Full of adventure and legends from around the world, it's a great read for teens and adults alike."

When Magic Awakes - Book 2
Battle for the Second Realm


"Battle for the Second Realm sees the continuing story of suburban Melbourne siblings Dana and Michael and their awakening to magic. It flows seamlessly from Return of the Sleeping Warriors, and introduces us to some interesting new characters. The blend of myth and legend with suburban life makes for a story that will keep you reading, wondering what's going to happen next. As with Return of the Sleeping Warriors, a great read for teens and adults."
