I have taken the leap, shuffled through the rubble of publishing options – almost became buried under the avalanche – but no, here it is, the plans to publish BOOK ONE: Awakening start here.
WATCH THIS SPACE – The Amazon Kindle will be available late March 2018

I wrote this series after reading ‘Twilight’ and wishing I knew more about Edward Cullen than Bella – after all, we all know what being human feels like…
Think ‘Twilight’ meets ‘Gamo of Thrones’ and you are in the right mindset to enter the world of Fire & Ice :
For centuries, vampires were content to exist as creatures of myth and legend, barely making a footprint in the shifting sands of human consciousness, until Mother Nature unleashed the global pandemic of 1995 which wiped out most of humanity.
Vampire survival instincts have an edge of desperation. Humans are dying out, and they are forced out of the shadows. The London of 2010 becomes a vampire hive as they cluster around their decimated food supply, and ‘survival of the fittest’ is a stark reality.
Humans wish their world had ended, when, as a protected species, they are imprisoned, farmed as cattle, and siphoned for blood.
The cloud on the vampire horizon is that humans age and die. Suddenly, vampire immortality has an expiration date.
Connor is that rarity, a vampire and a doctor, who can treat a bleeding human –and not kill them. Tending to stricken vampires remains part of his duty; immortality has always been a tightrope walk over an abyss of insanity, and there are always those who fail to get it right.
After a century of living on his wits and feeding on humans he considered deserving of death, Connor views the human farm with distaste. His passion is to find a syntheticblood substitute.
Against this backdrop, Doctor Connor does the unthinkable; he falls in love with a human girl.
When he treats Rebekah, alarm bells ring. He realizes she is a free range human, and hiding her carries the death penalty. ‘Turning’ her in is a no-brainer, and yet…
Their worlds collide when Rebekah awakens in a vampire hospital and faces her worst fears — discovery and capture. Her euphoric relief, when it seems the beta-blockers have protected her from detection, turns to terror.
Connor grips Rebekah’s arm and her thundering heartbeat resonates through him. The tingling joy of being alive rushes through him again, and his journey into madness begins.
Rebekah cannot escape without the doctor’s help. Her fear of vampires tilts on its axis as Connor becomes her safe haven.
Connor’s stagnant existence is shattered as he embraces the feeling of being alive once more. Outwitting the vicious intent of a vindictive councilor, surviving attacks by the vampire councils’ guardsmen, and being sentenced to locked-in syndrome were never in Connor’s wildest imaginings and falling in love with a human girl was something he never expected.
And so, it begins…
