Straight from Goodreads, here's my review:
Let me start by saying I like this book. Four stars liked it. Its nice. So nice. So nice and safe.
Don't get me wrong, lots of people die. We have hangings, shootings, bludgeonings, poisonings and more, but only in a nice way. This is probably the least thrilling thriller I've ever read. Never once do we worry about something not nice happening to the (genuinely) lovable bunch of characters, unless you count Chris buying a bar of chocolate, or Joyce's daughter not coming for a visit.
Osman deserves huge credit for creating something that defies a lot of the standard rules of crime books - the baddies ain't that bad, our heroes are never in danger and the plot kind of trundles along rather than building to a climax.
Will I read book 2? Probably, because the book works well in so many other ways. The relationships are tender and real, and there is a gentle humour throughout that is very natural. So go ahead and read this book, just don't expect Harlan Coban levels of blood curdling excitement.
My short horror story is now live and available to read. You can check it out now on Wattpad or Smashwords.
Two women missing.
The truth to their disappearance might be closer than it seems...
So I've just finished my latest short story. Unusually for me it's horror, not a genre I write a lot. Ray Foley spends his days wondering the streets posting flyers through letterboxes. He's a simple kid and it's all very innocent. OR IS IT?!?!?
Of course not. Prepare for the twist...
Now I just need to decide what to do with it...
Dark humour, tarot cards, aliens and even Death himself make an appearance in my hilarious new short story “Like a Puppet on a String!”
This is my third story featuring intergalactic undertakers Fleishman and Graves, and you can read it right now for free on Smashwords! https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/1131162
A midnight clean up at the home of infamous Boss Goon goes sour and our intrepid duo end up on the wrong side of the authorities. Out of options, inspiration comes from a most unexpected source...
PS I wrote this story before a recent high profile news story! Read it and you’ll know what I mean. Sometimes fiction is nowhere near as strange as reality!
There's a really nice piece about me, my books and my writing journey on writing.ie
Remember, it's never too late to do the things you love!
Supernova is the third book in the Union of Worlds trilogy, but what exactly is the Supernova?
The Supernova is a virtual world where artificial intelligences come to hang out, share information and battle for supremacy.
When Aye-Eye enters the Remnant, the most dangerous part of the Supernova, he meets a dangerously powerful rival with one goal - to destroy him! Can he survive and make it back to his friends?
Find out in Union of Worlds: Supernova. All three books available now for the special price of €26 delivered anywhere to Ireland!
Good reviews are always nice, but when it's from the author of one of 2020's top selling books, it's even better!
