Writing - Artistic urge

It is a compulsion - Art and all its associated forms. If I'm not writing, I'm involved with music at some level, and this week I have re-discovered the fascination I have with drawing. I haven't cleaned out my painting equipment for some time but I can see that coming on also. 
At this point it should be noted that I don't have any proof that I'm good at any aspects of art but I love trying and surely that is the point. I go places, keep my eyes and ears open and then produce something! Of course, most recently, that has been books.

My only commission!

I have done many sketches of varying subject and quality but here are the books.

 My hero was created post recession and so has no concept of how 'good' things were pre-2008. In 'I Have To Get It Right' when he began to flex his muscles he was working in an accountant's office. Then after the Gurentai took him under their wing and removed all of his financial worries, it was justice that was his major concern. He did become involved in international relations in 'The 51st State' but it was for the maintenance of a respectful distance between countries, rather than economic reasons. His trips into the USA had repercussions which can be read about in 'The Biter Bit' but then by the time things began to change in 2011 and the recession was really biting, Steele was trying to make sense of the state of the nation in 'A Changed Reality' and coming up against some really nasty people taking advantage of the shortage of money. By the time the USA are out of their recession Steele's steps are still being dogged by an unknown enemy from the same country. In 'Inceptus' we also find out more about what makes the man tick. The most recent Steele book 'Castled' where Steele is once again at risk from unseen enemies. It would seem that he has become quite recession proof!
The most recent addition to the Steele family is Earth plc in which our hero is concerned with political and emotional issues in this crime fighting adventure.

All books are available in paperback or ebook through Amazon, Smashwords and all good book shop websites.






This is a dystopian story that hinges directly on the state of the nation as a result of fiscal mismanagement. Having said that it is more a story of human relations, privations, love and loss.



Poetry - there are also two thoughtful collections of poetry available solely through Amazon.
