Hi everyone, I've stepped into the abyss......I'm a full time writer now! It's a tough life, but hey, I've got a sense of humour. I've come through only slightly demented from what the past 50 odd years has thrown at me, but on the positive side L.I.F.E has given me lots of fuel regarding stories to write about. However, it's not all bad; I'm now sailing in peaceful waters as still as a millpond and reaping the rewards from my life choices. About bloody time too........

A rock band with a difference:
Death is never too far behind the Seventies’ rock band Toten Herzen. Even their name means ‘Dead Hearts.’ Manager Micky Redwall was mysteriously killed in April 1977, and earlier on March 21st 1977 all four members of the band had supposedly been murdered in Highgate cemetery by Lenny Harper, a crazed fan.
Are the band members’ murders really a publicity stunt, or actual fact? Over 35 years later there is talk of a Toten Herzen comeback. Lenny Harper meets an unfortunate end, along with several critics who are just a little too critical of the band members and their music. Is the band’s publicist Rob Wallet involved in the latest spate of killings?
Other questions start being asked: Why have the band members not aged at all since 1977? How come they have no reflection and can suddenly appear out of nowhere and disappear just as quickly? Why is the band never seen during the day? Why do they never need to eat? Rumours abound of the apocalypse coinciding with their reunion gig, fuelled by journalist Terence Pearl.
Author Chris Harrison has done his research and has a good insight into the workings of the music industry, but being an old rocker myself I would have liked more on-stage antics. However, the stage is set so to speak for a series of Toten Herzen novels, so maybe there will be some duck-walks and flying V’s ablaze in the next instalment?
Good rock escapism with more than a touch of blood and gore……
