The UK Government are taking a high-powered group of businessmen and women on a tour of the British isles, golfing and seeing the sights, as part of a push for global trade. But when one of the crew goes missing, and an elderly local ornithologist disappears, will the pressure become too great? The arrival of a face from the past, sends Daley’s world into a tailspin. And the lives of the passengers and crew of SS Great Britain, as well as the country’s economic future are in jeopardy. DS Brian Scott comes to the fore, and replete with a temporary promotion, is once more - most reluctantly, in his case - back at sea. Daley faces a life and death struggle, but is this his last throw of the dice?

In a world where humanity bear wings and racial tension divides a city, things are... Complicated. Daneel just wants her family safe but was never meant to be the one protecting them; Jedekiah is busy trying to burn out the voices in his head while his home is falling apart; and North isn't even sure what's happening, but he's pretty certain it won't end in diplomacy. But after an unfortunate "accident" throws these three unlikely - and unwilling - allies out of their comfort zones and into each others' worlds, they are going to have to learn very quickly the meaning of teamwork and cooperation, to ensure their survival through the city's notorious Disciplines, a (usually) optional gladatorial tournament. Victory will involve breaking boundaries, breaking bones, and occasionally breaking North's glasses - but the stakes might be higher than any of them realise. It's more than just their wings that they're fighting for.

A chance remark by a sensitive daughter to her depressed mother sparks off this fulsome story. Unresolved issues, that have been haunting Margo for most of her adult life, are vividly recalled as she is catapulted into an intense psychological journey over a period of five days. Her re-awakening mind becomes increasingly aware that it has been set on automatic pilot for some years and little, further purpose is served by her accrued defences. In the process of review, she begins to recognize the psychic supports that have been with her all along and is somewhat surprised, as was the writer, at their identity. Internal landscapes range from a childhood in Scotland, to adulthood in Central Africa; from a stable village home, to a precarious city flat; from the wild, West Coast of Scotland, where gulls fly, to the wild streets of Glasgow, where gangs rule. The personal issues are explored with candour and pathos; but there is just as much genuine humour shared in the unfolding of these very human, and universally-recognized, life-situations. With its graphic imagery and flesh-and-blood characters, the story draws the reader into mystic worlds. The Author shines a light on the inner life and perpetual interconnectedness of all things and all beings. Ultimately, it is a tale of resilience and growth; insight and healing.

It's 1968, and the fishermen of Kinloch are preparing to celebrate the old New Year on the twelfth of January. The annual pilgrimage to the Auld Stones is a tradition that goes back beyond memory, and young Hamish, first mate on the Girl Maggie, is chuffed that he’s been invited to this exclusive gathering – usually reserved for the most senior members of Kinloch's fishing community. Meanwhile, it appears that the new owners of the Firdale Hotel are intent upon turning their customers teetotal, such is the exorbitant price they are charging for whisky. Wily skipper Sandy Hoynes comes up with a plan to deliver the spirit to the thirsty villagers at a price they can afford through his connections with a local still-man. But when the Revenue are tipped off, it looks as though Hoynes and Hamish’s mercy mission might run aground. Can the power of the Auld Stones come to their rescue, and is the reappearance of a face from Hoynes' past a sign for good or ill?

She lies to her father about where she is going and what she is doing. The next thing Elizabeth knows, she is on board a ship filled with unknown sailors, flying a French flag and heading to the enemy¿s shore. Soon Elizabeth wins the hearts of the crew.

This collection of poems is about the quintessential understanding of such pensive thoughts. They are about the lonely mind's yearning in the abyss, quixotic thoughts of starry nights, the life’s sores and maladies, and all those untold dying embers. Here’s the collection of poems that goes back to the days when you didn’t know what you’re crying for. Then they remind you of days when you didn’t cry even if you had all the reasons to do so. Here’s to the courage to go on no matter what happens and know that you’re strong even if nobody tells you so. All the emotive poesies are here to tell you that you can silence your insecurities and frustrations today. You can run through the pages and leave aside all the thoughts. You can free yourself from the weights you carry, the answers you’re looking for may not be here yet but the right time will come soon. So, why not we just live fully for this one moment and steal a breath for ourselves. It’s okay to keep floating and constantly get diffused like the clouds. It’s okay if you don’t know which turn to take, as the water in the river creates thousands of meanders too. In the end, when you’ll reach your destiny, you’ll get there as you; to live, dream and fly all over again!
