The Leaf

A Novel of Alchemy

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


The Leaf is a story based on the traditional Faustian theme. It describes how the intuitive Elizabeth and the rational John interact when brought together in a seemingly promising union thats destined to end tragically. Neither appreciates that the dark hand of fate is at work in their lives, having been set in motion by Elizabeths father: a spiritually broken cleric and secret practitioner of an arcane art.

This is a work of literary fiction that attempts to be innovative in style, not only by portraying its characters conflicts in traditional form, but also in terms of events external to them and by describing these in carefully crafted language.

A respected Literary Reader has described The Leaf as A stunning piece of literature

In short, it is a highly structured work that seeks to directly engage the reader through its unorthodox use of language and its compelling and thematic storyline.
