James Galileo


I am a 30 something educator, sequestered in Scotland, who, for much of his adult life, has shamelessly harvested the experiences of students and of close companions to produce amusing works of unpublished fiction. Through my university degree in English Literature, I have honed my literary techniques, completing my dissertation in creative writing around the time that the Global Express went off the rails and the familiar narratives began to pall. I am looking for a readership that shares my vision and enthusiasm for stories with strong characterisation, excitement and pitch-dark humour, and I hope that we can take this journey into the Mytho-modern era together…

The Book of Boar: Bounty Hunter is a hard-boiled crime thriller with a wicked satirical edge. When William ‘Boar’ Summers sets out to capture a prodigal senator’s son, he uncovers a sinister conspiracy which leads him on a breakneck ride across a Mytho-modern American landscape. Accompanied by his eleven year old daughter, he must bring the guilty parties to justice, preferably without bloodshed.
