Next publication was the long awaited "A TOUCH of EVIL" in 2011, published by Nitewriter Media. Nine short stories and novellas, all exploring answers to the eternal question 'What if ...?' The long road to developing a television show based on these stories and others has been undertaken.

That moment when you realise after three months that the big bad in your story isn't the river monster who is gobbling people up left and right, but rather one of the "good guys" who may or may not be feeding it.

This one is a bit harder than the last. Harder in “more intense”. While the first grabbed me, a lot because of current events unfolding around me at the time causing me to question things I thought I knew, this one has some truly chilling passages. A ...more

Better than the Aftermath series, but a little bit simplistic, but it fleshed out a very one dimensional character and gave them a history and a purpose. A good little book I enjoyed.
