You spend days, weeks, years bringing them to life. Nurturing them. Getting to know what makes them tick. What drives their actions and their emotions. You'd think after all that time together you would build a relationship of sorts. Have each other's backs. But it seems that's not the case. In my latest book, Gryffin is in a particularly difficult situation - personally and physically - and instead of trying to help me figure a way to get him out of it, he's doing nothing. F
Another 4423 words for Cronus and 1791 on Chaos since my last update. Cronus is coming together nicely - had a bit of an epiphany last night. I now have the first half wrapped up and an ending - just need to connect the two. Easy! 🤨🤔😁 #spacepirate #NomadSeriesHunter #workinprogress #NomadSeries #Gryffin #cyborg #Cronus #Chaos #spaceship #sciencefiction #scifi #KAFinn #Ares #Nemesis #Perses
I've been asked a lot lately about book 4 in the Nomad Series so thought I'd give a bit of an update. I'm still working on it but have had a little problem. I also started a new series and those characters are fighting for attention too. So, to keep everyone happy, I'm working on five books at the moment: book 4 and 5 from the Nomad Series and book 1,2 and 3 from a new paranormal type series. I'm hoping at least one of these 5 books will be wrapped up this year.
Things have been a little crazy lately thanks to moving back to Ireland but I'm still finding a little time every day to spend with Gryffin and the gang. The word count on Cronus is 102K and the 'how it all began' for Gryffin and Bray is heading towards 30k. There are another two books in the works which I'm really excited about but I'll keep them to myself until they're looking a little healthier. In the meantime, here's a small (unedited) snippet from tonight's session. Gry
I haven't posted for a while but that doesn't mean I've forgotten all about book 4. I'm still working on it along with another Nomad book based on Bray and Gryffin's background. Life is seriously hectic right now but I am 100% committed to continuing with the series. A lot of exciting stuff happens in book 4 and I really want to do it justice. To keep you going, I've included a small snippet from my 2nd favourite character, Garvan. The more time I spend with this guy the more
I added another 1115 words to the tally for Cronus today. I spent some time with the suave Garvan who, even in a sticky situation, still makes me smile. The continued lack of response finally gets to One. He stands up and beats his fist against the panel at the side of the bars. ‘Answer me!’
Garvan slowly sits up, a big grin on his face. ‘Oh, hey Harvey. How long have you been there?’
One hits the panel again. ‘You will respect me!’
Garvan gets to his feet and crosses his
A few weeks ago I said that I was writing a book about how Gryffin... well, became Gryffin. I've just had a 'light bulb going on in head' moment! (Actual footage of moment below) I'm writing Cronus at the same time and - if you've read the other books in the series - you know that I like to take the story from different viewpoints. Gryffin's story was a little short on that so I've decided that he can share the book with his little brother. He's not usually one for sharing bu
I'm still working through book 4, Cronus, and I'm really loving where the story is going. I do have a small problem, however. I've been enticed by another book idea. While working on Cronus, more about Gryffin's past has come to light. A lot of the characters are wondering about what made him the way he is. So, I decided to answer their questions. I've started working on a book about Gryffin's past - while still writing Cronus of course! It's going to cover from when Rayde fo
It's taken a while but I finally surpassed the 40k word count mark! 41,872 to be exact. It's really starting to take shape now. Luckily, my characters are behaving for the moment which is really helping. Fingers crossed they keep it up! #Terra #scifi #spaceopera #spaceship #Gryffin #Nomad #NomadSeries #amwriting #scrivener #wordcount #novel #Cronus
It seems like a very long time since I seriously worked on my books. Having a baby 7 months ago sort of took priority :) But my characters aren't prepared to wait in the dark any longer - they're getting a tad impatient and incredibly bored! So, to help with their (and my) frustration I've contacted Misty Evans. She is an incredibly talented author who also helps other authors plot their books. She was invaluable helping me on Nemesis and Perses and I've started the ball roll
A very nice person has left the following great review for the boxset available on Amazon. I really love (and appreciate) when readers take the time to leave a detailed review of my books - especially on all three at once! So, whoever you are - thank you :) http://amzn.to/2sgGQ01 #amazon #reviews #scifi #boxset #cyborg #ares #nemesis #perses #NomadSeries #Nomad #Gryffin #cronus #book #spaceship #spaceopera
I'm all set for the bookshop - books, flyers, bookmarks and small business cards - check! The Village Bookshop in Greystones, Co. Wicklow has agreed to stock my three books! Having my series in the local bookshop is a really big deal for me. Over the years I've spent hours in the bookshop searching for the next book to add to my shelf at home. Knowing that my series will be there beside all the other books feels amazing :) #villagebookshop #Greystones #paperback #cyborg #ares
Keith will be starting the audiobook for Perses in the next week or so! I'm really excited to 'hear' all my characters again.

Sorry I've been so quiet lately. I had a baby girl at the end of November so I've been a little preoccupied :) Things are starting to fall into a somewhat chaotic routine now so I thought it's a good time to show my face here again and give a little update. Perses had been edited, re-edited, proofread, re-proofread, formatted and loaded on Amazon ready for it's 7th January release date. Pre-orders for the book have been amazing so thank you to everyone who has ordered their c
I've spent the last few weeks formatting the three books into one boxset - not easy with over 300k words! Great fun!

The amazing Jennifer from Gypsy Heart Editing returned the final draft last night. I parked myself in front of the screen for the morning and completed the last of the edits! It's done! Wohoo! I'll be loading it on Amazon tomorrow for pre-order with a release date in January. In the meantime, check out the trailer for Bray and Garvan's adventure. #spaceopera #nomad #brayden #KAFinn #scifi #sciencefiction #novel #trailer #space #spaceship #earth #foundation #perses #ares #neme
