Time stops for no man, but it paused for one unusual woman.

She thought she was invincible. She was wrong.

Six hundred year old Julieanna Scott does not know what she is, or how she lost her humanity, but she never forgets and rarely forgives. When villains murder one of her companions, she sets out to eradicate the threat, but was Geoffrey’s death her fault or the widows?

Out of Step

A lot happens in six hundred years, but nothing prepared Anna for this.

Doctor Anna Scott only wanted modest comforts in life, but fate doesn’t give a figs-ear for personal preferences. One random chance left Anna with six centuries of questions, a large fortune, and a tool that controls all the particles in the Universe. You’d have thought such Godly power would come with a few instructions. You’d be wrong.

Ghost in the Clockwork

One is sad, two is nothing but trouble.

Cynthia’s husband is missing and the constables are no help.

She desperately needs to retrace his last steps on the Crystal Palace Safari Tour before time runs out. But her path crosses that of a belligerent young woman bent on solving her own mystery and everything unravels for both of them.

Ghost in the Clockwork is a short steampunk adventure. Download your free copy today.


I write as Chair of the Federation of Writers (Scotland) to say how impressed we were with the service provided by Drumcross in preparing a cover for our 2 latest publications. Cheryl listened very carefully to our suggestions and came up with several examples, all of which were excellent. It was hard to choose but once we made our choice nothing was too much trouble to get the cover design exactly right. Thank you so much for your attention to detail and extremely prompt service.


I have just finished reading “Out of Time” and thoroughly enjoyed it. Intriguing story with plenty of action. Vlad is my favourite character!
