Overview

'As long as we have each other, the rest will fall into place...'

With a trail of failed romances behind him Englishman Mark wonders if there really is such a thing as 'the one'.

Then he meets Jo, an American tourist who looks like his favourite actress, makes him laugh and shares his passion for music.

They soon fall in love and when she leaves at the end of her vacation he can't live without her and flies out to propose. They return to England to begin a new life together and for a year everything is perfect.

Just when he thinks life couldn't get any better they are involved in a controversial and very public claim for a lottery jackpot worth millions.

Jo reassures him that whatever the outcome they still have each other but Mark soon loses sight of what really matters and it costs him his friends, his job and everything he holds dear including Jo.

Embarking on a physical, emotional and spiritual journey all that stands between him and the one thing he truly loves in the world is an ocean, a cult leader with a prophecy and a big question...

'Is life governed by luck or belief?'

Meet the Author

Hello from England. This is a little bit about me, thanks for stopping by!

Despite a reprimand by an English Teacher at school for having 'a little too much imagination' I continued to enjoy writing stories. I wrote my first novel length book in the mid-nineties and continued to write half a dozen more that gathered dust until I published one of them in 2009.

I simply write what is there and watch the characters grow, it's as long or short as it needs to be to tell that particular tale. The 'themes' to my stories may vary considerably but they tend to all be driven by colourful characters in different scenarios.

As Stephen King said: "The object of fiction isn’t grammatical correctness but to make the reader welcome and then tell a story."

That sums up my approach really, I hope people like my work of course but never try to target a particular audience or chase a trend. The digital age means that creative artists can get their work out without fitting into neat boxes for huge organisations.

Creative work of any kind should in my opinion be judged on it's merits by each individual who engages with it, not by mass promotion or hype.

I also try to make a short promo film for each book so feel free to check those out on the book page or at my website!

The Good: Six Magic Numbers starts out fun-filled and progresses to the evils of the love of money, a religious cult, and redemption. The Bad: Lack of punctuation (simply hundreds and hundreds of commas were missing); sentences run together with no thought of punctuating them; 'was sat' and 'were sat' and other interesting word choices and spellings. The American characters frequently spoke in the manner of the British, using their words and idioms. The Ugly: Arrogance: The author's 'about me' was enlightening. He quoted Stephen King as saying something to the effect that a story is not about grammar (and punctuation) and so he didn't worry about it. That reason, the Ugly, makes this book ...
