The European Renaissance never happened. The Ottomans were not stopped at the gates of Vienna. Ferdinand and Isabella failed in their attempt to defeat the Moors. Imagine a world turned upside down. Northern Europe is the basket case. The Middle East is the centre of the developed and "civilised" world.

Acts is a reflective, personal journey, a moving story of loss, love and transition. It is about Marwan the boy and Marwan the man - and not so much the wider socio-political implications of the world he finds himself in, although these glimpses offer a thought-provoking dimension. The story is uplifting as Marwan's humanity shines through: the book itself is like a meditation on isolation, which links the reader with Marwan: to keep the focus on him keeps the reader's focus narrow - so there is a real empathy there. One loves Marwan as Marwan himself loves...

...and through Marwan's story we ask a simple question; how would we behave if we were dealt the same hand as the Lebanese in the 1980's or the Palestinians and Iraqi's now? Acts of Faith takes us on a journey of hope amid chaos and brutality in a world so very similar to the one that we feel so comfortable in, except that it might very well be we who are the extremists.

Meet the Author

I've been writing since age 11 and had various shorts and pieces of poetry published over the years. I started writing longer fiction a few years ago. You can check out video's of many of my stories for free at:

I have some experience in the industry generally, having worked as a journalist and contributor to various magazines and newspapers, although I'm concentrating on fiction right now.

I'm looking forward to getting new work up for you all in the coming months and hopefully we'll get chance to share work, comments, feedback and all that good stuff...

Cheers for now,

Clive
