After being made redundant from his job in financial services in 1990, Jeff did a Norman Tebbit and got on his bike and went looking for work. He eventually ended up in East Anglia where he still resides with his wife, two grown up children and an over active Border Collie.
He has always had a passion for writing, but was only able to take it up again seriously following a change in circumstances a few years ago.
His initial intention was just to entertain people, but after about eighteen months of honing his craft he began to win writing competitions and hasn’t looked back since. To date he has written over a hundred short stories, mostly in the ghost/horror genre and some fifty of these have been published either in print anthologies or online.
He has now also fulfilled one of his lifetime ambitions by publishing his debut novel, Destiny of the sword, the first in a series called the Chronicles of Arkadia.
Arkadia has fallen.
The invader’s flag flies above the continent’s capitals.
All the Narmidian King, Starik Vesla, has to do to complete his conquest is invade the smaller northern kingdoms as yet untouched by the war.
Before he can do that, however, he must first destroy the remnants of Arkadia’s resistance. The fate of a continent is about to be decided.
Remada is burning!
The once proud nation lies in ruins, its people scattered and broken.
Hordes of Narmidians have invaded sweeping all before them.
In a world turned upside down where lifelong enemies now fight by your side against the common foe, Teren finds himself leading a last stand against the invaders.
Victory is glory. Defeat unthinkable.
Ghosts, monsters and demons aren’t real are they; they’re just made up to frighten children at Halloween?
Or are they? What if that creaking floorboard upstairs isn’t caused by the house settling? What if that banging shutter isn’t down to the wind and what if that cold spot in your lounge isn’t because of a draught?
Maybe you’re not alone after all. Maybe something is watching you right now.
War has come!
Enemy armies ravage the kingdom of Remada leaving a trail of death and destruction in their wake.
After surviving the slaughter at Vangor, veteran war hero Teren Rad and his son, Eryn, continue the search for Eryn’s fiancée, Tayla. Abducted by slavers she is being dragged through the wastelands of the east, a land inhabited by a treacherous and dangerous people known as the Salandori
War is Coming!

It is a time for heroes, for courage and for destiny.
