About the Author

Neal James (pen name), an account from Derbyshire began writing in 2007 when one of his short stories made it into the top ten of an international competition. He realised that he had a wealth of factual information at his fingertips which he could convert into fiction.
His background is that of a miner�s son. Educated through the state system to degree level, he found work after college in accounting and that is where his qualifications lie. However, a broad industrial working life has provided him with sufficient data to mould a number of plotlines into novels.
Neal James is the author of �A Ticket to Tewkesbury� and �Short Stories Volume One�, �Two Little Dicky Birds� and �Threads of Deceit�.
There has been coverage of Neal�s work in the local press; The Derby Evening Telegraph, The Ripley & Heanor News, and the Derbyshire and Radio Derby.

Two Little Dicky Birds ,   Neal James Two Little Dicky Birds is a psychological thriller that keeps the reader engaged following the career of a serial killer and the New Scotland Yard officers that are trying to catch him. This first novel, by Neal James delivers with a one, two punch.  The past and present intertwine creating a complex plot and series of subplots.  The story begs to be read.  With the brevity of the chapters, I found myself reading on and on way past the time I should have turned out the light. I wanted to know what happened next. I found myself routing for the officers, and hoping that the serial killer would leave something behind so they could catch him. The taunting personality of Peter T. and the dedication of Paul B. add to the depth of the novel. Events that shaped their lives and the way they both turned out are proof that genetics aren’t the only factor in the making of the man.  I thoroughly enjoyed reading Two Little Dicky Birds. I’m a new fan of Neal James!

This was fun to read. James writes at a very quick pace, and leaves you little time to breath before the next twist comes. It's that quickness, and twisting of the knife, that I really love about this book and the stuff James comes up with. I strongly recommend it for an easy-reading thrill ride. It certainly is hard to put down. And we, Onyx Dragon Productions, were more than happy and willing to help James with his book cover for this wonderful piece.

On Saturday 5th April 1975, in a fit of rage, Paul Townley killed his father. The signifiacne of that single event was to affect the rest of his life, as he vowed to make it his mission to rid society of the type of person that Harold Townley had become. The first killing took place six months later, and over the following 15 years, seventeen more were to follow, as a trail of devastation covered the length and breadth of England. DCI Colin Barnes looked down at the letter on the desk before him. An icy hand gripped his heart as he read its taunting words. He knew that he would, once more, be faced with the serial killer who called himself......Petey.
