Hi ... and welcome! I have worked briefly as a UK tabloid journalist. I have also written four dark humor thrillers where my main character, Rudi Flynn, is a London based US journalist who drinks too much, keeps getting diverted emotionally by attractive women, and reluctantly agrees to become a US/UK secret agent. In UNDER COVER, DARK CLOUDS and HARPS & TEARS, my man Flynn is up against nasty Islamic jihadists who want to nuke London, Paris and New York. While in WEIMAR VIBES his target is the evil Oscar ‘Führer’ Kerner, who is trying to drag the UK and Europe back into a Hitler horror scenario.
I grew up in Ireland, where the Holy Ghost Fathers were grim, but girls from the Jacobs biscuit factory were great. I wrote short stories at Trinity College Dublin before moving to the Athens Daily Post. Here, in the port of Piraeus, worldly dark-haired women asked if one might like to have a good time, while in Syntagma Square tourists talked admiringly about the Acropolis and the Parthenon.
Back in London on my first booze-fueled tabloid it was 'deliver, or you're out!' So as an assistant leader-writer I duly attacked the Germans in 60 words while praising the virtues of British farmers in 120. It was much the same on tabloids two and three where I occasionally invented disgracefully scandalous stories about celebs, politicians and others who happened to be in the news ... but then I started writing fiction ... which I love!
