Smashwords Interview

What is your most recent work?
My novel trilogy 'Graveyards of the Banks', will come out on 6 March 2015. Volume 1: 'I did it for the money'. I worked on those books for five years, mostly full time. They are based on my life on the graveyard shift at The Most Successful Bank in the Universe in London, a haunting tale from the dark heart of capitalism. I devote as much time as I can to getting the word out. It's the most important thing I've done in my life.

London, summer of 1915. Moriarty, the 'Napoleon of Crime', tries to outwit 'The Other Mr M' to invest his profits into financing the First World War. Both sides of it. As the body count rises on an epic scale, Moriarty leads us through a maze of plot twists. A clever tale with dark humour and characters that could come straight out of the tales of Sherlock Holmes whom Moriarty despises deeply.
A Matter of Angels
Price: Free! Words: 6,690. Language: English. Published: December 24, 2014. Categories: Fiction » Holiday » Christmas
'The Virgin Mary had more lines but I had the better costume.' Nine year old Nyla is cast as an angel in her school play. Well, at least she’s not a sheep. So far… This school production is not pretty. It opens up the cracks in the social and religious divides, and all those dark family secrets. Told with wry humour and compassion. For everyone who's ever been in a school play.
