Excerpt from “Thumper’s Great Escape”: “How sweet life was before my passing!  I was the toast of the town, the icing on the cake.  The ribbon in flowing hair; the most loved rabbit in the entire land.  Yes, I know I sound like I love myself, but so what!  I’m un-dead.  I think I am allowed to say what I want.  After all, nobody loves me anymore.  I’m a forgotten pet.  I wasn’t even given a proper burial, unlike the cats and dogs in this house.  So now I roam around as an un-dead rabbit, because I was murdered!

Blogtour , Bookteaser / August 21, 2016

The Paradise Ghetto is the powerful new novel by Fergus O’Connell. As you know I am very interested in WW2 and all stories related to it. So I really like this novel for sure. A moving story about two young women deported to a German concentration camp   About the Book:  In 1944 two young Dutch women, Julia and Suzanne, are deported to the German concentration camp for so-called privileged Jews at Theresienstadt.

At first, their novel is just an escape an imaginary world into which they can withdraw and find comfort but as their story unfolds, it becomes the way they communicate their feelings to each other and, ultimately, confront their own demons. They become convinced that the war will end when they finish their story, but it is the frenzied last year of the Final Solution. As the darkness gathers around them, they find themselves in a race not just to finish the novel but to find a means of survival. The Paradise Ghetto is the story of two people whose lives are drawn together in unimaginable circumstances, and a reflection on the part that…

V4 Vengeance – The Jim Wilson Series #1
Bookreview / April 11, 2016

I received this book as an ARC requesting a review and I gladly accepted. V4 Vengeance has been self published in the past but will now be available through a publisher. Usually books about a subject like this are not my thing, but this one is an exception. It took me a few pages to get into the story, but once I got it I had to finish it in one go. The story is quite believable, the characters very well written and who doesn’t love a good mystery with hidden submarines, a man bent on destroying the world and a secret mission  looking for WW2 mysteries. I loved it !! Desperately seeking employment, recently discharged Royal Engineer Jim Wilson takes on an impossible challenge with the help of his former army mates, Ivan and Geordie.

Their discovery is beyond shocking: not only does the base exist—it contains secret submarines full of V2 rocket bombs. And they are not working for a museum. They are at the mercy of a notorious group of Russian mobsters, the…
