My new book ‘The Wolf In Us‘ is Out Now and available to purchase online from Amazon! ‘The Wolf In Us‘ is the sequel to ‘The Wolf In Me‘, ‘The Wolf In You‘, and ‘Vega – The Vampire King‘, and is the final chapter in the story of the Olivia Hunter, Vega, and The Wolf. ‘The Wolf In Us‘ is a book about revelations and about secrets coming to light, but also about life, loss, and what it means when you find out something about yourself or about something you believed you knew is not as as you always thought it was. ‘The Wolf In Us‘ sees Olivia Hunter reflect on who she is, what she is, where she has been, what she has done, and where her journey takes her next can only be read to be believed – but by the end you know the definitive answer to the question: What is The Wolf In Us? 🐺
In this episode of my podcast I talk about my new novel ‘The Wolf In Us‘ – the sequel to my novels ‘The Wolf In Me‘, ‘The Wolf In You‘, and ‘VEGA – The Vampire King‘. I talk about the writing process of “The Vampire and The Wolf” book series, from conception to conclusion, and how I accidentally created my own fictional world in which my stories take place.

My Poem “Keeping the lights on”

This Christmas, at least here in the UK,
it is going to be hard to keep the lights on within some houses because of the
high price of electricity that some households
are going to be forced to have to pay...
this Christmas people young and old
are literally going to have to
sit in the dark with no heating on
and they are literally going to have to
wrap themselves in blankets to keep warm,
because they know that they will be
unable to afford the total owed
on their eventual electricity bill...
this Christmas, more so than ever before,
people are going to have to choose
between buying presents for loved ones
or putting some money aside
for when the energy companies say
that it is time to pay up...
this Christmas people are going to
sacrifice their health, because they will
be unable to have what they need
to get well when they ultimately fall ill...
this Christmas people will have to
make choices that will have long-term consequences...
this Christmas people will have to
think even more about what they are spending
and how much things cost...
this Christmas people will have to
make the most of what they have,
because this Christmas everything is going to be expensive...
this Christmas people will have to
be creative and imaginative in many ways
as they gather around their Christmas tree
and they struggle to keep the lights on.
