Yet by night, in a haze of scotch-fuelled insanity, he works tirelessly on an array of stories both short and long. Joe possesses a fierce love of a smooth finish. Under no circumstances should you ask him just what that means.

It often seems I’ve skipped a rung

Some days, for what it’s worth.

I’ve missed a step – I’ve slipped and swung

To some peculiar Earth.


On days like these, those moments tossed

Emerge with careless haste -

To leave me hopeless, hurt and lost,

With bitter truths to taste.


I’m sure it seems absurd to hear

I’d grieve to let him go -

I’d close my eyes and shed a tear

For guys I didn’t know -


But all the s...

“Commercial fiction writing – where my bread is buttered – is fairly straightforward. The writing is simply efficiency and story. The more you have of one the less you need of the other.”

The Rig by Joe Ducie
"This was a action packed adventure story. I loved the characters, especially Tristan. My imagination went wild with the description of the underwater level of the prison. Eerie, cold, magical.......fantastic.

“Perfect endings... they don't exist, 'Phie. Only in stories, where nothing ever really changes. Here, right now, isn't a story. There is no happy ending, because it's not the end. Do you understand?”
Joe Ducie, Distant Star

“Becoming a writer is a polite way of saying you've chosen alcoholism as a career.”
Joe Ducie

“I could do anything—be anything.
I could be a blackberry farmer.
I could worry about phone bills and nipping out to the corner shop for milk and bread of a morning.
Little Declan Jr. could learn to walk and talk with his real father, alive and well, and I could teach him how to wear a waistcoat with just the right amount of tragic charm, take him to school in a few years, maybe makehim a little sister to look out for, someone to keep him on his toes. He could play a sport—tennis, maybe, or football. I’d attend parent-teacher meetings and have after-work drinks with the neighbors, talking about how well so-and-so is doing, and why yes, Declan Jr. is learning to play the piano. Top of his class, you know—he has his mother’s grace…
I could see all of that, as clear in my mind as sunlight on fresh snow, and so much more.
Just living day to day. One morning we could have picnics, my family and I, next to blue glacial lakes. One afternoon my son would be old enough to meet a girl, get in a fight, need to shave. One evening his sister will need help with her homework, and he’ll complain, but he’ll help.
And then one day the Elder Gods would descend from a blood-red sky in chariots lashed together from bone and flame and take away all my blackberries.”
Joe Ducie, Knight Fall
