The Novels

My favorite reading is the thriller. You can't beat them for grabbing the reader's attention and drawing them, kicking and screaming, into the imaginary world within the pages of the novel.

Thrillers are cross-genre in that you can have fantasy-thrillers, romantic-thrillers, action-thrillers, historic-thrillers and a long etc. What typifies a good thriller, however, is it's unrelenting pace. They so mesmerise the reader, like watching a cobra just before it strikes, that all sense of the real world around you is temporarily lost.

My thrillers vary in their sub-genres. I like to explore the unknown. You could say that contemporary suspense thrillers is a servicable description - I hate labels so I won't agree. I like to take proven facts or theories and add a twist of 'strange', shake vigorously, and serve hot and fast.

Others want the package's contents too, including a high-tech Intelligence agency that will stop at
nothing to obtain it.

...and the sender wants it back!
