The Mandari Chronicles: Launched 29th May 2020

The Mandari Chronicles

Lexis Carmichael has always known she was different and that she…just didn’t belong. But nothing on Earth could have prepared her for how she would unravel the real truth of not only who she is, but that of mankind.

Lexis' life on Earth takes a dramatic turn when Kemil Hakaru suddenly lands unannounced in her garden one winter’s night from another world. Having taken this fascinatingly beautiful man into her home, the two form an unbreakable cosmic bond greater than any mere mortal could ever experience. Through that love, Lexis discovers her true origins, her real powers and a new dimension to the history of man, all documented in the Mandari Chronicles. The Chronicles document the origin of mankind from the original races of Earth once known as Terra – elemes, hawsers and medians – and their intergalactic sojourn to Planet Mandar. Thousands of years later, the races are now divided across two planets, Mandar and Khron, and are at war.

It is at this juncture in time that Lexis and Kemil must, through their love, fulfil their purpose as foretold in The Chronicles to restore peace and realign the races on their trajectory to greatness. Through all the heartache, loss and shock discoveries, will they fulfil The Mandar Chronicles, restore alignment to purpose, reveal the hidden truths and will love and freedom prevail?

Pardner Money Stories Volume 2

Pardner Money Stories Volume II is a further collection of the short comedy stories which takes a light hearted look at life within an extended Jamaican family living in Manchester, northern England.

The stories capture the culture of the migrants of the fifties and sixties from the West Indies and a way of family life that is slowly dying.

This second volume of Pardner Money Stories is a follow-up to the first volume of hilarious short stories which featured Kelly and her eccentric extended Jamaican family living in the north of England.

In this edition, the reader is presented with the latest rib-splitting antics of Grandma Mala, Cousin Babsie and husband Ferdie, Lolly and Uncle Al, as they try to navigate and make sense of their world: a little piece of Jamaica in England.

Contemplation Volume Two is a further collection of carefully crafted words, reflecting life's experiences of joy and sadness, encountered as we journey to unknown destination, along the rough path of sticks and stones, hell bent on breaking bones.
