More Audiobook News!

Without Mercy (Siobhan Dunmoore Book 5) is now out in audio format. As of writing this, it’s available pretty much everywhere except Amazon and Audible, which usually take 2-3 times as long to publish audiobooks as the rest of the retailers. Get it here:

If you get your audiobooks via Amazon or Audible, check regularly. It’ll eventually show up there as well.

In other news, my editor has been busily working on A Peril So Dire, the fourth Constabulary Casefiles adventure. And we’ve officially entered summer in our part of the Great White North.  We were off diving the St. Lawrence River last Thursday, did a short nature hike today and will do a longer hike in the Gatineau Park tomorrow.

Stay safe and healthy, fellow humans.

Another One Done

I finished writing A Peril So Dire (Constabulary Casefiles #4) last night — yes, it now has a title — and have already begun the revision process. At this rate, it should be out in mid to late June. And then it’s on to the final installment in the Ashes of Empire series, Imperial Dawn.

Stay safe and healthy, fellow humans.

Audiobook News

First the audiobook version of Howling Stars (Decker’s War Book 4) is out wherever audiobooks are sold.

Second the audiobook version of Victory’s Bright Dawn (Siobhan Dunmoore Book 4) is being published as I write this. Our amazing narrator, Stephen Floyd, completed it in record time, and he’ll start on Without Mercy (Siobhan Dunmoore Book 5) soon. It’ll take a week or three before Victory’s Bright Dawn makes it to all retailers, so be sure to check regularly.

In the meantime, Spring is truly here in our part of the Great White North, with temperatures well above freezing and the snow mostly gone. I’m still working away on the fourth Constabulary Casefiles (which still doesn’t have a title) and I’m about 70% done.

Stay safe and healthy, fellow humans.

Dunmoore #4 in audiobook is a go!

I’m pleased to announce that we’ve signed a contract to have Victory’s Bright Dawn (Siobhan Dunmoore Book 4) produced in audio, narrated by Stephen Floyd. It’s the first of the Dunmoores we’re producing ourselves — Dunmoore 1-3 were produced by Tantor Media — and you can rest assured that the remainder of the Dunmoore books will come out in audio as well as we go forward. When will it appear? In roughly three months from now, so mid-June.

Stay safe and healthy, fellow humans.

Spring is Almost Sprung

The weather in our part of the Great White North is looking up these days. The sun is higher in the sky and feels so good on one’s face, the snow is slowly melting and daytime temperatures are now almost consistently hovering a degree or two above freezing. All in all, it looks like winter’s back is almost broken. But this being Canada, we can still get a snowstorm or two before it truly ends. Still, the trend is towards warmer days and that’s what counts.

In other news, I’m fast approaching the halfway mark on the fourth Constabulary Casefiles adventure, which sees Caelin Morrow go up against her most perilous adversary to date. It still doesn’t have  a title, strangely enough, let alone a cover design, yet those will come to me eventually.

And that’s about it. Stay safe and healthy, fellow humans.


I just finished writing Fear No Darkness (Ghost Squadron #4). It took a bit longer than I’d hoped, in large part because I wrote most of it from the first person perspective – Colonel Zack Decker was telling the story – and that always takes a wee bit more time and effort. Now comes the revision process which will take until the end of the month, then it’s off to my editor, so it’s looking like a late February release date.

Happy New Year

May you live as long as you want and never want as long as you live!

May Your Pockets Be Heavy and Your Heart be Light. May Good Luck Pursue You Each Morning and Night.

May you always have a clean shirt, a clear conscience, and enough coins in your pocket to buy a pint!

May your troubles be less and your blessings be more, and nothing but happiness come through your door.

May luck be your friend in whatever you do and may trouble be always a stranger to you.

And may we all be alive at this same time next year.


Happy New Year to all my readers.


Yes, I know. I haven’t posted anything in six weeks, but sometimes, inspiration doesn’t come all that well. In any case, I’m 90 percent done with Fear No Darkness (Ghost Squadron #4), so expect it sometime in early February. And now, to celebrating the new year.

Winter is Here

We woke up to a carpet of white stuff this morning, only a few days after I put our snowman folk art statue we call Mister Winter by the front door. Though this first snowfall of the season is unlikely to remain on a ground that’s not yet frozen, it marks a drastic change from the balmy, September-like weather we’ve had for the first part of November. Oh well. I’m not a winter person. Never have been, never will be. But when you live in the Great White North, you get to be a person experiencing winter whether you want to or not.

On the writing front, Fear No Darkness (Ghost Squadron #4) is slowly inching its way to the three-quarters completion mark but I don’t see a December release as realistic any more. Mid to late January seems to be the newest release date. There’s just so much going on in the story that it’s taking me longer than expected. I also have a high level concept of the next, as of yet untitled, Constabulary Casefiles story, which I’ll start working on once I complete Fear No Darkness.

And that’s about it from here. Stay safe and healthy, my friends.
