The ether

Where do authors get their ideas from? I keep getting asked this, and you know what, I have absolutely no frickin idea. My first proper book (there were some before this, but let’s not dwell on those lol) was Cobra Z, which actually started as a screenplay. One day I woke up with the image of an aircraft carrier on …

The Seventh Seal

It’s been a hell (lol) of a ride Did I think I would be able to write 7 books in less than 10 months. No, but the last book is done and is winging its way through the ether to the editor. Once it’s back it will be up on Amazon within a matter of days. So mid to late …

It’s a conspiracy

The internet is useful for many things, some of them good, but a lot of them not so. One of the latter aspects is how rife the internet is with conspiracy theories. From JFK to 9/11 there are thousands of website, blogs and books that proclaim to have the TRUTH about the world. There is a basis to some of …

The Antichrist

A few months ago (actually pre-COVID) I woke up one morning with a thought. What if there was a secret sect of Catholic assassins running around ridding the world of demons. That initially morphed into the idea for a short story, hence Inquisitor Wrath (ASIN : B084B1TZ2V). But then I got to thinking. If demons were a story, what about …

What COVID 19 taught me about governments

As an apocalyptic author, the scenarios I write about unfold in a fictional world based upon the present reality. It’s important to me that my worlds have some semblance of truth. So whilst, say, a zombie virus will never inflict humanity, the way governments might react to that virus has to be based in truth. There are three overriding scenarios …

On the question of zombies and other mystical beasts

One of the things I’ve noticed with social media over the last year or so is that it has become progressively more toxic. No matter what you post, there seems to be someone, somewhere who will take offence or just feel the need to post sh*t in response. Twitter seems to be the land of the “I’m offended” crowd, whereas …

Happiness?

The following blog is filled with biased opinions and ridiculous generalisations. It’s inane, full of concepts so misguided as to make the very God’s weep. It’s not even opinion, instead more like the perverse ramblings of the insane. If you allow yourself to become offended by anything I say, take that into account and ask yourself why you are letting …

Societal collapse

Any fan of apocalyptic horror fiction knows that, when TSHTF modern civilisation will collapse in on itself. The state will turn against the people, and the people will band together and either wall themselves off or become roaming band that feed off the survivors. In this time of COVID (which isn’t apocalyptic, but may be dystopian) it might be worth …

The First Seal

Some of you have noticed there is a new book out. Some of you have even read it. Thanks to those who took the risk. I’m nearly three books in and I’m still trying to figure out where the idea for this book series came from. Some authors sit down and plan meticulously how their characters and plot will develop. …

Thoughts on the apocalypse 1

This blog post contains flawed opinions, biased viewpoints, and egregious generalisations. You have been warned 😉 You will notice I haven’t been blogging much the past month or so.  This is due to a recurrence of an illness that is basically forcing me out of my day job. I think it was time anyway.  I’m spending most of my time …
