Home Sweet Home Released Halloween 2015


I am pleased to reveal that Home Sweet Home made it's Halloween release deadline and is now available through Amazon's Kindle store.

It's priced at £0.99. I will be sure to let you all know when it enters a "freebie" period on Kindle.



David's parents celebrated early retirement by emigrating, leaving him with his not so lovable Aunt Peg. 
His life was going nowhere until he started working at The Manor. 
The Manor Care Home is an old building with a dark history and a secret it chooses to reveal during the late hours of the night shift. 

David's colleges like to tell a spooky story or two. But Stories are just Stories. Until a resident wakes in the middle of the night with a stranger's hand round her throat! 

Mongoose : Elephant In The Room


I was at Sheffield Film and Comic Con. Silent, yes. Dormant, mostly.
But I was there. I was listening.

I heard a woman talk about why Cosplay.. She talked through most of the day and the occasional phrase echoed across to me barely audible through the building...  Was It was about fitting in? ...  Was it about making friends? ... Or is there an elephant in the room here.

Are we, fully grown adults,... Incapable of living in the real world?!

I class the Analyst in this category. Always egger to jump into the next Arrow, the next Doctor Who or whatever else. Looking around the connection I suspect that most of us "adults" in that building were the same.  We watch, we talk and we analyse right?

“"Adults...struggle Desperately with fiction, demanding constantly that it conform to the rules of everyday life. Adults foolishly demand to know how Superman can possibly fly, or how Batman can possibly run a multibillion-dollar business empire during the day and fight crime at night, when the answer is obvious even to the smallest child: because it's not real.”"

Grant Morrison

Supergods: What Masked Vigilantes, Miraculous Mutants, and a Sun God from Smallville Can Teach Us about Being Human


Perhaps we enjoy blurring that line. I can see why a world with 'super heroes' would be more comfortable than the world we have.

But what of the fantasy programs specifically tailored for adults. What about the Game of Thrones? A world that takes the Dragons, Giant's and Dwarfs of Tolkien and mixes it with rape, torture, incest, and bent politics.

Thrones is perhaps humanities truest reflection.


Just A Mongoose posing the questions.

I will be in touch soon Spaceman.

Mongoose : Tulpa

So much has changed Spaceman.

So much that YOU came to me. YOU demanded I return. So here I am.


“You start something pure, something exciting then come the mistakes, the compromises. We create our own demons.”


That is not just a quote from Iron Man 3 but a cold hard fact.


Take a look at the world around you. Look closely at the books we consume, the video games we play, the movies we watch.. perhaps.. the Internet screen that you are looking at right now!
Ask yourself what kind of a world they depict?
I have no doubt that fiction is much bleaker now than it ever used to be.

Art imitating life... Or perhaps the other way around?

I am not some kind of questionable moral authority on  right or wrong. Just a Mongoose posing  questions. I fully expect to be hated for what I have to say..

But you know what. I'm fine with that! Because the world needs someone ask.  

A great man once told me that every decision was a moral one. Never has that been more true.

So a Tulpa...

A  phantom, a demon that we have constructed ourselves. What starts in fiction becomes so real that it's living, it's breathing and it walks among us.
We Create our own Demons..
Does this sound familiar?

I will be back in touch Spaceman!
