Launch Day – Outsiders

I have great pleasure in announcing the launch of my latest novel, Outsiders. It is available to pre-order on Kindle now and will reach your devices on 6th June. The paperback can be ordered for immediate delivery. Simply click Amazon UK.

DIY private investigation is not for the fainthearted. What could the inhabitants of a rural Essex village possibly know about hunting down and defeating a violent drugs gang?
Where do you start? Why would you even contemplate starting?
Unfortunately, for Julian Ashton and his tramp friend Wordsworth, they have no choice. Innocently embarking on a search for the missing teenage son of a friend, they become unwittingly drawn into a situation, which threatens their lives and more importantly, the lives of those close to them.
Suddenly, in too deep, there is no option to turn back.

For those who want to catch up on the story so far, the first book, From the Edge of an English Summer is available for just 99p on Kindle or if you prefer you can opt for the paperback. Edge of an English Summer

“The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.” – Friedrich Nietzsche

Jellyfish and Buffy the Writer





Well my poems are up on Jellyfish Whispers and the lovely Buffy the Writer has written a marvellous review of them.

She loves comments and interaction with her followers and I would strongly recommend visiting her site for the fantastic images she produces as much as for her great writing. One visit and I’m sure you’ll be hooked into following her blog.
