Being in a Band

“Life can be pretty humdrum at times but just every now and again a light bulb moment can change your life forever. So when our hero bank clerk decides he wants to be like the Gallagher boys, the die is cast and the path to musical stardom is set.”

Being in a Band captures the excitement around the time that Oasis punched their way on to the very top of the international musical globe. Their glorious rise from nowhere made people dream that they too could reach heights that had before seemed unachievable.

Being in a Band is a semi-biographical comedy, flitting from ridiculous incidents to riotous outings. The new band members, ever hopeful that their group ‘Wide Eyed Wonder’ will be picked up by some keen or desperate music executive, embark on a series of eventful gigs that just might get them recognised.

If only it was that easy…

The Birthday Gift

November 2014
ISBN: 9781784620103
Publisher: Matador Books

Noah Spearing is a young man teaching in St Ives, Cornwall when his life is changed forever after the death of his beloved grandad. A gift left for him from the man he loved more than anyone else turns out to be a poisoned chalice that he must deal with in the best way that he can.
All this comes at a time when the girl he wants is set to marry another man, and Noah must decide not only what to do with the gift from his grandfather, but also his love for Flora Trembath…

The Birthday Gift is a novel that sweeps through issues of love, of hope, of sorrow and of destiny. It spans across Europe, from Cornwall to London to France to Germany and then to Poland. The book is a gripping combination of thriller and romance, revolving around the painting central to the book which featured heavily in the recent Hollywood blockbuster, The Monuments Men, written and directed by George Clooney.

On Ashover Hill

October 2012
ISBN: 9781780883052
Publisher: Matador Books
Distributor: Orca Book Services

 
2046. A hand in skeleton form stands out in a pile of earth. Years of a hidden mystery are at last uncovered.

1934. In Naples, a squad of new British recruits are labouring under the hot Italian sun, and the story begins. Soldier William McTeer falls in love with a beautiful young Italian woman, Francesca, but the war tears them apart. Years later, a letter Francesca writes to William leads them to be reunited. They move to Edinburgh where their son Robert is born and the die is cast. The story then centres around Robert, his children, Taylor and Jasmine, Robert’s best friend Angus and his family, and their entwined lives. Tragedy follows, but redemption too. Behind it all lurks a secret too dark to even contemplate…

On Ashover Hill travels across Europe, spanning generations of the McTeer family and the love, hurt, pain and redemption that follows. It covers 103 years and a family in transition from a kiss to a birth, an act of inhumanity to a triumph act of love. Primarily a story of true romance, it weaves together a tale of unending love and family relationships with an undercurrent of mystery, crime and betrayal.
The book has been inspired by a number of authors, including Sebastian Faulkes, Helen Dunmore and Ian McEwan, and will appeal to fans of romance fiction, as well as crime fiction readers.
