D.A Lascelles is a former clinical scientist turned teacher. He writes in his spare time and is the author of Gods of the Sea, a short story in the Pirates and Swashbucklers Anthology by Pulp Empire and Transitions, a paranormal romance novella released by Mundania Press.
Reports of a Blur/Oasis style rivalry between himself and novelist R.A Smith are always hotly denied as are the almost non-existent rumours that they are one and the same person. They have on a number of occasions been seen standing next to one another at Steampunk fairs which proves both theories wrong. He is also, despite claims made by his students, neither Australian, Hungarian, John Travolta nor Chucky from Child’s Play.
Transitions (Short Story/Paranormal Romance/Historical Fiction)
Transitions takes us on a journey through time. In modern day Birmingham , a group of university students become embroiled in a love story almost 2,000 years old as the ghost of Gaius Lucius, a Roman officer tries to reclaim his lost love. What can Helen, a driven and ambitious student with high hopes for the future, do to solve this ancient riddle? And why is Brandon making late night visits to her house with tokens of love?
Lurking Miscellany (YA/Science-Fiction/Paranormal)
“It’s you!” She stood up and backed away, pointing accusingly at Orchil. “You’re doing this to me! You’re using some form of… of… magic.” What else could explain it? A spell, a curse, an inexplicable phenomenon. Magic! Orchil laughed. “You really that stupid? I thought you followed the great god, Science? Sit, girl, sit and let me tell you how the trick was done. And that’s a rare thing, a Shaman explaining their magic, so you better listen well!”
