Innovative thinking

I wrote this on a post on LinkedIn by Richard Branson and liked it... I had to blog it

Pushing boundaries and thinking outside the box is important and drives many of us. Innovation through need and lateral thinking takes us on a better journey. Then it is up to us to continue this and lead others safely through the changes

Paranormal activities in hospitals

Phantasms in the Infirmary

Is this a potential mini series for television? 

For all those who work in hospitals or ever have done, you will be familiar with haunted corridors, wards and spectral shenanigans.
Even if you are not a nurse, doctor or hospital staff, this anthology of ghostly tales is just what you need.
This is a work of horror fiction.
It is a collection of ghostly short commentaries and ghoulish encounters, that occur in a fictitious hospital. All assured to send shivers down your spine.
They are based on tales that have been shared by many hospital staff over many years of work in healthcare.
They have been meticulously developed into the tales contained within this compendium of scary fantasies.
The sightings, strange sounds and sinister goings on of the spectral activity retold in this book are based on true experiences, that have become local folklore in many hospitals.
The presence of those that have "unfinished business", gripes or other reasons for not wanting to pass on, preferring to linger in the realm between life and death. Those that are not alive, but then again are not completely gone.
They linger, hanging on to this mortal coil for their own reasons in whatever way they can. Not ready to let go, their affairs left incomplete for whatever the reason may be. Their presence remains, not always a peaceful one.
These myths take place in hospital, buildings that have been constructed to heal the sick and injured. However they are also edifices that have seen a lot of deaths.
This collection is intended to relate some of the more memorable legends.
Ghostly nuns, haunted wards and supernatural spectres... If you like to be spooked, this is the book for you.
Available as a kindle or paperback book

Kindle version at £0.99

Yes folks,  Legally Lucky is still available for £0.99.
Amazing story for an amazing price on
Only a few days left for this visualisation of hope, dreams and aspirations.

Do yourself a favour, Get a copy and read it, experience this warming story of excess, success and hope. 
It will bring you back to earth and live in the moment.

Kindle spikes

I was checking my Amazon author page and it's extremely gratifying to see my books are being downloaded and read.
Kindle spikes are forming like colourful stalagmites...  #pleased

I do hope that this yields some reviews and more encouragement to us self published authors who mainly do this out of duty.
Duty to share our thoughts and stories with the aim to enjoy and relish in the fantasy...

Getting books on shelves

I have had several requests for my books to be available in bookshop shelves in Gibraltar.
Why Gibraltar? 
Well it's my original home town.
However as a self published author, I have no distribution network.
Anyone know how to realise this and appease the fan Base back home??


A peek inside the new batch of stories

A sneaky peek inside Phantasms in the InfirmaryVolume II....


"The more enlightened our houses are, the more their walls ooze ghosts’. author"Italo Calvino

I feel the quote above is a good introduction to this sequel. It is from Italo Calvino, the journalist and writer of short stories and novels. It is appropriate in two ways, firstly it directly mentions an enlightened building and it is attributable to hospitals, centers of medicine, science and knowledge. Secondly is the fact that these buildings walls will ooze with a plethora of paranormal phenomena and apparitions aplenty.

A ghost can be describes as a disembodied human being who is "lost" and bound to their earthly surroundings for a myriad of differing reasons. Due to the nature of hospitals, medical facilities may be the last place a departed soul remembers, and a place where their last state of mind was not so good. It is therefore not uncommon for a hospital to be haunted by the presence of the departed.
Hospitals are an ideal environment where a gravely ill or infirm mortal departs to a different plain. Granted, this can occur in any place but the frequency that they arise in these built environs is a near certainty that these will result in a haunting. Mind warping drugs may be administered, added to this, the strong physical and emotional suffering by the deceased, is it any wonder the hospital settings are rife with ghosts. Could this be the reason so many nurses have ghost stories from within the hospital walls? 
Phantasms in the Infirmary, was our first collection of some of the many spectral phenomena that have been reported over the many years. This was the tip of this spectral iceberg but there are plenty more where they came from.

They are stories that have been adapted for the enjoyment of the reader but they are none the less, true representations of ghostly encounters in hospitals from around the world. As disturbing as they some of them may be, the next batch of tales has been requested and this is why Volume II needed to be written.

The following assembly of ghoulish accounts attempts to provide an account of the disembodied spirits that roam the extensive corridors and wards of many a healthcare establishment that have witnessed the end of many a life.

The fictitious St Augustus Hospital is again, representative of the myriad of hospitals worldwide which harbour the many apparitions within them. St Augustus Hospital may be a made-up institution but it is where these off-kilter beings continue their search for help and direction. Within the medium of fiction, it is hoped that these ghosts that manifest themselves as moving shadows, see-through apparitions, cold spots and disembodied voices have their story told.  

Following the publication of the first volume, we have had numerous emails and suggestions of what to include in this one. These include dark, human-like figures standing at the foot of hospital beds, bright orbs that appear and follow a pre-ordained and non-random path and apparitions aplenty.

We again hope that these stories are enjoyed and do not cause any alarm or distress to the reader. After all they are intended to be tales that have been articulated and re-told for the enjoyment of the lover of the horror genre with an original slant to it.

They are not full of gore and bloodshed and try to extract the human aspect of the stories behind the legends of the inhuman facades that ghosts and spectres represent. 
In many ways, we haunt ourselves with the belief that they, ghosts exist. However can we be sure they don’t exist?

For those into horror without the gore,  this one will suit.
Also,  the Spanish version is soon to be available for all... Para todos.

Money makes the world go round

Would loads of money enrich your life?
Having millions in the bank accomplish and complete you?
Is this a driver in your life?

If the answer to these questions is yes,  then you need to read Legally Lucky...

My first book directly challenges this and will hopefully inject a different outlook on life.

There are more precious things in life like love, friendship and family.
The twists and turns in this story are all encompassing and entertaining to boot.

It's got some great reviews and it was what propelled me to write more.

This book is different and has been likened to In the pursuit of happiness... It's a spellbinding read that will leave you wanting more.

Well you'll be glad to know there are more.
Different books and stories like Phobic Wars, Mental Dental (MBP) & Phantasms in the Infirmary.

A cockroach free world

Repelling roaches, is the world a better place without these scuttling insects?
Phobic Wars addresses this directly.
It's a fusion of mythology, science and scifi.
The main protagonist fathoms a way to get rid of Cockroaches with a scientific breakthrough.
The world embraces this idea,  after all,  what use are they with their filthy ways?
This is until the Medusa Dermaptera,  a creature from the past is awoken due to the massive culling and near extinction of these insects.
The fragile ecological balance of our planet is threatened and it's ironic that the only solution, as passed mystically by  ancient Atlantis beings are cockroaches.
An enthralling work of fiction in need of your readership and reviews...

Available as an ebook or paperback format on Amazon.
