Robin Newbold is a London-based journalist and freelance travel writer, whose work has appeared in Time Out, the South China Morning Post, Bangkok Metro and Gay Times. He has written two novels, Vacuum-Packed and Bloody Summer.
Fuelled by easy drugs and even easier sex, Vacuum-Packed chronicles the high-octane lives of two teenagers, Craig and Jamie, as they each search for their own redemption through the danger, glamour and grime of the British and Thai sex industries.
BLOODY SUMMER is an emotionally gripping thriller set in late ’90s London. It shows how things can go explosively wrong when the powers of desire, repressed sexuality and unrequited love meet.
When Mancunian hunk Bill moves in with Adam and Sarah things get complicated. In Bill Sarah gets what she wants. Adam is left to pursue his desires elsewhere. But how far is he willing to go to get his man?
