The Guardian Saga


The Guardian is a series of four books, centered on University lecturer, Philip Entwhistle and his Wiccan lover, Fern. An unlikely pairing, they have all the usual relationship issues that any young couple face, and then some.


Deadly secrets, mortal (and immortal) enemies and a police detective determined to nail Philip for something. Trust, commitment and secrets don’t mix. Can Philip find a way to keep his oath as the Guardian, without losing the love of his life? Will Fern accept that his ‘secret’ relationship will always come between them? And together, can they defeat Mankind’s most ancient enemy?


“The Guardian” begins with “Blood in the Sand” and continues with “Blood in the Snow”. Prepare for the ride of your life.


“Blood in the Sand” – The first in the Series




In Blood in the Sand, we follow the misadventures of Philip Entwhistle, a historian with “a good heart.” Tested and chosen, Philip becomes the recipient of an ancient secret. A secret for which people have killed, and will kill again.


What happens when academia crosses paths with the occult?


The most powerful witch in England is hell bent on becoming a god, and Philip has made the worst decision of his scholastic career. He plans to stop her. He has no idea what he is up against, and soon discovers he might lose more than just a promotion.


For Philip Entwhistle, academia has never been so cutthroat.


Blood in the Sand is the first installment in a new saga that combines love, magic and revenge, propelling Philip from his hum-drum life to the Sahara as he unearths a mystery that lay hidden for a century.
