Short Story: Beginner’s Luck

The first installment of my Mythical Menagerie short story series is now available. If you love travel (go on, admit it, you do!) and you enjoy urban fantasy (think The Dresden Files or The Iron Druid Chronicles) then I think you’d be delighted by these stories too! Starting off in London, this series will take readers all across Europe, and beyond, in an exciting journey that should thrill armchair travellers and avid readers alike.


Ambrose Davids has had the worst luck lately.

A mistake at work cost him his career and his girlfriend. Then his favourite pair of shoes got ruined, and now there’s a dead girl floating in the lake. It had just been one of those weeks.

With his landlord breathing down his neck and his debts piling up, is it any wonder he’s desperate enough to consider taking on an impossible job, even if it turns out to be a scam?

But who is this mysterious Council? And do they seriously expect him to find and capture creatures from myth?

Ambrose’s luck is about to change, but will it be for better or for worse?


Available on Kindle Unlimited and for purchase at your Amazon retailer of choice.

If you enjoy this story, I hope you’ll consider leaving a review on Amazon and/or Goodreads, following me on Facebook and signing up to receive information about new releases. I’m incredibly excited about this series, and can’t wait to hear what you think of it!
