Starting my blog

Starting my blog

I have finally decided to start a blog!

I have wondered if I should for a while, and I have now taken the plunge. My name is Stephen J Willis and I am an author of short stories, novellas and novels covering a range of genres. 

I sat and thought and pondered, what are the interests, areas of expertise and curiosities that fill my books and suddenly it came to me! I love researching the unusual, the intriguing and the out of this world. My books are filled with what are now known as Easter eggs, they probably get missed by most people but I put them in as whether or not they are spotted I have fun in the research, discovery and placing of them! 

I therefore, came to the logical conclusion that my blog should take you on my journey of curiosity and research to find out the unusual and interesting phenomena that goes on around us. I don’t claim it all to be true, as my musings take us through the biblical, the mythological, the historical and the fantastical, wondering really what is true and what is not is all part of the fun though. 

You can keep an eye out in the following blogs for such things as: deep meaningful quotes from the various famous philosophers and the Bible, hidden alien symbols with Egyptian tombs and chambers, hybrid-animals with genetically modified DNA, dark underground places mentioned within sacred mythological texts and much more!

For now the blog will be monthly, and I invite you to join me on this research journey. My hope is that it may make you look at the world that bit differently, maybe believe a little more in the unusual and out of this world and of course help you to find those Easter eggs in my books! You are also welcome to share with me anything strange but true that you come across – I am also curious to hear it!

You can subscribe to my mailing list here, to receive the monthly blog and newsletter.

You can also keep in touch through Facebook, Goodreads and Twitter.

January Newsletter

January Newsletter

First off, I would like to say hello and thank you for subscribing to my mailing list!

With it being the first month of the year and my first ever newsletter I thought I would give you an overall round-up of where everything is at with my writing. I know some of you are here as you know me personally, and others for the love of my books and I thank you both!

I am a rather eclectic writer, my genres currently covering thriller, spirituality, erotica, ghost stories and children’s fantasy and adventure. You can read all about them in further depth on my website:

A Figure In The Mist, is available in print, e-book and audio. When you subscribe to my mailing list you get a totally free copy of both the e-book and the audio, so if you haven’t yet received yours, just reply to this email and let us know.

My novellas:

An Erotic Short True Story 

From just one innocent glance at a desirable young man, a beautiful woman is driven beyond her sensibilities to where want and desire know no bounds.

With youth comes innocence, where there is sanity one can surely find insanity.

What started out as an innocent night of passion, takes an unexpected turn into a dark and disturbing experience. Little did Joey know, that something so alluring and forbidden could be so arousing. There is more to Katherine than meets the eye, where a night to remember became a night to forget…

One Winter’s Day in June is available in print and e-book from Amazon.

An incredible short story based on a real-life event. 

Enslaved by a past life memory and beaten into submission by his own mind, young Oliver is becoming further and further disconnected from the world about him, as an invisible force takes control of his subconscious.

Unable to reach deep into his psyche, Oliver is prey to the psychological trauma of a disturbing past life. A force which dictates both thoughts and feelings he cannot escape. Yet Oliver reacts out of character to an unknown male visitor, to whom his distraught mother, now at her wits end, responds to with both fear and dislike.

Can this unexpected stranger liberate the child from his own behavioral constraints?

My thriller:

What’s The Time Mr Wolfdog? is available in print and e-book from Amazon.
You can pick up a copy by clicking here.

Before the lone wolf’s cry, Tim Connery had been resigned to the fact of a cold Christmas alone. Encompassed by snowy landscapes, the views from his cottage toward the outbound vistas were but another reminder of his desolation.

Before long, however, Tim suddenly finds himself surrounded by a battalion of desperate and starving dogs that have recently broken free from the nearest pound for illegal and unstable animals. Since being liberated from restraint and subservient only to a vicious pack leader, they will do anything and eat anything to survive — and Tim is no exception to the menu.

Here, the line between man and beast becomes lost in the overwhelming will to endure and overcome, wherein only the victor will survive to tell the tale.

My Teen Adventure Series:

The Christopher Daring series. This is suitable for all ages and can be enjoyed by adults and children alike.

Some of you may be familiar with the two short stories I have written featuring Christopher Daring. The big news is that these original two are being amalgamated into one full-length novel, the second draft has actually just been wrapped up. The second full-length novel of the series is also in its second draft, and we plan on having a big launch for the series with both books in the early part of this year! We will certainly keep you posted on this.

I have just decided on a monthly blog, and if you missed the email about it, you can read all about that here.
