“THE BILLY CAN BOMB” – TRILOGY
Publication Date: April 9, 2014
Publisher: Summer Solstice Publishing (April 9, 2014)
Kindle and Paper Back Edition out now!
Billy Day is an emotionally intelligent teenager – though with self-doubt and a troubled history – living in a rundown district with his lone parent father; ex-army, ex-prisoner. Close to his father Billy’s familiar with the realities of life.
The Billy Can Bomb opens with Billy viciously attacked. Kevin Knight intervenes to rescue him. Despite their differing backgrounds, Kevin is affluent, high achieving middle class, Caribbean, they instantly click.
The Billy Can Bomb adventure follows the two tracking down a gang selling drugs in their town. As the story unfolds Billy’s positive relationship with his father comes alive. Billy constantly wonders how his father, who served in Northern Ireland, acted facing extreme danger. This is answered when Billy reacts instinctively to confront the drug gang to better them.
Billy and Kevin’s character differences are probed when they discuss how to catch the pushers. Kevin sees everything in personal terms, whereas for Billy it’s a game of outwitting King, the drug gang leader.
Nor is it about revenge, rather, devising strategies to overcome the gang’s willingness to use force.
Awakening into maturity Billy’s determined no one was going to defeat him. His father, with special forces training was, sure enough, inside of him, speaking softly, directing his actions.
“THE MONESSE MYSTERY” Volume II and “WHEN THE STRING BREAKS” Volume III of the Trilogy are soon to be released.
PART II COVER SOON TO BE ADDED!

COMMENTARY BY: firstname.lastname@example.org
Wheelchair Warriors web adv1 – Please do try them!!! ”
Ponderous Maxine lobbed her Molotov cocktail into Kilkeith House with venomous satisfaction. Big John, commandeering the builder’s digger, has laid waste its extensive gardens. In the near distance the Farm Estate is aflame; rioters wreaking revenge against police brutality. Monica Wormange, head of Kilkeith’s independence training unit, lies dead in her bunker, phone clutched in her charred hand. Her boys and girls, as Monica referred to Kilkeith’s physically disabled young adults, had finally revolted against her capricious, authoritarian regime.
Joey Cribb, a six foot five Liverpool criminal and Kilkeith volunteer, had teamed up with local councillor Joshua Mukomo, a political refugee from Zimconga. Together they help residents’ fight back following Monica’s forced medication of Hyacinth for sleeping with Simon, a fellow wheelchaired resident. Rumours about Hyacinth’s mis-treatment, galvanise the community to organise a vigil outside Kilkeith. Following Hyacinth’s hospitalisation residents plan their own just retribution.
Wheelchair Warriors, part based on real events, is a story of courage and resilience by individuals too often excluded from mainstream society by fear and prejudice.
