Poetry of Monsters and Madness




From the darkness and the shadows
From the lunacy and the void
The words flow on moonlight and mayhem, slithering tentacles along the night. Follow the siren song of myth and monstrosity, the shrieking call of creatures wild and terrifying. Wander down the mind’s mania as it leads you past reality into disturbing delusion.

Come read the Poetry of Monsters and Madness.

Eternal Myths and Past Legends

An immortal witch. A chaotic past. Can she defend the world from old adversaries, or will she be catapulted into magical mayhem?

The legends of Camelot got it wrong. Not the questing or the wizardry, but they forgot the side effect of magic. Eternity. Nimue, Merlin’s ex-everything, is just trying to get by in this modern world. Too bad the past won’t stay where it belongs. Buried.
For the first time, read both of the Camelot Immortals short stories Legendary Debts and Grail Days in one book, as the prequel to the series.
Legendary Debts: Merlin’s back and up to his old tricks. But Nimue is in his way and after revenge. It’s a witch vs. wizard showdown for the fate of a new Camelot.
Grail Days: The Grail has vanished and Nimue is pulled into a magical free-for-all to reclaim the powerful relic. Will she find it in time?

If you like strong snarky heroines, magic, and crazy adventure, then you’ll love these tales of Nimue and her friends.

An immortal witch of Camelot. A looming magical crisis. A destiny she’s willing to reject.

All Nimue wants is a peaceful life, but her past won’t leave her alone. And when her friend Iseult brings news that her old rival Morgawse has been abducted, an impending catastrophe lands on her doorstep. And worse, the wizard responsible is Nimue’s ex, Nostradamus.
Dragged into another adventure, Nimue confronts her former flame as he wages a desperate quest, only to be thrust deeper into an escalating crisis. As Nimue struggles to unravel what is happening, she discovers dark secrets that threaten the heart of magical energy. Now it’s her fate to rescue magic for every witch and wizard, including her friends. Trouble is, she wants no part of being magic’s saviour.
Will Nimue step up as a champion? Or will she let the magical world die?

Past Legends: The Camelot Immortals Book One, is a contemporary Arthurian fantasy inspired by the tales we all know and love. If you like strong snarky heroines, wizards and witches, and copious amounts of alcohol, then you’ll love the adventures of Nimue and her friends.
