My first book was written in response to finding a dream fragment (in a note by Anne Darach seven years before she died) in which she embarked on THE BITTER SHIP at 10 to 4, the exact time of her death.

Four other books have followed; fiction although naturally mostly true.

Though independent they are in a way sequential.

THE SHORT STRAW includes THE WASTED DAY.

And THE ANGEL MAKER includes THE LOST PICNIC.

NOW THIS is a work in progress marking out the pointlessness & absurdity of a quest for certainty.
