I'd like to take you on a tour of the darker, wilder back streets of my home town Glasgow in my psychological thriller Glasgow, Like A Stranger - http://www.amazon.co.uk/Glasgow-Like-A-Stranger-ebook/dp/B004ZH3EGQ/ref=sr_1_9?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1335294381&sr=1-9
It might be best thought of as a contemporary update of that Scottish gothic tradition which includes Jekyll & Hyde and Confessions Of a Justified Sinner... a nightmarish, almost surreal narrative in which the borders between the inner and outer life of its 'hero' become terrifyingly blurred - he's a man lost in a hall of mirrors large as the city itself.
Crimes Against Magic is an Urban Fantasy set in modern day London with flashbacks to early fifteenth century France. It’s the first in a series of books called the Hellequin Chronicles, which shows the life of sorcerer Nathan (Nate) Garrett.
A few days ago I have released my new book "Smart Home" which is an overview of the latest "Home Automation Technologies" available today. I'll answer questions or any feedback the readers might want to give me here.
'Deep inside the grotto of my childhood innocence was a rational adult preparing to murder the sentry of youth'.
The Moss Wall is a story of a ten years old boy told by his adult self. The boy is victimised at school by the headmaster and most of his fellow pupils. He endures beatings, humiliation and taunts that teaches him hatred and revenge. When the local School Inspector threatens his mother, he is pushed to the edge and plans a calculated attack. What emerges from this is a story of love and hate, of mythical spirits and shadows of people who have sufferings far greater than his own. Enter the world of a ten years old boy in 1980 Northern Ireland and observe the innocence of logic and the subconscious reflection of a country bleeding to death.
At some point, when KDP sort themselves out and fix the publishing glitch, my book, Shadow of the Wraith, will be available on KDP Select. For now though, it is still up there for sale.
It sounds like a simple assignment: track down the mysterious Star Wraith and put an end to its rampage.
But when Travis Archer and his team of inept soldiers find themselves the most wanted people in the galaxy – hounded by assassins, terrorists and their own military – they realise the Wraith is just a symptom of a much larger problem...
Finding war raging between one army intent on destroying an entire species, and another that will destroy the galaxy, Travis must put aside his fears and his past to uncover the truth behind it all. To become the hero he's always imagined.

The title is Oiorpata. It's actually two stories that intertwine into one book. The story of 57-J, a girl who is taken from her parents by the KGB and raised as one of the Oiorpata, women who are weapons for the State, and the story of Ben Gordon, CIA Station Chief in Moscow. The plot is sweeping, based on real events, and can be considered a warning of what could still happen today.
It's free right now. If you like action thrillers involving espionage, I think you might like Oiorpata.
What if civilization came to an abrupt end... What if you were left on your own to survive... If everything had been taken from you would you risk your life to get it back or would you just attempt to hide in the shadows hoping the trouble would all go away? Heroes are not born, they are self made through their actions and deeds. Perhaps there are no more heroes. Perhaps this is the end for man. A handful of survivors are left to decide. http://www.amazon.com/SODIUM-Heroes-ebook/dp/B005ISZB4O
Written in the first person, Escape Company. begins with two men bound together by the same experience. With both of their wives in prison, they are fired with the same idea—how to get their ladies out.
The idea becomes an obsession, with meticulous planning involving prison routines, deadlocks, and security cameras, not to mention razor wire and some very unfriendly dogs.
Our two heroes spring their wives successfully and the idea occurs to them to form a limited company—limited to certain prisoners who merit release. So Escape Company. is born, a dedicated team of lawbreakers whose services are provided to inmates with large amounts of cash.
There are rules of course. Terrorists, sex offenders, and psychos can stay where they are, but anybody else? Well, each case is decided on its own merits.
Could such a scenario possibly work? Of course not…oh, but there was that breakout from Parkhurst not so long ago.
Wasn’t there some incident at Barlinnie? Then, if you remember, there was all that hoohah at the Scrubs…. No, it couldn’t possibly work. Escape Company is pure fiction…isn’t it?
