The Black Hind's Wake.
The Black Hind's Wake series begins with the duology comprising of The Skin and The Pact.
The Skin was published in October 2021 and The Pact will be released in late summer or early Autumn 2022.
I have plans and ideas for further books within this series. With the aim for future adventures being that each book will be more self-contained, but still following the crews of Barge and Black Hind as they explore the folklore of other regions.
The links on this page will help in both navigating the world, and in leading you to some of the source material that I have used in this series of books. Some of it is eclectic and gleaned from single tales in localised regions, while some of the folklore permeates entire cultures.

“You cannot fix this world alone, Selkie.”
“I know that. But, when we die all that is left are shadows of our lives preserved in the memories of those who remain. I plan on leaving an exceptionally long shadow, filled with ripples of moonlight for those I helped, and darker than the worst of nightmares for those who wronged us.”
