Take A Perfect Picture

‘Take A Perfect Picture’ is a police crime thriller and is the sequel to Another Arbor.

“I am proud to announce that I have just pressed the publish button on the Amazon/KDP website, and my third book will be out imminently!
Amazon, being the wonderful and responsible self-publishing platform that it is, review all prospective publications prior to release, and over that I have no control.
As you may see (if you subscribe to my newsletters), my third book was provisionally titled ‘Beach Bombs’.
Several social media interactions after announcing I was in the process of re-writing my third book, I decided rather than risk mockery or censure or find my book horribly misconstrued, I would re-title my book.
As any writer will readily agree, titles are often the most difficult part of story-writing.
What seems appropriate and fitting, and perfectly fine to you will often strike someone else as provocative, odd or even rude!
I finally settled on ‘Take a Perfect Picture’, and my book is almost a reality”.

My First Published Book

Another Arbor

‘Another Arbor’ is a gritty procedural crime thriller, where nothing is as it seems and the investigation has to plumb the depths of human nature to get to the truth. Here, crime really does cast an infinitely long shadow.

My Future Books

‘Cross of Anjou’ is another draft novel and I have created an idea for how the front cover may look. ‘Cross of Anjou’ will become a series of three novellas.

The first is the story of a young boy (Billy Baxter). Billy grows up in wartime Britain, and forms friendships with the young men of a local RAF Bomber Command Squadron airbase.

The second in the series continues the story through the eyes of Billy’s surrogate mother-figure, Esther Gray.

In the third novella in the series, Fred Gray takes up the baton of narrator, and we see how adversity shapes the airmen and local community as the war draws to a close.

‘Kill Plan’ is an anthology of shorter fiction, mostly within the crime/mystery genre, they are tales with a twist.
