'THE LOST PATROL' - re-edited and with a new cover!
There is a fate worse than death.
Robbie Greene, 16, on an enforced holiday in rural France, doesn’t believe in ghosts. Especially not ghosts of British soldiers killed in action in 1917. But the soldiers are real enough. Members of a patrol which disappeared on the Somme battlefield, and believed to have deserted, they are trapped in a no-man’s land between death and the Great Beyond, unable to move on until their real fate is revealed and their honour restored. Their leader, the charismatic and austere Sergeant Stone, convinces Robbie that their time is running out. Forces known as the Dark Ones are coming for them, to drag them into a hell from which there is no return... and Robbie is the only one who can help them.

In between writing novels, I continue to write shorter works, although the books are - happily - taking up more of my time. But a regular and enjoyable job is writing the ‘BEGINNERS’ column in WRITING MAGAZINE, which looks at the basics of being a writer.
I also write their ‘NEW AUTHORS’ column, which allows me to talk to debut authors about how they write, what they wrote and got published, and where they go from there. WRITING Magazine - http://www.writers-online.co.uk/
BOOK REVIEWS, TOO!
I was especially delighted to be asked by Mike Stotter, of crime-tastic online SHOTS MAGAZINE - http://www.shotsmag.co.uk - to contribute to their reviews section, which gives me a great excuse to read more books. (Tough job, but someone has to...)
