My Current Project

The series continues - there are still plenty more adventures to come. Where will it all end? Will the twins ever find their parents? And will Uncle Richard finally believe what the children have been telling him? Keep reading to find out what happens next...




And, of course, Max will continue to have the occasional solo mini-adventure. Look out for his new short story, Max's Hallowe'en Adventure, which is now available on Kindle and as a paperback from Amazon.


"Oh no," groans Max. "That sounds far too scary. Do I really have to go? Couldn't you write something else, like Max has a nice, relaxing holiday?"


Oops, perhaps I shouldn't have mentioned it in front of him!

Following on from The Shadow of the Tudor Rose and Max's Hallowe'en Adventure, the 10th and 11th books in the series will be The Shadow of the Witchfinder and The Shadow of the Shifting Sands:




The county of Essex wasn’t a safe place to be in the mid-seventeenth century, thanks to the presence of a certain Matthew Hopkins, otherwise known as the “Witchfinder General”. The Lancelot twins, their talking cat Max, and friend Charlie, are about to discover just how unsafe it was. Journeying back in time to the year 1645, the young time-travellers are on a special rescue mission, but soon find themselves in great danger. When Jemima is overheard conversing with Max, she is suspected of sorcery and it’s only a matter of time before they fall into the hands of … the Witchfinder.




Miles and miles of nothing but sand; massive dunes like golden mountains stretch as far as the eye can see, and a heat haze shimmers beneath the punishing glare of the desert sun. This is the sight that greets four young travellers from the future when they arrive in the heart of the Rub’ Al Khali desert, otherwise known as the Empty Quarter.

But what has brought them to this inhospitable environment? Only Max the talking Tonkinese cat can answer this, for he has been here before…

Where will their quest take them next? Keep reading to find out...
