“The Rise of Merlin" - D. Austin Wilson

The Rise of Merlin

An epic fantasy novel

Publication Date: Sep 20, 2016

It had been the sudden scream from the boy that had stirred Merlin from his deep sleep. The noise shattered the heavy silence that had endured in the cave for almost one and a half thousand years.
With Tom’s help Merlin emerges into the 20th Century; an alien world of denuded landscapes. ‘Where are the forests I once knew?’ ‘Who are these people with their frightening technology, their strange clothing, language and customs?’
He remembered now – the Sacred Staff being presented to him by the High Priest of the Druid’s Inner Circle. It was the ultimate privilege and losing possession of it was sacrilege. In a dream Alexinus, who’s been turned into a flying pterosaur by Niddrym, tells him the evil sorceress still lives; that she had stolen the Staff after placing the wizard under her sleeping curse.
Merlin is on a mission and with two newly acquired friends, a persistently curious female reporter and Tom, he ventures into an ancient world; a dangerous world – and that’s where their frightening adventures begin…!

If Only...! ebook by David Wilson

If Only…!

Publication Date: Jun 17, 2015

There’s nothing more uplifting to the spirit than the love of one human being toward another, more so, when that love is returned in equal measure. That’s how it was with Paul and Sally; a happy couple who, throughout their marriage, found pleasure and comfort being in each other company.
Then, because of one solitary and misleading incident, their paths diverge; forcing each to tread very different paths to the one they had been used to. One day their paths converge again, due to Paul, seeking his wife’s whereabouts. He has been confronted with an innocent explanation to the incident that provoked his distress; that had him walking away from the marriage without a word. He seeks his wife out and pleads for her forgiveness, it’s only then that the realisation of their love for each other is as strong as ever.
They recount those years they’ve been apart; almost six and a half years; poignant, turbulent years that often had them wishing: If only!
But their stories create a consequence, setting off a culmination of events that will have a deep and lasting impact on their future life together.

The Mud Pack: ...and the women who'd do anything to possess it! ebook by David Wilson

The Mud Pack: …and the women who’d do anything to possess it!

Publication Date: Jan 20, 2014

I lie in my hammock within the heavily thatched hut. The protective netting around me keeps most of the mosquitoes at bay, but it doesn’t obstruct the sound of billions of insects that exist within the surrounding rainforest. The constant drone hardly ever lets up, and at times it invades your senses to such a degree to be almost deafening. Other creatures often add to the din like the eerie sound of howler monkeys that join in the dawn chorus from their lofty habitat, and, toward evening, tree frogs enter the fray with their distinctive croaking.
But I have become used to it – music to my ears you might say! These days, when silence reigns momentarily, as in the very small hours or as a precursor to an approaching storm, I feel a little uneasy and find some relief when the jungle noise returns.

The Big Walk: A 73-Year-Old Man's Incredible 3,200km Solo Walk Around England. Book by David Wilson

The Big Walk: A 73-Year-Old Man’s Incredible 3,200km Solo Walk Around England

Publication Date: Oct 9, 2014

At one time during the walk my mind veered off at a tangent (which it often does!).
I remembered thinking that if there was such a thing as the devil, it would have been that sly little bugger who would have created religion in the first place; because when you really give it some thought, what better way to set man against man…to set nation against nation; and what better way to get good men to do evil things in the name of their God!
I enjoy a shandy at a pub near Newsham before leaving the towpath in favour of a shorter route by road that will take me into the city of Preston.
