A teenage assassin and the uncle who trained her, a trio of backstabbing killers, and a man Merie knows for a fact wants her dead. And that's just the people she works with.

Ever since the night her husband burnt alive, Merie has wanted to escape her job and leave the city of Fea Little, the largest still standing in the Interior, The Crossroads of the North and trade centre of a vast area.

In charge of collecting taxes in The Petals district, for too many years Merie has been undermined by others. All trust has gone, leaving only steely determination and an overwhelming need to give her family a better life. She also knows she needs to watch her team carefully. Each is dangerous, with secrets of their own.

But Merie has a plan, one she has worked on for years and her last, best chance to escape. She knows it is not foolproof and she knows it could all still go wrong — especially when the night is full of those who want her murdered, and nothing and no one are what they seem.

Death and Taxes — the only certainties in life — examines the lengths one woman will go to in order to provide security for her family. Lengths which keep getting longer and longer. Get it right and Merie will be free. If not, there'll be four more orphans on the streets.

About the Author

I was born in 1977, one of the micro-generation of people who experienced an analogue childhood and digital adulthood. Sometimes called Xennials, sometimes ‘The Star Wars Generation’, this duality had a definite impact on how I see the world.

I am Scottish. Technically, I was born in England, in a now dead and disappeared county, but my family moved to the far northern islands of Orkney when I was eight and I grew up there. Scotland remains the closest thing I have to a home nation.

I write for a sort-of-living and travel and live in places where the small amount of money I make from my words goes further. This feeds into my work, new experiences and cultures adding extra flavour and detail. Rather than the oft-derided “Digital Nomad” tag, I prefer the more Snufkinesque “Globally Feral”. It fits. I am not a travel writer, but a writer who travels.
