(That 'date of death' category threw me. What if you don't know yet?)

I am a writer, editor and publisher. I have written ten books, the most acclaimed of which are 'The Dance of the Pheasodile', 'Missio' and 'Girl on a Bar Stool'. The least acclaimed is 'Fishing, for Christians' (I still like it), and then there is one in-between 'The Blue Food Revolution' which is me in flat out magical realist mode and which is met with either absolute love or absolute suck-on-the-end-of-this-barrel hatred.

I have allowed my quill to blunt and my inkwell to dry while I run Night Reading (a community for independent authors with 400+ members) and Night Publishing (the associated publishing house with 50+ signed authors).

Having lived through my first US presidential election, I have to give it to the USA, you really have some wild and wacky politicians, and some positively demented media observers. Politics in Britain are mostly boring but American politics are as ri ...more

When I first read 'Mrs Jones', I went, 'Wow, this is a real roller-coaster!'. A sexy vulnerable girl, a New York cop, a plot that twists by the page.

As a Brit, I didn't notice it, but in its original version, it was distinctly more British than Ameri

The Division of the Damned by Richard Rhys Jones

Still on vampires, or vampyres if you prefer, but this book has an intriguing premise - what if the German army had recruited a night-fighting force, a division of vampires, in fact?

I am not much for WII adventure yarns, or for any war yarns for that

This is my favoerite of Jess Degarmo's books. It rocks off the page and the characterization of Nexess is suitably paradoxical - a contract killing vampire who is nevertheless abused by her handler.

“The uniformed man led him along a short corridor and turned right at an electronic display proclaiming “The new collection from Kelloggs” and portraying several variations of luminous crotchless panties.

Grandfather frowned. “Can you eat those?” he asked the man, pointing at the display.

The man grinned. “If you buy them, Sir, I am sure that you can do anything you want with them. Eat the panties, devour the contents …. This way, Sir.”
