Like The Buddha’s Bone?




What if an arcane Druid ritual on the Mayday festival of Beltaine could summon ancient gods from the Celtic Otherworld of Avalon into modern day London?

Gods of Avalon Road is my debut novel (urban fantasy/ paranormal romance) from Blossom Spring Publishing (2019).

    Hi just finished Gods of Avalon Road (just in time for mayday might I add☀️) what a gripping and excellent read! Wish a sexy sun god would come out of a cauldron in my garden! I really enjoyed it!! Will there be a follow on book?

    • Awesome, glad you enjoyed it! Yes, I’ve outlined 2 more books to make it into a trilogy. Had planned for it to be a standalone, but I’ve had more positive feedback than I thought so will expand it out! 😉

    Still working my way through Gods of Avalon Road, I would not be able to put it down if it wasn’t for my manic toddler. Well worth the money xxx😁

    Really enjoyed this! I liked the first person narration because Kim has quite a sassy but equally damaged persona that is v relatable. I found myself sort of screaming at her in my head when she kept taking all the bs from carl then vince.
