I recently published my debut novel, Cirque, through Amazon's Kindle Direct Publishing. It's a satirical fantasy crammed with comedy, drama and parody.

Check it out here: (UK)


Le Cirque du Fantastique are, despite their name, a fairly average circus act, annually touring mountain settlements for what little the villagers can spare. But all of that changes when one of their performances is attacked by a mountain tiger, made hungry by a sparse winter.
Put in a life or death situation, one of their number, a young dancer called Skye, discovers that she has a power over the beast, and incorporates it into a performance that will change all of their lives forever.
But there is a reason that Skye has a talent with animals; a reason that puts not only herself but all those who associate with her in danger.
As the troupe’s fame and fortune progresses, they are forced to make the ultimate decision between loyalty and wealth, friendship and celebrity, and, along their journey, discover what they truly value most in life.

I hope you enjoy it. Let me know what you think!
