NEWS: I'm really excited to announce that the first draft of "Evil Eye - A Lissa Blackwood Thriller", the opening book in my new series of post-Brexit Conspiracy Thrillers, has been completed!
Research for this book began towards the end of 2016, planning lasted until about May 2017, and this draft was completed in August 2018. I'm loving writing in this new genre and enjoying the adventures that these wonderful characters are having!
Book 2 should be completed more quickly as much of the initial preparation for the series is already in place. In the meantime I'm looking for beta readers for 'Evil Eye' and starting to think about seeking an agent to help me sell the books... exciting times!

The story begins just a few years after a very hard BREXIT, when the EU has collectively decided to punish the UK for leaving,
and the UK economy is in profound recession. A full-blown revolution is becoming possible as the people begin to blame ‘Europe’
for their suffering. With other nation states pressing on its borders, the UK lurches politically to the right, threatening to
leave NATO and pursue its own strong self-defence policies.
The final straw comes when the UK sees a competitive advantage in Agriculture which is then hampered by France blocking imports through its ports. The UK responds by taking control of the Channel Tunnel
and seizing part of the Nord -Pas-De-Calais coastline between Dunkirk, Calais, Boulogne, and inland as far as Saint-Omer. The UK and France, both nuclear-armed NATO members, are now almost at war. There are frequent border
clashes and the US is attempting to arbitrate a solution.
All of this is the contemporary window dressing for a Conspiracy that began during the Second World War, when a small group of extremely wealthy individuals saw an opportunity to use the outcome of the war to
consolidate global power for themselves. Acting behind the scenes of national governments, and now possessing more economic power than those states, these Players now pull the strings on every major event that happens
across the globe, from Trade to Terrorism, they are in charge.
It is the Players who have been manipulating global and regional events to drive disruption in Europe, because disruption creates further spaces for them to slip into and consolidate their power. They ultimately failed
to push Greece out of the EU in a GREXIT. They failed to divide France by arranging for the hard-right Front Nationale to be elected. But they have now split Europe with BREXIT. They are now massively stepping up
their campaign to seize power in Europe, with a wave of bio-terrorism planned that will throw the continent into chaos.
Despite everything, when the British Prime Minister’s Special Investigation Group learn of the risk that the Players represent, they will do anything to stop their attacks in Europe.
Lissa Blackwood is a thirty-one year old covert warfare specialist who describes herself as “a strong, fierce, woman warrior!”
Craig Ballard is her forty-two year old team leader. Married with two children, Ballard is a Special Boat Service sniper, explosives and survival expert.
Blackwood and Ballard are SIG’s top agents. With the whole of Europe standing against them, they’re in a race against time to stop The Players and save the lives of millions.
