Signed Copy


I am giving away an autographed copy of my novella–Why:? A Complicated Love.
It is essentially a story of love, however, one reviewer complained that the sex was too graphic. If that one opinion persuades you not to enter then that saddens me, but I understand.

This free event is also running on Goodreads or alternatively, you can send your entry email to—shaunreddin (@) (without the spacing) and your name will be added automatically.

The Writers Desk

Again I have cancer. Stage 3 lung cancer but I am fighting for life…again. This is the fourth time cancer has taken a bite out of me and it’s no fun.

I thought maybe if I write about it, it would give me the strength to beat it once more. So far I have had to be given two units of blood, two units of iron, B12 shots, chemotherapy, radiation and a host of tests. MRI, CT, Blood work, etc, but I have to say my knee is healing and I am able to walk without a cane. Now if the chemo doesn’t destroy my immune system and my knee doesn’t get infected again I just might be around for a while longer.

I so appreciate all of you for hanging in there with me, and I will try to post whenever I can. However, I try to read your…

The Taming of The Stew

If you know your onions
And your onions know you,
Then it is beyond doubt
That you’ll make a splendid stew.

But if your onions were soft
When you gave them poke,
Then your stew will be sadly
Beyond any hope.

Now carrots are a thing that
Can be misunderstood.
They should be left rather firm
But not as hard as any wood.

When it comes to flavouring
Please put in a dash of sage.
Take a wooden spoon and
Give it a stir at this stage.

Next just add the meat
And in the oven do place,
Whilst asking the cooking Gods
To bless it with some grace!

This is not a Jack and Jill novel!

It’s an intelligent well-researched book full of intrigue, secrets and lies for the reader who expects more.

The Deva Station And Kat Astrophe With a Chance Goneabegging

A Short Comical Story Told In Two Parts

A Taster—

A Wild Winter’s Mid-Morning In The Reminski District, Moscow, Russia

His initial feeling of gushing pride at being selected by the captain of detectives from the final year of cadet school to accompany him to a murder scene was quickly forgotten as the ground beneath his feet both crunched in agony and screamed in pain, as by measured stride followed by measured stride, the distance between the warmth of an official car and the body of an untidily dressed man widened until at last the Police Lieutenant Colonel’s car was reached. A window of the automobile was lowered, but no invitation to share the warmth within was extended to the new recruit. Motionless he stood, unable to curb the chilling frost that rose through his leather-soled shoes and climbed his legs like Superman on steroids, soon eating at the flesh beneath his lightweight college garments. In increasing discomfort, he began his account of the scene he had just walked from.

Why? A Complicated Love

Don’t count our life by the days that are past

Love doesn’t die on the day that’s our last

Love lasts forever and if it’s what made us whole

It will live with our spirit in the depths of our soul.

Love, Sex, Murder
