Heaven Nor Hell

Three journalism students stumble across something that could change the world. In the process, they make enemies of the Prime Minister and every pharmaceutical company on the planet - who all want what the students have - and of The Vatican, which would do everything in its power to stop the students' investigations.Three journalism students stumble across something that could change the world. In the process, they make enemies of the Prime Minister and his mysterious Special Envoy, and of every pharmaceutical company in the world, who all want access to the formula for The Eternal Drug. Also threatening the students is The Vatican, which needs people to continue believing in Heaven and Hell.This quirky comedy-drama is based in Adelaide (South Australia) and includes various themes that interest and concern me, including the power of big businesses, especially pharmaceutical companies and The Vatican; the blind belief of religious people; and the corruption of governments.

Cinnamon Sweat

A no-hit group from the 1970s called Cinnamon Sweat performs at a virtual ghost town for Deb, the band’s original and now only member of its fan club. While the event is being broadcast live online for a reality-style website, the producers focus on Deb’s personal issues rather than The Big Story: what happened to the band's original guitarist during that fateful tour of 1975?A no-hit group from the 1970s called Cinnamon Sweat performs at a virtual ghost town for Deb, the band’s original and now only member of its fan club. While the event is being broadcast live online for a reality-style website, the producers focus on Deb’s personal issues rather than The Big Story: what happened to the band's original guitarist during that fateful tour of 1975? This quirky comedy-drama is set in a (fictitious) one-dog town called Chittingford Dales in rural South Australia. The book incorporates things I know and love, such as 1970s music and my home state; and topics that interest me, such as webcasting and filming. Besides the band members Trevor, Nigel and Cockles, the myriad of whacky characters include Madge, who runs the pub; Arnold, an octogenarian railway conductor; Gladys, a former groupie, now with a Zimmer frame; and Lifeless Cyril. The book is based on a movie script I wrote and is very short (only 70 pages), which is why it's free.
