I write action thrillers which will make you laugh, cringe, cry & cheer. My protagonists are capable but flawed reluctant heroes who I hope are well worth investing your time in.
I am a man whose goal in life is to discover my goal in life. I live with my wife, who keeps my dream alive and my stomach tight against my trousers; my son, a dreamer just like me; and a dog who receives fuss like he's the one doing the favour.

Smashwords book reviews by Simon Jenner
- Please DO Feed the Animals ZOO
on Oct. 14, 2012
The story is well set up with a father and son taking a bonding visit to a new kind of zoo where the visitors can feed wild animals. The relationship feels real and you are routing for the protagonists right from the start.
I guess, given the title and genre, readers will reader expect things to turn nasty and this won’t disappoint. The tension builds well as you wait for things to start getting messy. The story has vague echoes of the movie ‘Cabin In The Woods’ whilst being slightly more reality based.
If you like your horror uncomplicated and bloody then this one’s for you. If you see an advert for this zoo near you, I suggest you go and see a scary movie instead.
- The Corpses of Old Farm Hill Road: The Arrogant Man
on Oct. 14, 2012
I read this after reading Ms. Short’s ‘Please Do Feed The Animals Zoo’.
Again, the tale was nicely set up but this time the protagonist is the far less likeable Arrogant Man of the title. Despite the unpleasant nature of the main character, you still find yourself on his side after he ends up at the mercy of a most unpleasant all female family.
Knowing that the Arrogant Man is due some comeuppance doesn’t make his ordeal any less excruciating. You find yourself putting on his shoes and thinking what you could possibly do to turn the tables. The tension build with every page you turn as you wonder what could possibly happen next and whether escape is just around the corner.
If you liked ‘The Texas Chainsaw Massacre’ then you’ll enjoy this.
- The Nameless World
on Nov. 28, 2012
Noah is a fifth grader who is regularly bullied by an older boy, Kevin, and his followers. Other than science with his favorite teacher, Mr. Porter, school life is far from enjoyable for young Noah.
One day, when Mr. Porter is mysteriously absent from the classroom, Noah stands up to Kevin and the knock-on effects lead him to discover two puzzle pieces that transport him to the titular Nameless World.
This new and fantastically imagined world is a wonderful place filled with the strangest of creatures and vegetation - some of which can even talk. Problems not dissimilar to those of our own world are starting to take their toll in ‘The Nameless World’ as nature suffers at the hands of those who seek to plunder its wildlife for their own pleasure.
It seems that destiny has a hero’s adventure in mind for Noah as he is quickly pulled into helping those that want to save their world as he seeks his way back home. Noah must dig deep to overcome his fears and do what he knows is right before attempting to leave his new-found friends.
I was pulled quickly into this story and found myself rooting for Noah every step of the way. There is a clear moral message which is delivered without lecturing and which never interferes with the reader’s enjoyment.
It is rare to find books for children as well written and descriptively crafted as this one. If you are a parent and wish to treat your child to a riveting read while encouraging them to consider the effects of the way we treat our planet then this is the book for you.
I highly recommend ‘The Nameless World’.
