From In The Drawers Of A Portmanteau

A collection of vignettes from 2004.


A novel written in 2001 and re-edited in 2008 - a quasi-spy drama that has been described as "post-modernist". It focuses on "ex-pat" life in Tunis, Tunisia, while also being concerned with the downing of Pan Am Flight 103, over Lockerbie, Scotland, in 1988.



The novel "...and then there were none" was published in 2000, by Minerva Press, London. It is now out of print. "Lacunae" is the re-edited (substantially) text of that novel. "Lacunae" then, is the first work, chronologically, of a "trilogy" that will eventually be: Lacunae, Tessarae, and Umbrae (the "Darrian and Sheeba" work-in-progress).

Fried Sushi

The contributions to an anthology of writing by "ex-patriot" writers living in Japan. Published in June 2002, by Alpha-Maya Press.

Darrian and Sheeba

An evolving narrative - a sort of feuilleton, that is as became used in English newspapers as a type of serial story (after the original Journal des Debats) - of the adventures of the two main characters. From 2008 and still a work in progress. These episodes are dedicated to tech-maestro Stephen Brown, whose invisible guiding hand is always on Darrian's shoulder...

"To transfer from our inward nature a human interest and a semblance of truth sufficient to procure for these shadows of imagination that willing suspension of disbelief for the moment, which constitutes poetic faith." Coleridge dictum (italics the authors).

And so these episodes also fall under the working title of "Umbrae".
