Overview

The Scorpian Visitant is a mysterious fantasy of dark magic, medieval battles and above all young love...

On a wet November Saturday afternoon, teenaged fire starter Robbie Higgins and his snooty cousin Louise Carlton visit Maldervale market. Robbie steals a magical glass from a junk stall - a prism with the images of Scorpio and Sagittarius in its triangular ends - right under the gaze of the normally goody-goody Louise.

Next day the owner of the glass, mysterious rag and bone man Morgan Digbone, tracks down Robbie and gives him no choice but to embark on a journey with Louise to find another prism, the Death Stone of Izar.

By moonlight on the stolen prism, Robbie and Louise travel to a strange medieval land. In the town of Oakwood, Robbie starts a barn fire as a diversion to steal clothes and money. The teenagers take lodgings in the town and begin an unlikely love affair. But the enigmatic Jade Finn knows who burned down her mother's barn and, since she has taken a fancy to Robbie, uses blackmail to come between him and Louise.

When Jade and Robbie are kidnapped by the dictatorial regime of Morgan's daughter, Gloria, Louise sets out to rescue her lost love. She is aided by rebels opposed to the regime and enlists in their bitter struggle with Gloria. Louise proves to be a feisty warrior, and as events unfold discovers not only who Robbie is but who she is too...

Meet the Author

I write thrillers and mysteries, with a little bit of romance, of course.

The Scorpian Visitant is an epic fantasy / mystery novel in which sixties teenagers Robbie Higgins and Louise Carlton travel to medieval Oakwood to find the Death Stone of Izar. On their fantastic Odyssey they find love and the reality of their mysterious origins.

The Brent Street Haunting is my second novel and was published in October 2013. It is a paranormal story of revenge and murder. Mr. Coates a self-styled African witchdoctor is hell bent on getting even with those he sees responsible for his death, whilst Evangeline Weekes takes the law into her own hands to serve brutal justice on corrupt and predatory members of the establishment. Through one disadvantaged boy Coates and Evangeline are inextricably connected.

My third novel is set in the fictional Deep South city of Duisburg. It is a white knuckle ride of a thriller which finds the evil Mr. Coates in league with a sadistic killer of young women to bring his plans to fruition. Amy Simms is a junior reporter on The Duisburg Star and is obsessed with hunky businessman Jake Webster. Only trouble is Jake is married to her best friend. Amy and Jake ride a rollercoaster of sex, blackmail and murder to stand together against the monstrous Coates. The draft of Duisburg Star was completed early July 2013. I have put it away and expect to publish it in January 2014.

My fourth novel "Amanda" is drafted at 105k words. It a dark thriller about a female sex-killer who is relentlessly manipulated to do her half sister's dirty work. Expect this to be published in the Spring 2014. I am currently working on a sequel to Amanda.

I also write short stories and have published several mysteries including Switch, Vacant Possession, You’ll Never Walk Alone, Double, and the Lucy Harlow crime stories featuring Oxygen Restriction, TV Torment, Opera Flowers and Northern Star.

Please feel free to contact me on Twitter or Facebook. I have also have a blog, see the hyperlink.

Regards and best wishes

Saul
