“Welcome to beautiful Cape Misfortune. Come for the rugged coastline and unspoiled beaches. Stay for the quaint customs and friendly welcome.”
Don’t ask about the people who are going missing. Locals blame it on other-worldly creatures who use the fog as cover.
Disgraced police woman Deputy Cassandra Dollar is fighting to keep her job after her ex-husband has lied about her. Her shift Sergeant no longer believes a word she says and her new patrol partner is more dangerous than any of the criminals she faces.
Then “The Levitator”, an ex-detective-turned-magician, offers to help Cassandra unmask a terrible mystery. Why are people going missing? Where are they being taken to?
Could an old house on a crumbling cliff be the gateway to another world?
Are the disappearances part of a conspiracy that threatens more than Cape Misfortune – maybe the future of the entire planet?

When sixteen-year-old Jack’s home town is burned down, his mortally-wounded grandfather tells him of a device called “The Mouth” that opens doors into other worlds.
The boy escapes from the “Curfew” – a brutal realm of war machines, vengeful soldiers and burned-out Resistance caves — in a stolen Centurion tank.
He finds the device, and it takes him to a peaceful version of England where there is hope and kindness from strangers. But the enemy is not far behind – Jack faces betrayal by a friend and a determined Metropolitan Police who are pursuing him for murder.
He must do the impossible – find the world that gave his enemies their extraordinary power and travel to an England known simply as “The Maximum.” The Mouth is a dark science-fantasy adventure story about hope, resolve and finding the courage to carry on fighting even when all seems lost.
A Goodreads reviewer said, “The Mouth is a bleak, bloody and violent story that rockets along at breakneck speed. For anyone 16+ who enjoys reading dark Sci Fi / Fantasy, I thoroughly recommend The Mouth. It is an exciting, satisfying read, with a great main character in Jack and an upbeat ending!”
