A Series of Science Fiction Thrillers.

Could you betray everyone you care about to prevent a war?

Marcie Hugo isn’t a typical sixteen-year-old. She’s been cybernetically enhanced to have superhuman strength, speed, and judgement. 

She’s lived her entire life in the Blind Spot; a garish neon rat run of debauchery. Since her mum’s murder several years ago, her dad’s method for keeping her safe has been to imprison her in her own home. But with her sixteenth birthday looming, she’s going to start making her own life choices. She’ll finally move away to the neighbouring Scala City with the boy she loves.

But when a terrorist attack raises the temperate of the cold war between the Blind Spot and the city, her vision of her planned future begins to fade. If she’s to put her bad memories and the home she hates behind her, she has to act.

With time running out and tensions rising, Marcie finds herself as the only person who can prevent the conflict. But it comes at a cost. Does she betray everyone she cares about and sacrifice her chances with her one true love, or does she let thousands die in a preventable war?

Join Marcie as she tears through dystopian cityscapes and neon flooded alleyways in an attempt to put all the pieces into place to prevent a war that could destroy the entire city.

The Blind Spot is a science fiction thriller and the first book in the Neon Horizon series.

5 stars – “… Marcie vowed to stop a war between the two factions no matter what it took, and this is the journey we take with her in this awesome and very thrilling book.” Lana. (Goodreads reviewer).

Marcie thought preventing a war was tough. But that’s because she’s never been to Prime City.

To many, Marcie Hugo is a hero for the part she played in preventing a war between The Blind Spot and Scala City, but to The Eye and her best friend Sal, she’s a liar and a traitor.

She manipulated The Eye to get what she needed from him, which lead to the murder of a connected man. Being Wrench’s daughter, she’s untouchable, but because of her The Eye now has a price on his head. He might be safely hidden, but time’s running out. If he remains in The Blind Spot, it won’t be long before someone finds him and cuts his throat.

While preventing the war, Marcie wrongly accused Sal’s dad of colluding with factions in Scala City in an attempt raise tensions between the two sides. She’s known the family since birth, yet she still pointed the finger at them.

If nothing else, Marcie must do the right thing for those she’s wronged. For The Eye to survive, she’ll need to liberate him from his temporary prison and get him away from The Blind Spot. Although Sal might never forgive her, she can help him by getting the lung transplant he so desperately needs.

There’s only one place that’ll serve both functions, but the path to Prime City involves crossing a wasteland filled with marauding militia.

Can Marcie Hugo get The Eye from prison before an assassin claims the price on his head? Can she get away from The Blind Spot without her dad’s knowledge? Can they survive a journey across the wastelands that for so many has meant death? And if they do get there, what will they find in Prime City? What will it take to get Sal’s lung transplant? If Marcie’s learned anything up until this point, it’s that plans rarely run smoothly and people get hurt along the way.

Prime City is a fast-paced hard-hitting science fiction thriller and the second book in the Neon Horizon series.

When Marcie left the Blind Spot, she had just two things to accomplish: One, she needed to get lungs for Sal’s transplant. Secondly, she needed to set the Eye up for a new life in Prime City. Simple, right?

So when she gets offered the lungs but no guarantee for the Eye’s safety, Marcie chooses to delay her return home. To make good on her promise to the Eye, she has to remain in Prime City for several months so she can run five more bounties for Mads. It’s a small price to pay to set her friend up for life.

But each bounty reveals more about Mads and Prime City than she’d bargained for. Each bounty drags her in deeper to his web of crime and conspiracy, putting her at war with her own moral compass. And now she’s agreed to work for Mads, if she backs out, not only will she put her own life at risk, but her actions could also see the Eye killed.

Will Marcie manage to follow Mads’ orders without question? Can she witness corruption and exploitation without acting? It might only be a few months, but is a few months still too long to be one of Mads’ bounty hunters?

Bounty Hunter is the third book in the Neon Horizon series. If you like high-octane dystopian science fiction set in a cyberpunk landscape, then this book is for you.


For as long as Dragon can remember, he’s lived in a lead-lined box. It might be for his own good, but he’s under no illusion he’s still a prisoner.

Nuclear war has left the world uninhabitable. With radiation levels so high, the only way to survive is encased in lead.

Dragon’s only connection to the world comes through competitive gaming. A community linked by high-speed networks with every gamer fighting for the monthly prize. A prize coveted almost as much as breathable air.

But winning is far from easy, and maybe it’s the taking part that counts.

Will being this month’s champion fulfil Dragon’s desires, or will it leave him empty, broken, and with more questions than answers?

Marcie Hugo and Drake Soldado are unusual travel companions united by similar goals. A teenage girl and a man in his thirties. One is returning home to honour a promise, the other needs to find his daughters, which he hasn’t seen for over four years since they were taken from him and sold as slaves.

Marcie has promised her best friend and childhood sweetheart that she’ll return from Prime City with the lung transplant he so desperately needs. She plans to make good on that promise. She didn’t plan on falling in love with someone else while she was away. Their reunion might fix his breathing, but will it also break his heart?

Drake has to find his two daughters. Daughters he’d forgotten he had until recently. Daughters who have spent the last four years as slaves. To find them, he must penetrate Scala City’s hostile criminal underworld of human traffickers. If he survives and reunites with his little girls, how damaged will they be from the years they’ve spent apart? What have they endured? Will they even remember him?

Neither reunion will be easy, but first they have to reach Scala City and the Blind Spot.

Miles of wastelands stand before them.

Scores of murderous militia patrol the barren lands.

And to top it all off, neither Marcie nor Drake know the way.

Bart lives in the pressure cooker that’s the Black Hole; a neon-lit hell filled with prostitutes, pimps, and pushers. Muggings, murders, and mods are commonplace, and few earn enough credits to get by, let alone support a family.

He gives the best of himself to his dead-end job and despotic boss, yet still only earns enough credits to last five out of the seven days in a week. Each night, he returns exhausted to his dilapidated house to comfort his starving wife and daughter. If only his love could fill the chasm in their stomachs created by his failings.

But even in a place like the Black Hole, there are opportunities for those stupid or desperate enough to take them. Drug trials, loan sharks, and gangs all offer the possibility of extra credits.

With Bart’s inability to provide sending him and his family on a downward trajectory, maybe he’s both stupid and desperate enough to try something different. And someone has to win in this hellish place, so why not him?
