My first novella is now available in a free Smashwords edition.
Jasper is an apprentice magician in a society of the future, where chaos magic has become the dominant religion. He does a time-jump which is supposed to be a meditation, but it goes wrong, and he finds himself in a parallel world about to embark on a mission as a heroic knight: a mission that he does not want, as he is more of a mystic than a warrior.
He encounters Emin, an advanced magician who offers to help by swapping places with him, leaving Jasper in his retreat up in space. As the adventure unfolds Jasper must use his emerging magical abilities to return to the planet, and there fight against aliens who are threatening its people and the girl he loves.

About the Author
When I was a child I always thought I would become a fiction writer because I wrote so many stories in exercise books. What in fact happened was that for a while I wrote a lot of poems and songs, and then nothing at all for twenty-four years. My consuming interest has always been the occult and religion, and in 2014 I joined A.E.O.N. a chaos magic group on Facebook. It was described as: "A Unique Art-Magic Collective made up of Highly Creative Individual Rebel Artists: Writers, Graphic Designers, Crafters, Pranksters & Performers. Art Transcends All Reason!" For the sole purpose of contributing to this group, I started to write short stories and novellas. I teamed up with a chaos muse, a non-human entity, and channelled material from her so that we each wrote some of the pieces. Then I began to self-publish the resulting books.The more I learn about the professional writing world the more I am discovering that I don’t have anything in common with them. Therefore, I have now made all my Candy Ray books free on this site. I live on the south coast of England with my small family and I work part-time. The A.E.O.N. art group has faded from prominence now and has been succeeded by newer ones, but still:- Art Transcends All Reason! My Smashwords interview has moved and is now here: https://www.smashwords.com/interview/Frond All the books have been republished with minor amendments (May 2019)
