The Guardians is a very different genre from Heronfield’.

The Guardians

It is all too easy to lose focus on what is really important in life when surrounded by the pressures and demands of modern living.  It can take something extraordinary, something out of this world, to re-focus us on life’s priorities.

For archaeologist Rick Gibson the priority is to discover a ‘great find’ which will make him a household name, and he is prepared to sacrifice everything – his home, his wife, his son – to achieve this.  After years of disappointment Gibson’s luck changes with the discovery of an ancient manuscript detailing the hiding place of the Aztec treasure of Montezuma.  Gibson leads a dig to Mexico to uncover the famous treasure of Eldorado, but it is not as easy as he had assumed for the treasure is guarded.  ‘The Guardians’ come from the world of the dead to protect the treasure and, one by one, the members of Gibson’s party suffer the consequences.

The suspense builds from a gentle beginning in suburban England  to a terrifying climax with supernatural forces of good and evil battling for supremacy.  Woven skilfully into the narrative are the questions which all humans face, and the answers to which will bring life, or death, for Gibson.

If you can’t wait until 20th, then take a look at ‘The Prologue’

‘The Guardians’ – one step closer to publication!

I now have a professionally proof-read copy of ‘The Guardians’ which Maxine Linnell has been working hard on for me. There is still work for me to do on the manuscript, and a cover to design, but things are coming together.

One step closer to publication!

Aztec statues and rattle snakes!

With the help of my friend Lorna Gray (who designed the cover for Heronfield) I am just beginning the task of creating a cover for my new novel – The Guardians.  As part of this I am presently immersed in pictures of Aztec statues and rattle snakes?  Intrigued?  Watch this space!
