I have taken Just Making Sure off authonomy because I am self-publishing it as an ebook. It's now on sale with Smashwords, Apple, Kobo and Barnes & Noble (Nook).
I'd like to thank everyone who's backed the book on this website, especially Sigrid Olderdissen for her unwavering support, Tammy Ryan for repeated support and positive comments, John Miller, who took the time and trouble to comment in detail, and Colin Neville, for his generous comments and for recommending me to others. Thanks to all.

I'm open to a range of genre, literary traditions and styles. I particularly enjoy reading novels that convey a distinctive perspective on humanity. In my own writing my interests are psychological rather than philosophical, observational rather than judgemental. I seek to penetrate the skin of convention, morality and conscious values to expose the naked animal forces beneath. I hope to treat the resulting view of reality with compassion and humour, for how else should an agreement with life be negotiable?
