Welcome!

                                               

Thank you very much for visiting this web site. It's small, simple, fast to load, and without frills.

You've probably found this site because you've bought one of my books, or perhaps you've responded to an advertisement and you're looking for help with a manuscript you've written. Either way - you're welcome.

If you've read one of my books, I would very much appreciate your comments - good or bad. If you enjoyed it, please tell me - every author enjoys listening to unqualified praise! - but please also let me know if you didn't like it. If you can tell me where you think I'm going wrong it can only help me make the next book better, and that can only help me as a writer and you as a reader.

If you're trying to find an agent or a publisher, I may well be able to help. I am now offering a manuscript appreciation and critique service through this web site, and I'm also acting as a scout for a major London literary agent. For more details of this, just click on the 'Manuscript services' link.

Latest news

The fourth 'Richter' book - Timebomb - was published in hardback by Macmillan on 1st August 2008, at the same time as the paperback version of Foxbat was released. The fifth book in the series will be titled Payback, and should be available this summer. No cover image is available yet.

For people who've invested in the new Sony Reader, you might be aware that one of the partial ebooks included with the device was Foxbat, which has meant that this ebook was one of Macmillan's biggest sellers this winter. When Timebomb is released as a paperback in June this year, an ebook version of that novel will be released simultaneously.

Finally, on 7th September 2008 Michael Joseph/Penguin published Joint Force Harrier, and this will be released as a paperback (cover image below right) in May 2009.

     

I co-wrote this book with Commander Ade Orchard, Royal Navy. We decided to split our roles: he flew the Harrier in Afghanistan, got shot at and generally had a fairly uncomfortable time of it for a few months, and I sat drinking coffee and listening to him tell me what had happened. I think I had the easier job!

The link for this book is:

Joint Force Harrier hardback edition (Amazon.co.uk)

This is part of the jacket blurb:

'Recoil Four Seven, Roger. Look ahead of the river. To the south of it there's a small area of high ground with scattered vegetation and a track leading across it. That's where we are. We're taking heavy machine gun fire from the tree-line on the north bank. And we're pinned down. We can't go forward or back because there's no cover either side of our position. Until the bad guys are taken out, we're stuck here ...'

Damien Lewis has written five best-selling books that grab the reader by the throat and simply don't let go. He's had a fascinating career both as a writer and as a documentary film-maker, and I'm pleased to be able to call him a friend. He's without doubt one of my favourite authors, and I highly recommend his latest novel, Cobra Gold. To learn more about this book, and about his highly eventful life, please visit his website at:
