I’ve just published two books (December 2014). The first is published on behalf of my writing group, Hasiwriters who meet regularly in Haslingden Library. It includes two of my short stories: Writing Day and After School and is called:
Has You Like it.
This is a collection of short stories and poems from writers based in Rossendale, Lancashire, with a foreword by renowned poet Jean Sprackland.
The book has no particular theme but the chosen works are representative of the different styles and approaches of each writer. Be prepared to journey through places both familiar and strange in this collection.
This collection is available from Lulu 21953978
The second book is Science Fiction, set on an alien planet and has themes such as terra-forming, colonising and xeno-archaeology. Suggested reading age 12+, no foul language, some level of menace. This is called:
Lory Gato, Interstellar Gourmet
Lory Gato is a commissioning agent for CEAD, Core-Earth Azimuth Developments. What that involves is a stressful life, hopping from star to star seeking out ever more piquant tastes. Why? because the teeming billions of Earth can’t afford the fare to the exotic pleasure palaces of the galaxy. His mission? to boldly seek out places where no human tongue has tasted or nose has sniffed before. No matter how repulsive or quixotic those alien luxuries might be, he’s got to test them and send some back home. Yep, not what your average Joe does, but it has to be done.
Genial, fun-loving star-traveller Lory comes to T’negi 36. Does he bite off more than he can chew when he meets lovely xeno-archaeologist, jiz Le’acia?
