While the WiP Shelf is the messy, creative part of my office, the Coming Soon shelf is the orderly side. Books listed here are either contracted or in production and only need polishing and buffing before they’re ready. Now that I’m getting the hang of this book-writing malarkey, I’m hoping to always have something on this page for you to look forward to…
From Jack’s first Christmas with Rio to the holiday he describes as his “scariest, loneliest Christmas”…
From realising that Captain Gareth Flynn is somone special he wantes to impress to Jack picking out a treat the two of them can enjoy together…
From Jack not understanding the concept of family to him going out of his way to make arrangements for the four of them to spend time together…
From Gareth feeling vulnerable, to Daniel and Nico finding innovative ways to handle a school project…
Midnight Tracks is a journey through the first five Power of Zero books. Here you can find backstory, outtakes, snippets, short stories and doodles. Some are old, some are newer. Some have been posted during blog hops and tours and on the website… and some are brand new and will only appear here.
This collection of glimpses is my gift to my newsletter subscribers… the people who, with their comments, questions and interest in Jack and Gareth and the world I’ve created around them, give me the courage to write.
I’m aiming to have this in your inboxes by Christmas Eve. And if you’re not on my mailing list yet, but would like to receive Midnight Tracks when it’s ready, you can subscribe here.
A Rathbone & McGowan Story
Me and Mrs Jones. Ian Rathbone hates the song with everything he has. When he risks his life to shut down illegal weapons labs in a country still recovering from a military coup and six years of anarchy he doesn’t want to come home to hear it blare through his apartment, a wordless confession that his partner Tom has strayed once more.
After eighteen months and too many infidelities to count, Ian can’t help but wonder why he stays with Tom. Especially when his new work partner is loyal, genuine, and genuinely tempting Patrick McGowan. The chemistry between them is undeniable, but Ian doesn’t cheat.
Before he acts on his growing attachment, he needs time to sort out his relationship with Tom. Patrick, though he has his own demons to battle and his own secrets to keep, is willing to give him that time.
But in a danger-filled job like theirs, and with an unseen enemy who works to take down the Sweepers before they can get to him, will they even stand a chance?
Rock & Art Theft #2
Falling in love is easy. Making it work can be a challenge.
Rock star Matisse Vervein and Detective Inspector Josh Ingram are as happily in love as they can be, but their jobs have a tendency to keep them further from each other than they both like. Add a concert tour, a baffling art theft case, and a stalker desperate for attention, and Matisse and Josh have their work cut out to get to their Happy Ever After.
They both understand team work, but being in love doesn’t just mean looking out for each other. It also means accepting help from your partner and letting yourself be vulnerable. Can Josh and Matisse learn that lesson in time to overcome the obstacles that stand in the way of their happiness?

Falcon has long admired the designs and the heart of the enigmatic craft master. When he learns of Minel’s illness, the warrior captain pleads with the man he loves to seek a cure and attempts to help. Only to learn that Minel’s illness is just the first step in the city council’s horrific plans.

Healing Glass is an LGBT fantasy adventure with its head in the clouds. If you like medieval backdrops, impressive world-building, and three-dimensional characters, then you’ll love Jackie Keswick’s socially-conscious adventure.
