  1. Thank you for an honest About page. I admire your courage and transparency. Like you I drink a lot of coffee and am currently enjoying a glass of red wine (Pinot Noir, although I favor Cabernet Sauvignon). I’m also married and the father of one child, an adult daughter. Best wishes for continued happiness with your wife and son. I look forward to reading your posts.

  2. Just finished Head Boy after seeing it recommended by Amazon. I love Christopher Brookmyre’s stuff, which is why I guess Amazon highlighted this particular book. Absolutely loved it, a great tale written in exactly the style I have devoured recently….Brookmyre, Bateman etc.

    Have just bought the Strays collection and On The Seventh Day, the synopsis for which totally grabbed my attention.

    Keep ’em coming!
