What do I write?

The Hal Spacejock Series (Teen/Adult)

New Release!


SIERRA BRAVO is set in the Hal Spacejock universe, with events occuring before the start of Hal Spacejock: No Free Lunch. Reading the Hal Spacejock series is not necessary in order to enjoy the Harriet Walsh novels.

Sierra Bravo - a Harriet Walsh novel

Trainee Harriet Walsh tackles her third major case.

Dismolle is supposed to be a peaceful retirement planet. So what's with all the gunfire?

A criminal gang has moved into Chirless, planet Dismolle's second major city. Elderly residents are fed up with all the loud music, noisy cars and late night parties, not to mention the hold-ups, muggings and the occasional gunfight.
There's no Peace Force in Chirless, so they call on Harriet Walsh of the Dismolle City branch for help. That puts Harriet right in the firing line, and now she's supposed to round up an entire gang with only her training pistol and a few old allies as backup.
And her allies aren't just old, they're positively ancient!

FAQ (Updated Mar 2018)

Sounds cool, when will Sierra Bravo be released?
After Alpha Minor!

Can't you just write more Hal Spacejock?
I've only just finished Hal Spacejock 8: Double Trouble, and I'd like to try something else for a bit.

Will Hal Spacejock and Clunk appear in this novel?
Events take place two years before Harriet meets Hal Spacejock for the first time, so no. What you can expect is loads of nods and winks to Hal Spacejock fans and the other books in the series.
