My Books

jack-reusen-cover-front2I’ve started a book series aimed at early chapter-readers but with content that should also appeal to slightly older children too. Book one ‘Jack Reusen and the Fey Flame’ is OUT NOW on Kindle, it was a 2014 ‘NaNoWriMo’ (National Novel Writing Month) winner and two more titles will be released in 2015. There is a dedicated website and blog for Jack’s adventures and I’d be more than happy if you’d be good enough to leave a comment or two (even just to say ‘hello’) if you find your way over there:

In ‘Jack Reusen and the Fey Flame’: Jack discovers that the world he knows (the ‘matter-world’) shares it’s space with something much stranger. A chance event in a forest near Jack’s home opens his eyes to the world of ‘Fey’: a place filled with magic, enchantments, shape-changing people, and creatures unlike anything Jack has seen before.

In this first book in the series, Jack is unwittingly responsible for tearing great holes between the two worlds. There are many surprises in store from the other side and a couple closer to home as well.

Print copies are available from Fun Junction in Perth and Crieff, Perthshire, Scotland.

I have also written a book on philosophy, tying together my MPhil thesis with some earlier research:

good life2‘Living The Good Life in a Modern World’ considers the nature of human thriving whilst looking at the impact which having a disability can have on one’s ability to thrive. The key topic addressed in this book is the nature of a good life and it presents arguments to explain how anyone, regardless of individual differences, can strive to be the best that they can be.

I consider these topics in the lightest possible manner, whilst taking these issues seriously. Chapters have intentionally been kept short to allow them to be read by anyone, regardless of how busy their schedule. I aimed for a lunch break reading time, meaning it shouldn’t take longer than about twenty minutes to half an hour per chapter.

It’s available on kindle from Amazon (in English only) in the UK, the USA, Germany, France, Spain, Italy, Japan, India, Canada and Brazil. If you choose to get yourself a copy (or even just read a sample) I hope you enjoy it and I hope you take the time to tell me what you think.

A paper edition is also available for £5.99, please contact me if you would prefer this option. Cheers, John

  1. […] has been a strange process, editing a fiction book is new to me (I’ve written non-fiction before). The main issue, surprisingly, came from my main ‘beta tester’. I’d joked about […]
