With the world occupied by war, an ancient evil stirs in the darkness. Something that is far more dangerous than the Nazi invasion.

London, 1941. The capital stands in ruins from the constant bombardment of nightly air raids. Stanley Grand, a wounded soldier from the French lines, returns home with the shadows of war hanging over him. After another night of bombing, Stanley stumbles across a hidden crypt hidden beneath St Margaret’s Church. Rescued by an unsuspecting Air Warden, Hazel Johnson, the pair find themselves thrust on a path of robbery, murder and secret societies.

When a notorious criminal is found murdered, there is more to his death than meets the eye. Stanley and Hazel’s only hope of proving their innocence is to accept the help of an ancient order of the Catholic Church. In exchange for their protection, the pair must help return an ancient artifact, stolen from the hidden crypt. Should they fail; an evil that has been imprisoned for thousands of years will once again walk the earth and bring with it a plague of darkness and evil – The Iceman.

While Stanley and Hazel seek to secure the secrets, there are others who would see The Iceman freed from his icy tomb. In a race against time, can an unlikely duo succeed or will the threat of war pale into insignificance against the evil that waits in the depths?

A chemical attack. An ex-cop. One chance to prove his family aren’t involved.

If only he hadn’t answered the midnight call.

A voice from his past drags Aaron from his sleep, a voice that tells him his sister is in intensive care under armed guard. After all, she's the only suspect in a terror attack.

Time is the only constant. We may dwell on the past, but there is nothing we can do to change it. Or is there?

 

Blackout offers a new perspective with the knowledge that there are those among us who have the ability to make leaps back in time. Such a gift comes with a price, and Blackout offers an action-packed and character-driven sci-fi adventure that rips you from your seat and thrusts you into a fantastic journey.

Michael Swann explores not only time but also his own sexuality as he explores a side of himself he never expected to experience. Action, espionage, time-travel and more in this two-part series.

Much to my disappointment a number of reviewers sought to hide their outrage at an openly gay character with negative reviews but that only fuelled my desire to expand Michael's story with a sequel.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Tobey Alexander is by far and away simply a massive kid and will now revert to the first person otherwise he, I, we, get confused!

As a mad-dad, it's my job to show my children the value and virtue in imagination. I have always crafted stories and it wasn't until I saw how they stole my children's imagination that I thought it was about time I released my imagination on the world. I write across a variety of genres, but the idea behind every story I write is ESCAPSIM and ADVENTURE.

Be that in my fantasy adventure series, Timothy Scott, or my urban thriller Gridlock, there is something for all readers. I'm an avid film-buff and honestly see all of my stories in my head as mini mind-movies as I'm writing them. For that reason I have worked towards adapting some of my books into screenplays, hoping one day not only will you read my stories but see them too.

 

My publishing journey began when I made up a monster for my youngest son at the time. We heard a strange noise and, being the good lying dad I am, I told him it was a Magdon (half human, half dog, all hunter) and scared the living daylights out of him! Bad dad! That said, I then embellished a little, as you do, and very soon I had made a whole false family history up about my great-grandad defeating the monster. Heck, I even buried two wooden swords in a graveyard and made a fake journal filled with clues that we used to uncover the swords on a rainy Sunday morning.

 

It was only when I got pulled into school by my son's teacher to be asked, "were you really digging up graves?" that I explained my story. Some hour later and the teacher told me I had to write them a series of books as she knew I was trying to make it as an author.

 

So I did! In the hope that my children might embrace their own imagination and, more than anything, I wanted to make adventure something real.

 

Needless to say that spiralled and as my children grew, the barriers I had put around my overactive imagination crumbled. Pretty soon I was happy to unleash all of my flights of fancy and so my catalogue of stories has grown over the years.

 

Alas it was when my three children were facing their darkest times with their mother having breast cancer and my youngest son (middle child) being diagnosed as being on the autism spectrum like me, that I realised they needed a new hero. Most of all they needed a way to escape some of the scariness that comes with seeing a parent undergo chemotherapy and that's where Timothy Scott was born. To say it is a passion would not be doingit justice and all three of my children, old young and middle, have immersed themselves in the world which makes it my proudest creation (after them of course in case they're reading this - you're still my favourites kids!)

 

I have no intention of stopping and invite you to buckle up and join me on the roller-coaster ride through my imaginations. From enchanting and fantastical worlds, to terrifying monsters that threaten to kill humankind, or else grizzly ex-detectives searching to uncover the truth about organised criminals and terrorists, heck even an alternative perspective on the Grim Reaper...there's something in my addled brain for everyone.

 

I look forward to seeing you in there.

"This book was a fun adventure, great for the preteen audience. It was a mix between Narnia and Lord of the Rings, in the way Timothy accesses and learns about the fantasy world and the way that he travels to Shadow Island, respectively."
Timothy Scott: Shadow Island Amazon Review

01

"This book starts off hooking the reader into wanting to know whether what Timothy Scott is experiencing is real. The book definitely peeks the reader’s curiosity as Timothy’s character grows and develops. It is a great coming of age book that hits on concepts such as being different, not fitting in a mold, and finding strength in yourself."
Timothy Scott: Shadow Island Amazon Review

02

"From cover to cover this novel held many surprises. The cast of characters was totally varied, main character a blend of many good guys fighting evil. The last part was a total number of clues suggested in earlier circumstances blended into a real shocker. If there is any doubt in your mind, let me relieve you of whether you want to take a chance."
