Tales of Yorr

(A Mediaeval Monk in need of a Chiropractor)

 

The Gargoyle Chronicles

Deep in the recesses of time the thoughts of a lonely gargoyle brew, up on high, decaying in vain with the acid rain…

The Maia Calendar

 

Maia lives in a perfect world; with zero poverty, no diseases, clean energy and no crime… yet they have no past.  The Earth of 2210 is a world with no history. The great Auroras of the late 21st Century destroyed the World’s records, digitized only a decade before. The struggles of Earth’s Ancients have been lost; buried deep within the subconscious of those who survived.  The images of dystopian worlds once fired the imaginations of humankind and filled them with dread and wonder. The peoples of Maia’s time have no such fear, but they don’t know the truth of their existence and how intricately it ties them to their forgotten history. Maia has a very rare gift. She can recreate moments from the distant past.  Her mother's murder triggered her gift. Discovering the truth could mean her death.

What if Richard III was not a hunchback…  What if one of his bastard sons was…  This is the tale of Yorrick, bastard son of Richard III, hunchback extraordinaire.  Scholar, poet, lover, husband, adventurer and warrior.  A dab hand at Latin, he has quite a way with words, usually in  in verse across a tawdry bar.

 

Not everyone agrees who wrote William’s work, perhaps he was inspired by a character such as this.  Alas, for poor Yorrick, we may never really know.

Book I of the Renaissance Series

The vellum of the page creaks open; the volume traces millennia, before settling,  around 1250 AD. The pages tell of history and mystery and many things, but mostly they tell us about Félix, a gargoyle perched firmly atop Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. Created from the imagination of one mind, while shaping a block of pure cliquart limestone; master mason Guiiame gives the world Félix, Notre Dame Cathedral's final gargoyle. Félix is in no way politically correct, yet he has a habit of making politicians more correct. He also takes them to task... and it is a long way down from the western bell tower of Our Lady of Notre Dame.  Follow his life from creation to oblivion, through plagues and revolutions, wars and revisionism.

Birth of Venus

Ebook & Paperback now released on Amazon

A flower does not choose its colour; its beauty is the desire of others.

In 1486, Sandro Botticelli painted his The Birth of Venus. The face of his Venus was famously inspired by Simonetta Vespucci, as were many of the other women in his paintings. Upon his death Botticelli was buried at the feet of Simonetta, his paintings forgotten for 300 years.

Victorian tourists rediscovered Botticelli in the mid 1800's on their Grand Tours of The Continent. Botticelli's legend was reborn, as was his love for Simonetta Vespucci, the great Renaissance beauty, fêted by all Florence and vied for by two Medici brothers during her short life.

A Picture of Lily

 

 

We all long for an interesting family history with skeletons.  Russell is no different.  He has no direction in life until he discovers his Great Great Uncle didn’t die at Gallipoli.  Private John Coleman, aged 45, died somewhere near Villers-Bretonneux in France.  To honour him and to find some purpose in life Russell flies to France to spend ANZAC Day at the Dawn Service, held near Villers-Bretonneux.  This is Russell’s first overseas trip, he is 40 years old, he only speaks English and he is all alone.  He finds his Uncle’s grave easily thanks to his fastidious computer skills, but there is something wrong with the inscription on the headstone… apparently John Coleman had a daughter, Lily… and her direct descendant lives in Villers-Bretonneux.
