About this author

Creative Director at Kristell Ink Publishing.
Detective Constable in the UK police.

My mother is killing herself, and there’s nothing that anyone can do about it.

This isn’t everything, this isn’t even 10%, but I’ll set the scene for you. I know people’s opinions and views become distorted, and people twist things over time, but I’m reassured by others that this is not the case here.

In 2001 my mum started drinking. At least I think it was 2001, my memories from my childhood are...

I'm lucky enough to have read this prior to publication. Allan does a great job of balancing YA and NA reader wants with story and characterisation.

There's adventure, love, loss, revelation and more.

" Fantasy fans: you need to read this book. It's as vivid and as glorious George.R.R Martin and Tolkien. Ibea is a rich and vibrant world, grabbing the reader by the face and refusing to let go.

E.L. James
“Does this mean you’re going to make love to me tonight, Christian?” Holy shit. Did I just say that? His mouth drops open slightly, but he recovers quickly.
“No, Anastasia it doesn’t. Firstly, I don’t make love. I fuck… hard. Secondly, there’s a lot more paperwork to do, and thirdly, you don’t yet know what you’re in for. You could still run for the hills. Come, I want to show you my playroom.”
My mouth drops open. Fuck hard! Holy shit, that sounds so… hot. But why are we looking at a playroom? I am mystified.
“You want to play on your Xbox?” I ask. He laughs, loudly.
“No, Anastasia, no Xbox, no Playstation. Come.”… Producing a key from his pocket, he unlocks yet another door and takes a deep breath.
“You can leave anytime. The helicopter is on stand-by to take you whenever you want to go, you can stay the night and go home in the morning. It’s fine whatever you decide.”
“Just open the damn door, Christian.”
He opens the door and stands back to let me in. I gaze at him once more. I so want to know what’s in here. Taking a deep breath I walk in.
And it feels like I’ve time-traveled back to the sixteenth century and the Spanish Inquisition.
Holy fuck.
E.L. James, Fifty Shades of Grey

William Shakespeare
“Two households, both alike in dignity
In fair Verona, where we lay our scene
From ancient grudge break to new mutiny
Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean.
From forth the fatal loins of these two foes
A pair of star-cross'd lovers take their life
Whose misadventured piteous overthrows
Do with their death bury their parents' strife.”
William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet
