About the Author
I was born and raised in Liverpool and from an early age I have always enjoyed making up stories. I'm interested in many genres but I would not complain if I was referred to as a thriller writer. I enjoy writing fast paced stories that intend to grab the readers attention from the start. To date, I have completed four novels, two of which are as yet unpublished - but another will hopefully be coming to KDP before the end of 2012. With the advent of e-books I have decided to take a deep breath and publish my work on the web and I am currently writing a sequel to The Shifting, that I call The Burning. My personal hero is my grandfather Angus Mackenzie Brown, because he always lived his life with dignity despite what life threw at him, including incarceration in a Prisoner of War Camp in Italy, from which he escaped and lived to tell the tale. I am in the process of editing my forthcoming release 'Lost Boys'. Delbert Walsh a world famous, yet alcoholic ex-detective is on the hunt for a serial killer in 1970's Liverpool. I'm happily married and have two fabulous daughters and quite simply the coolest cat in the land - Snoz! Hope you like the book, if you do please spread the word.
