about me

Here is my work. I hope you enjoy it.

Both The Ghost Shirt and The Tiger Farm have had their HC reviews. Reviews which encourage me to keep on with this project.

The Ghost Shirt version here is the original one. A much revised edition, based on HC feedback, is being worked on before it will start the rounds looking for an agent.

Thanks to everyone who has supported my work over the past couple of years.

Meet his lost sister…rob a museum...become a Ghost Shirt Warrior …enter the Wakan spirit realms…fight cannibal forces…find his mother...Angus has a headache!


Do you have what it takes to become a Ghost Shirt Warrior? Angus, it seems, has little choice. Surviving a toffee spitting stepmother, and inadvertently befriending the school bully, these become the least of his worries. The arrival of his sister transforms his life! The tribes of the Sioux Nation have already warned her of the perils lying ahead. The sacred spirit realms are under attack, but, to defend them she needs a Ghost Shirt to transform her brother into the warrior he never dreamt he could be.
A strong heroine, ready to fight for what she believes in, and a reluctant hero, the Ghost Shirt Warriors gather together a group of unlikely individuals to form the legendary ‘Warriors of the Rainbow’, ready to fight back and make a stand against a band of ghoulish forces.
Based on Native American folklore with a strong twist of Scottish legend, all mixed up in a modern world on the brink of ecological disaster, this is a fast paced fantasy adventure with a good dose of humor. So come on... follow the Ghost Shirt Warriors!

D. J. Milne

Angus and Little Wing are back. The Tiger Farm is open for business; the warriors' business is to close it down.


Back from their first adventure in the Wakan Realms, Angus and his twin sister, Little Wing, have no time to rest. There is a storm coming and they must send it around the world. Eldrich S Bean and his cannibal clan are gaining strength and the warriors have been branded as outlaws. But the Warriors of the Rainbow's ranks are growing and with the addition of Shining Crow and Luan Hu, the Tiger Farm is next in their sights. Can the Brunswick bully, Tug, and his uncle Slugger’s underground network of Skullduggers make the difference?

Very happy with my review. I put the first few chapters of this sequel on the site to get feedback on how to start a second book. The reviewer's comments have been spot on, helping me identify issues that require work. The only gripe is with the reviewer's view on the connection between tig... view book

For those interested here is the second HC review I received, after being asked to resubmit. The Ghost Shirt The Ghost Shirt is a fantastical children’s story, most appropriately suited for an audience of 11 years plus. It is fun, exciting, and original, however, we feel there are a number of is... view book

After a second read it, seems that you have given your work a good polish. I still like the blend of real life and fantasy and the characters feel more rounded this time around. Good luck with this and it it is certainly heading in the right direction. all the best David view book

Hi Sorry for the delay in commenting but I took a short break from the site. A nice first chapter setting the scene with Wendy and Max. The interaction between the two is cute and well written, as is the dialogue between Wendy and Jessie. You have a lovely gentle way with words and your sc... view book

This is a facinating take on the old Jack the Ripper tale. Futuristic reconstructions of criminal brains and their pathologies is a neat idea a bit like Minority Report but in reverse. The opening scene is a nice vignette of the boys early life and his passion for blades and disection. Then we mo... view book
