Brexit in Context
A book exploring the issues and ramifications of the United Kingdom vote to leave the European Union, but primarily focusing on the historical and social contexts that led to that vote.
It is planned for publication on the first anniversary of the referendum: 23 June 2017.
Further reflections on the Brexit negotiation process and its historical contexts will be posted to the book website BrexitInContext.com
Preserving Eternity has been withdrawn from sale as the planned trilogy of short novels is to become one long novel. It will also switch from a first person perspective to a third person one, which means that Preserving Eternity will be substantially re-written. The story of Preserving Eternity will remain the same, but it will be written from a narrator's point of view rather than that of the individual characters. The revised project is likely to appear in late 2017. The title of the new book is still under wraps.

An examination of some key turning points in Irish history that continue to have repercussions today. Scheduled for late 2018.
