Know Thy Enemy

An artefact from the Baghdad National Museum could justify the coalition invasion of Iraq. But the artefact is among items looted from the Museum just before the invasion.

CIA Analyst, Emma Burrows enlists the help of Captain William Bradford and a small Joint Task Force 2 team to retrieve the artefact. Unknown to them, a mercenary unit led by Luc Fortesque is also after the stolen artefacts intending to sell them on the black market.

Know Thy Enemy is an eBook short that introduces two key characters from the full length thriller novel, The Apocalypse Trigger.

Impressions of Egypt

In November of 2010 I spent a little over a week in Egypt. I was fascinated and humbled by the history and culture of the country.

This travelogue isn't a picture-book; there are far better pictures available on the internet and in travel magazines than the thousand plus I clicked with my point-and-shoot.

It is all about the impressions, emotions and implications that no picture can convey, but something that can only be experienced when you bask in the glorious Mediterranean sun in Alexandria, are belittled by the sentinel pyramids at Giza, come to terms with the engineering feat of relocating Abu Simbel, appreciate the historic grandeur of the museum-city of Luxor, or relive the romance of the Nile as you drift past gently-swaying date palms and white-sailed feluccas.
