I write books. You can find some of them here.

For most of my life I’ve wanted to be an author. The chance of success in this field is, roughly speaking, zero. This hasn’t dissuaded me from pursuing this ambition, it just suggests I probably shouldn’t bet my life on it. Actually writing books is a good place to start. Making people read them is the hard part.

 

Operation Green Canary

Operation Green Canary

“I am at war with my mind. Not long ago, I didn’t exist. But here I am, in the body of someone I can’t stand, and I don’t know what to do.”

Anton Salvage used to have one personality.

Now he has two.

In one half of his mind lies a ruthless government agent bordering on insanity.

In the other, a timid intellectual who has no knowledge of his identity or past, replaced by an unhealthy obesession with the music of Gustav Mahler.

Both will soon become entangled in a global crisis brought about by a message concealed within music. Only by learning to cooperate do they stand any chance of victory.

 

Operation Green Canary has been an ongoing project of mine for the past two years. In December of 2015 I completed the first draft, likely a confusing mess of plot holes and redundant adverbs, as all first drafts should be. It should have spluttered and died, and would have if I hadn’t been absent-mindedly thinking about it one day only to imagine a far more elegant solution to the final climactic scene. The drive to see that scene in a tangible form rekindled my interest, and here I am.

Don’t expect anything too soon. Next comes the arduous process of editing and rewriting, which will itself take months. After that…I don’t know. We’ll have to see. Rest assured the tale of two Anton Salvages will some day be something I can be proud of. See you then.
