Writing - Happy birthday Kirk Douglas

It would be remiss of me to pass up the opportunity to wish Kirk Douglas a  happy 100th birthday. Truly amazing and he looks quite well and strong.

A remarkable career and the head of a significant acting dynasty that have retold stories on screen for many years. It isn't that hard to imagine why acting dynasties occur in that it is just like people staying in the family business. It seems to occur less frequently in the families of authors.

There are notable exceptions - the Brontes - but writing doesn't seem to be an art form with a whole bunch of transferable skills. It rather supports my belief that there is an incredible depth of ones personality in the written word.


At the current time there is the presidential election in the USA and if you consider the electoral system there is undoubted connection back to the events of 9/11. There is the involvement of the security agencies, unexplained and precipitate actions by the US Government and a failure of security agencies to communicate knowledge with each other. Many of the same people are probably still in post 15 years later. So read 7 Hours After and allow your mind to wander freely and decide what is fact and what is fiction.









Synopsis

Patrick Steele is off crusading once again with his sidekick, fiancée Naomi Kobayashi. This time he is risking life and limb by returning to the hostile shores of the USA. He has had brushes with the authorities in that vast country on previous occasions, but now has been stimulated to return because of apparent dodgy dealings over the World Trade Centre disaster of September 11th 2001.
After discovering numerous ‘theories’ concerning 9/11 and who was behind it, Steele identifies possible links between large corporations with financial interests and political parties. In a presidential election year he is concerned that those vying for that prodigious post may have links with the disaster.
Has Steele discovered underhand dealing by the US security services? 
Did one of the major political parties have a hand in the destruction of 9/11?
Will Steele be caught by the CIA or can he escape back to the safety of the UK?
