Alfie and Reid: A Fine Partnership Indeed is a fun children’s story written in verse and wonderfully illustrated to delight readers both young and old. A timid mouse finds himself beholden to the will of a curious lion. If Alfie can overcome his fear, new adventures and an unlikely friendship with a grand lion might follow!
A policeman’s lot is not a happy one or so the song goes, but throw in the IRA, loyalist paramilitaries, the British army and a Republican hunger strike, and it gets a whole lot worse. Carson Clarke, Jim Reid and their colleagues in the RUC are charged with policing a provincial town in Derry, arguably the most dangerous environment in the developed world. They're trained to deal with car accidents and shoplifters, but history and politics just keep getting in the way as a series of shootings and bombings bring Northern Ireland to the brink of civil war. Their job gradually becomes a struggle to survive, and just keeping sane gets difficult as, bit by bit, their world collapses around them. Written with the authenticity of someone who served as a police officer in Northern Ireland at the time, and who lived through and experienced similar events. This book was also written very close in time to the historical events and carries the authenticity of the dialogue and thinking employed by the characters.

A book with true life stories and poems that have been fictionalised. Some themes have a disturbing aura of sex, violence and abuse of women and children. Other stories are full of love and romance, where some themes have comedic properties and adult language and scenes that are not suitable for children and under 18s. Other stories have themes of gang culture or the occult and the devil, which may be disturbing to some readers. All of these creations are purely and completely from the author. Influences that created the different ideas are from her native Glaswegian upbringing in various Glasgow inner city townships, including, Dennistoun, Maryhill, The Gorbals, The Milton, Easterhouse, Carntyne, Ruchazie, Garthamlock, the East End of Glasgow in Shettleston where she worked as a secretary, in Baillieston where she was a bar-maid and in the city and Lanarkshire where she worked as a recruitment consultant, works administrator and senior journalist for Trinity Mirror and Media Scotland.
