Welcome to Books, Life and Everything

Would you like to start by telling us a little about yourself and how you started as a writer?

I have been an avid researcher for years, ever since I began realising that the world we live in is based on an intricate web of lies. In recent years I have worked as an editor and investigative journalist, but the transition to becoming a writer – especially of novels – arose when I realised that the truth about what is really going on in the world could be more easily conveyed through interesting easy-to-read novels rather than fact-heavy journalistic articles. In addition, the platforms that tend to publish factual articles of this kind typically have readerships who are already fairly aware of the true nature of reality, whereas novels can reach a far wider range of people, including – most crucially – those who haven’t yet seen through the mendacity and falsehood that’s all around them.


Tell us about your latest book without giving the plot away.

My debut novel is called Fangs of Deception, and it uses a fictional story to shed light on the true motives behind a lot of what has happened in the UK and around the globe since 2019. Given that so much incriminating information is coming out now, revealing the lies and deception that politicians, the media and even the medical establishment have engaged in, I think more and more people are ready to investigate and uncover the truth behind the human and economic disasters that are unfolding around us. Fangs of Deception is based on years of research and is therefore more of a fictionalised nonfiction rather than completely fictitious.


How do you go about researching details and ensuring your books are realistic?

I have worked as an investigative journalist for many years, so I have extensive experience in peeling away layers of obfuscation and uncovering the real events – or conspiracies, which is what many of these events are – that the mainstream media desperately works to conceal from the masses. Fortunately, the truth is not actually hard to find. There are thousands of brilliant, honest journalists and researchers out there who do sterling work in shedding light on the nefarious plans of the elites, and there are several platforms that publish their findings.

Moreover, it is a key element of the elite’s code of conduct that the true nature of their agenda is made available to the public in one way or another, so that the discerning part of the population can see it and understand what the ultimate goals are. The elites actually need the information to be available, albeit in an unclear or misleading way, because this allows them to absolve themselves of all blame. Symbology and hidden meanings are very important to them. These facts are a key theme in my book.

Are there any secret references hidden in your books?

Plenty. A discerning mind will certainly be able to understand which individuals and entities are being referred to in the book.

Does writing energise or exhaust you?

Both. Certain sections of a book are exciting to write, and even just thinking about them energises me. However, there are lots of parts in a book that are fairly mundane – lets call them the boring trunk of the story, as opposed to the delicious fruits – and writing these can certainly be exhausting.

Can you give any hints about any upcoming books you have planned?

Fangs of Deception is the first book in a series. The story at the end of the book, though concluding nicely, begs for a further exploration of current events, and therefore I am in the process of writing the sequel, which will be called Fangs of Illusion. I am hopeful that it will be published before the end of this year.

 Thanks so much for telling us all about your writing life and your plans for future books.

Book Spotlight - Fangs of Deception

“We couldn’t care less about what a tiny minority of people think they know. We own the media, we own the courts. Hell, we own the whole bloody system, everything. There’s no stopping what we’re doing, Terry. Surely you’ve understood that by now.”


Just days after Carl Palmer introduces his new girlfriend to his cousin Terry at a family get-together, where he reveals explosive information he has discovered about the pandemic and the vaccines, he disappears into thin air. This forces Terry to delve into the world of ‘conspiracy theories’ and uncover the truth behind his cousin’s disappearance whilst undergoing a soul-searching journey of his own.


Exploring the themes of self-empowerment, anti-conformity and loss of innocence, Fangs of Deception is a gripping psychological thriller that offers a dystopian vision of a world in which both the mainstream media and world governments are pawns in a nefarious globalist plan for humanity.
