Welcome Ian, let's hope we can help each other! My fourth novel is out ( it's taken YEARS to find a publisher for this one) I am now 87,000 words into the sequel. Wish me luck! I write under the name of Elizabeth Revill. This website is new to me too. I raise a glass to both of us. Cheers!

Ian, welcome to  …from The Chuck!
               I write sci-fi novels filled with adventure, mystery, romance, drama, horror, and comedy… Sci-fi for every human to enjoy. I'm also a published poet. When you have a few free moments, please check out my Authors page and a few of my videos and blogs I have recently added. Many of my blogs consist of free to read enjoyable sci-fi stories I plan to unite within a book titled: 'Epic Marvels. My newest sci-fi novel: 'They!', which is somewhat related to the 1954 sci-fi classic movie, 'Them!'.

Let me know if you'd like to become friends.

The Chuck!

Good day everyone, and thank you for the welcomes.

I have been writing stage plays for 20+ years and currently have 37 published and performed throughout the world. My website has details, photos, etc. if anyone's interested.

I have written something like 18 short novels that are best described as "adult" - not my first choice but it helps to pay bills! These have been published as paper and ebooks under four noms-de-plume.

My most important project (to me at least) is a full length crime thriller (150,000 words or so) I've called "Time to Kill", which is a well-researched, but fictional, book about a couple of serial killers. It was accepted as a launch title by a company called Arcturus a while ago, for their new crime imprint but, ultimately, they decided not to go ahead with the imprint (it being quite different from their core business of children's books, cookbooks, puzzle book and so on). At least it gave me the confidence that it's good enough, and I have 2 sequels in the framework stage. I'm just wading through the world looking for an agent and/or publisher now! Any advice much appreciated.

Hi Ian, cant seem to get to your website via the link you've posted.

OUTBREAK | Released Date Pending

The world is plunged into chaos as a deadly virus spreads across the globe, killing millions in its wake. Is the 'outbreak' the long awaited epidemic foretold or something far more sinister?

As society crumbles, a New World Order is born. Those deemed to be infected are mercilessly destroyed in an attempt to halt the spread of the virus or so we are led to believe.

The reality is beyond comprehension as, Dan Lucas, an ex-royal navy communications expert and Jon Derrer, a specialist police firearms officer, fight against the rampant madness that spreads across the UK. With help from beyond the grave, will they be able to right the wrongs of a world plunged into insanity or will they perish in the process?

Outbreak is a fast moving, paranormal, action thriller that keeps you gripped to the very end.


Coming Soon... 
Not since the days of the Yorkshire Ripper has death stalked the streets of Northern England spreading fear among the population.

Based several years in the future, after the re-introduction of the death penalty for murder, the story tracks a serial killer known as the 'Double Slasher', as he's brought to justice by DCI Haimer and his team of homicide detectives.

The tale follows the accused from bloody murders to the trial at Crown Court and the inevitable verdict.

Sean Solomon weaves a tale of - did he, didn't he? - that sways the readers' judgement one way and then the other, in a strange sympathetic rollercoaster ride of emotion.

As ever, look out for the unseen twist in the tale that will take your breath away!
