Doc Martin Fan Writing For a Charitable Cause and Your Personal Reading Pleasure
Hello and Welcome!
In October 2014, I wrote my first chapters of Battling Demons.
Though never having written anything aside from school English assignments, a wonderful British TV show became my impetus to put pen to paper.
And it turns out, I really love to write!

After writing 232 chapters and almost 700,000 words (War And Peace is 560,000 words), I got this hair-brained idea to use all the hours spent on my laptop for a cause greater than just bringing joy to my faithful fanfiction reader base.

I'd publish the story as a book series and donate the royalties to one of Martin Clunes and Philippa Braithwaite's favorite charities.
TheHorseCourse, an equine therapy facility in Dorset, England, seemed the perfect recipient for any funds generated.

Although the Battling Demons series is, at the heart of it, a love story, it also deals with the issue of child abuse and neglect.
Many of the children TheHorseCourse serves deal with the effects of this sort of experience.
