Electric Memory

The A to Z of Education was written under the pen name Chris O’Kalan and is a
satirical look at the British Education System.

Corrupted Memories is the second reprint of my poetry collection and contains
160 poems and a short story.

Electric Memories is a collection of fifteen (trueish) short stories.

Bum-Rap is a chapbook and you can download it for free on my Chap-book page.

42 Liverpool Poems is just that; a chap-book.

Island Poems are also just that, poems from the Isle of Man.

Groups is my first novel; a story set slightly in the future about anarchy in the UK.

Glimpses of Notes is a 25,000 word autobiographical poem currently with a publisher.
