about me

Fire Wizard, book 1 of The Nirikarr Shift, and book 2, Masters of the Wind are now available on Amazon for Kindle Books.The complete story will be told in a series of 4 books

I have now finished turning the first two books together into a TV series called The Nirikarr Shift.

I started to write after I retired and my science fiction/fantasy adventure series is written with young adults in mind, but not exclusively so.

I am now 69, live in Prudhoe, in the Tyne valley, Northumberland, where I am involved in Am Drams as actor and director.

Demons from the Earth. Book 3 ....

Sylvia Lumley

Anna and Michael are stranded in the desert without any water. Pell isn't far behind. Will he find them in time?

Saved from 'termination' by the aliens known as the Nirikarr, Anna and Michael agree to keep their existence secret and, with three days leave, go to Earth for Christmas. If they are not back in three days, their lives could be forfeit.

Then Nelli, their Nirikarr friend, shows up to warn them of impending danger. But it's too late, all three are captured and wake up in a desert: sand and camels and people in blue robes. How will they survive? It's only dawn, the heat is oppressive, and they haven't even got any water.

But this isn't Earth, it is Anna's world where the Nirikarr also live. But Nelli tells them her home is beyond the equator across an uncrossable desert. To attempt it is to risk agonising death from ultraviolet radiation. And they don't know that a cut-throat, intent on killing them, is close behind disguised as a camel driver. He follows them into the burning heart of the desert.

But what is happening in Siberia? Something crashed at Tunguska in 1808. Whatever it was they are ready now to pour out of their lair and claim the Earth for themselves.


Masters of the Wind: Book II ....

Sylvia Lumley

Anna and Michael plan to marry. The problem is they come from different planets and ruthless people are out to get them.

Anna and Michael escape from the Fire Wizard in Chicago and use his silver sphere, to go to Anna's world of small farming communities where they plan to marry?

But when they try it again, they are diverted to a place with a ferocious wind. The device is confiscated by strange beings and they end up alone on their own home worlds. Separated, with no way of contacting the other, they each vow to find a way back.

After finding a picture of the beings in a book, Anna and her friends, embark on a perilous journey to a monastery with an famous ancient library to ask the monks for help. But someone will stop at nothing to prevent her from discovering the truth.

Michael learns of a second device and tracks down the one ruthless man who may know where it is, the captain from Anna’s world. But Michael finds himself in mortal danger as he follows this man across our world.

But who are these Masters of the Wind with so much power? And what do they want? Both Anna and Michael find tantalizing clues and suspect there are some people on both worlds who know the answers.

Welcome to the community, Abby. I wish you luck with your writing. You write really well, the dialogue runs along and sounds authentic and the story draws you in. However, you have made the classic mistake (we all do it). You have given us all that info up front and we don't need it. You need it s... view book

This is great fun to read but I do wish there were more, shorter, paragraphs. It outfaces me somewhat, like I've too much on my plate and it puts me off. I would prefer smaller helpings and have to go back for more. Even so, it's worth the bother. view book

Love this. It promises to be as good as the first in this series. For my taste it has just a few too many adjectives, only at the very beginning. It's as though you are trying too hard. (Aren't we all?) I would lose the ones I've bracketed. - her ruby red (painted) lips - puckered (half) smile ... view book

I was enjoying the story very much but got fed up with the typos. I have pages of errors, most of them so obvious that it's clear you haven't bothered. I'm sure you are going to edit this sometime in the next century and I'll wait until you have. In the meantime I will back and rate this because I ... view book

I'm really enjoying this. It rattles along and keeps you interested. I like the two cops and their interplay and their dialogue comes over as authentic. I'm trying to decide if I like the constant p.o.v shifts or not. It doesn't interfere with the flow. I did find a sentence I couldn't quite ma... view book
