We’re here for a good time, aren’t we?

My stories are stacked with humour and heart, like you’re catching up with friends – the most bonkers yet lovable kind. Scarcely believable and more chaotic than they have any right to be, but always great fun.

If you’re looking for high-stakes thrillers or high-brow literature, you’ve come to the wrong place… I mean, I love a bit of drama and a choice turn of phrase, but around here we’re after something a bit more cosy and relaxed.

So, if you prefer stories that don’t take themselves too seriously…

Quick, light, and fun reads

The Rise and Shine series

Arthur is a highly strung closet case who may have just run into a reason to come out, and Gabriel has escaped the confines of his hometown only to find himself drawn right back into someone else’s orbit.

With our boys surrounded by a cast of chaotic characters and thrown into the most unlikely situations, this gay romcom novella series is loaded with banter, dashes of comic tragedy, and more food and booze than any story ought to have. Preview the first chapters for free, or grab your copies now.

Murder on Milverton Square (A Milverton Mystery) by G B Ralph. Cover image and blurb.

Addison Harper is abruptly summoned to Milverton at the behest of an abrasive lawyer. He plans to be in and out, back to the city lickety-split. Instead, he finds himself charmed by the small town with its delightful and eccentric residents, not to mention the rather easy-on-the-eye Sergeant Jake Murphy.

Despite the rocky start, Addison admits he’s had a pleasant day out. That is, until returning to find the prickly old lawyer on the floor, and very much dead. Worse, it looks like murder, and Addison’s fingerprints are all over the crime scene.

Murder on Milverton Square is the first in a wonderful new cosy mystery series set in an enchanting small town nestled amongst stunning New Zealand scenery. The Milverton Mysteries features a chaotic cast of local busybodies, delicious baked treats, a demanding and disdainful ginger cat, a very slow-burn romance with a rather appealing policeman, and of course, murder…

    Until recently, I had never used TikTok except to view the occasional video shared with me.

    It was so nice to celebrate my book launch in person with wonderful friends.
