‚ÄčDEAF WISH - Spring 2018

Believe me, there is nothing bold or courageous in taking the decision to sacrifice everyone and everything you have lived and worked for since you were a young man in exchange for the uncertainty of a new life thousands of miles away, with a woman you have convinced yourself you love, but, in truth, you really hardly know. 

I should know. I did it. And now, I must pay for all the wrongs  I've done and a bunch that were not even down to me.

After eighty years, the Lisbon bank is finally closing the doors of its safe deposit facility. But before it can do so, there are boxes that have been locked since their wartime treasures and secrets were first secured.

Rita Krakowski has witnessed a train of events which powerful influences seek to silence forever. Wrongs have been done that must be put right before it is too late. Who will have the courage to seek out the truth and perform the Last Rights?

The Cull - Work in Progress

In the second half of the 21st century there is a new world order striving to deal with survival after a coordinated terrorist plot to destroy or contaminate seventy percent of the world's oil reserves. Now thirty five years on from the attacks, a coalition of nations have formed a new entity, INCOL, to preserve peace and Jack Freeman, a rank and file political deputy, is charged with special responsibilities for senior citizens in the London Area. What Jack learns is that plans exist to reduce the size of the population so that scarce resources can enable the fittest to survive. As the plans unravel, Jack is faced with decisions that not only conflict with everything he stands for, but also the revelation of  events in his early life about which until now he was unaware.
