Within the invisible pentacle
The stories Within the Invisible Pentacle may, at first glance, seem a rather eclectic collection, but there are several underlying unifying principles employed in their careful selection.
The titles all have a feminine association as does each story's individual focus, whether direct or implicit.
These stories explore the depths of human character, the quintessence disposition of living and of life itself. Questions we shy from, the ones we are afraid to ask ourselves are unearthed, revealed and brought screaming into the daylight of recognition.
The prevailing factor is, they are written with consideration for our fragile human self, the fears, the dreams and wishes, the uncertainties and self-doubts we all carry inside ourselves, the human element of love, of life and of survival.
This is a collection of poignant, emotive, yet entertaining stories everyone should read, at least once.
A collection of Dark short stories and Darker poetry
CQ Magazine said, "Dark Words is the literary equivalent of listening to Leonard Cohen; wonderfully soothing for the soul."
“Dark days come to us all at some time in our lives.
Heartbreak, grief, fear, loss, pain and anxiety collide and conspire, individually and collectively to bring us down.
We feel the battles rage within ourselves; they fight and scream in a tortured anguish of emotional turmoil.
Solace is often found alone, in dimly lit rooms, with mellow songs playing over and again.
Reading DARK WORDS, sharing the pain within these tales help us dry our own tears, to drive away the clouds of uncertainty and crush the demons which haunt our souls.
To accept and acknowledge the blackest days of our lives often reveals the pathway from the shadow maze of obscure reflection, into the sunlight of possible future.
Dark days come to us all, at some time in our lives. They are not the place for us to dwell for too long.
They are not our home.”

The Abduction of Rupert DeVille
The Abduction of Rupert DeVille is a thrilling 'very British' dark comedy, it is a suspense story, 'finding oneself story, a tale of realisation and love, all in one. Written with a touch of wit and humour which will keep you turning page after page.
Paul White has the rare ability to bring characters to life, to make them real people, with feelings, worries, inner doubts & fears; just like you and I.
Paul has masterly crafted The Abduction of Rupert DeVille into a work that leads the reader astray, down the dark alleyways of the past, before bringing them back into the glaring light of the present.
Paul manages to do all this while weaving a mixture of laugh-out-loud humour and offbeat craziness into the story.
