The three books in the Decimation series (Decimation: The Girl Who Survived, Termination: The Boy Who Died, and Annihilation: Origins and Endings) are now available in a Kindle box set and also as an 800+ page paperback.
You can save money by buying the boxset rather than the corresponding individual Kindle versions or paperbacks.

The word, Decimation, is one which has changed a little in modern colloquial usage. When people talk about something being decimated, they often mean it has been largely destroyed.
However, the original meaning of the word derives from the time of the Romans. Decimation was a form of extreme military discipline in which every tenth man in a group was executed. It was used as a punishment for severe crimes such as cowardice, desertion or mutiny.
Thanks for visiting my book page.
It’s now around eight months since I launched Annihilation, the third and last book in the Decimation trilogy. So, what’s coming next?
I’m currently working on a near-future, Sci-Fi thriller. I’m excited by the underlying premise; I can’t say too much at this stage, but it’s a big idea like the one in the Decimation universe (where no woman has survived childbirth in a generation).
I’m planning this new book to be the first in a series, but I’m not yet sure how many books that will include. I’ll reveal more as I get closer to a complete first draft.
Finally, a big thank you to all who have reviewed my books. A good review can make all the hard work required to create a book feel worthwhile.
My short story, The Prisoner, was recently published in the Resolutions anthology by Bridge House Publishing.
You can find an interview with Gill James of the same company on her blog today.
The dedication to my latest book, Annihilation: Origins and Endings, reads as follows:
My silent companion during the writing of this book. You didn’t offer any suggestions, but you sat beside me throughout.
The question is, who is Theo?
Two years ago, my aunt was no longer able to look after her dog, a Maltese Terrier, due to ill health. We offered to look after him, and Theo soon became an integral member of our family.
I’m pleased to announce that in addition to Kindle and paperback versions, Decimation is now available as an audio book.
Decimation: The Girl Who Survived is set twelve years in the future and features a variety of new technologies that don’t exist in commercial form today. Take the quiz and see if you can guess how many of the listed technological developments are already in use or have just been made up for the book.
Only one answer is valid per question.
