Conspiracy Theorists & Detectives of the Fantastic

Image
As winter draws in, what better than a ghost story or two to add a thrill and a scare to these long, dark nights?

I am pleased to share details of Detectives of the Fantastic Volume II which features my new story Six Lights.

Who is haunting the staircase of an old pub and why does the ghost take exception to Jeremy's new partner? Perhaps TV psychic Darrell Morvay will have the answer?

A love story with a difference that will both scare your bones and warm your heart.

And what of the other stories in this anthology? Join Editor George Wilhite and the authors of Thirteen O'Clock Press on a hunt for the bizarre and strange. Is what they find supernatural, or is there a logical explanation for the terror they experience? What recorded stories will YOU come across in this anthology of the strange? The accounts appear real enough. They're just stories... right? Or perhaps some of these tales are real after all!

Saturn in Scorpio Special Offer

Image
How was Saturn in the intense, inscrutable and controlled sign of Scorpio for you?

Saturn may have moved into Sagittarius in December last year, but it's not through with Scorpio yet. Today (June 16) it travelled back into Scorpio, where it will remain until September 19.

To celebrate (or commiserate) Saturn's last stubborn stand in the sign of the Scorpion, my ebook   Saturn in Scorpio: Your Guide Through The Dark - is discounted on Amazon to $0.99 or £0.99 (or the equivalent in your currency).

Why bother when Saturn's so close to the end of its two and a half years in Scorpio?

Here are a few good reasons:
With 100 packed pages of information (including a bonus and timeless chapter on the Secondary Progressed Moon), it's an absolute bargain!If you have planets or points at 28 or 29 degrees of the fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius) you are still in the midst of a significant Saturn transit and this book can help you successfully navigate its cold and deep wa…

Adventures with Secondary Progressed Moon in Sagittarius

Image
I celebrated my Secondary Progressed Moon moving into Sagittarius (and conjoining my Natal South Node on the 7th House cusp) with an adventure holiday in Borneo. What a wild ride!



I’m a cautious Capricorn but found myself challenged by all sorts of daring activities I never thought I would have the guts to do.


Trekking uphill on narrow slippery paths through wild jungles full of angry fire ants, hungry leeches and (bonus) truly wild orangutan; wading up to my chest through rivers fully clothed; cooling off in waterfalls hidden deep in the forest; overcoming my fear of fast water by riding down rapids with nothing but a lifejacket beneath me; wading into the south china sea with nothing but the full moon to light the way, to be charmed by the dinoflagellate 'sea sparkle'; with jelly legs, shuffling over narrow bridges open to the water beneath, trying to remember that Capricorns are supposed to be sure-footed as I went. In just two short weeks, I learned a lot about myself – I…

The Descent: A Moon-Pluto Story

[Warning: contains spoilers] Watching the British horror movie The Descent recently, I was struck by just how perfect a metaphor for the Moon-Pluto dynamic this movie is. The story line goes like this: the lead character, Sarah (played by actress Shauna Macdonald), is grieving for her husband and most particularly for her young daughter. Both died violently after their car was struck by a truck on the way b…
