About Dave McGee

Though I trained for a musical career, I ended up as a drugs enforcement officer in the UK! So, I guess John Lennon was right when he said life's what happens when you're making a plan.
I write in a variety of styles encompassing humour, gritty reality, and a generous portion of erotica. The stories are often, though not always GAY themed, and quite irreverend. Humour's a hard act to pull off but if you've enjoyed what you read I'd love to hear from you. www.david.mcgee@rocketmail.com

Wonderful atmospheric story

Review by: Rigby Taylor on Feb. 20, 2011 :
“The Watch” is an absorbing short tale in which the author leads the reader calmly yet irresistibly with spare yet perfectly modulated descriptive prose back in time to pre-war England, perfectly capturing the atmosphere of the great railways, while reminding us of how much more precarious life was then. We feel empathy and affection for the elderly politician, and pity for the hopeless social situation of the young steward. A haunting piece that left me wondering if my life had been too narrowly focussed, reminding me not to miss opportunities.
