Monster Hunter Extraordinaire (2 Book Series)
From Book 1:

** Get The Rot and Death free at" for a limited time only (copy and paste link into your browser) **

Monster Hunter Extraordinaire. Or at least that's what the card says...

My name’s Hugo. I live in a tiny house with my buddy Medium Mac and our adorable little Hellhound Rover. People pay me for what I would consider pretty menial work, but I suppose all of us have to pay the bills somehow.

Did I mention I hunt monsters for a living?

Okay, maybe hunting is a bit strong of a word. Then again, I’m the only one in the city doing this kind of work. It doesn’t matter if I know what I’m doing or not. In my expertise, it’s all trial and error. You think learning that vampires don’t like garlic was deliberate? Or that wooden stakes are the only things that can kill them? As I’ve learned, desperation can sometimes yield just what you were looking for.

Life was going pretty okay until I took a case from a mysterious old man. Rather than extort and ridiculously overcharge him, I may have inadvertently released a paycheck-affecting, interdimensional, border-jumping monster menace of Turipads, hell-bent on overthrowing my entire city. Looks like this case is going to need a lot more than simply a, “Whoops, my bad” to fix.

It’s time for me to become the pay-by-the-hour hero this city needs.

Beauty and the Mustache: A Philosophical Romance (Winston Brothers Book 1)
This is a full-length novel, can be read as a standalone, and is the fourth book in the 'Knitting in the City' series.

There are three things you need to know about Ashley Winston: 1) She has six brothers and they all have beards, 2) She is a reader, and 3) She knows how to knit.

Former beauty queen, Ashley Winston’s preferred coping strategy is escapism. She escaped her Tennessee small town, loathsome father, and six brothers eight years ago. Now she escapes life daily via her Amazon kindle one-click addiction. However, when a family tragedy forces her to return home, Ashley can’t escape the notice of Drew Runous— local Game Warden, bear wrestler, philosopher, and everyone’s favorite guy. Drew’s irksome philosophizing in particular makes Ashley want to run for the skyscrapers, especially since he can’t seem to keep his exasperating opinions— or his soulful poetry, steadfast support, and delightful hands— to himself. Pretty soon the girl who wanted nothing more than the escape of the big city finds she’s lost her heart in small town Tennessee.

The travel diaries of John Dot: Margate (Mid Life Backpacker Book 1)

He wants her back. But not everything in life goes to plan, especially for him...

It's make or break time for John Dot!

John Dot is determined to woo Olivia back and nothing will get in his way. Except himself. John is clueless about love and he is no Casanova. He is short, overweight with average looks. She is tall, slim and beautiful. His idea of a romantic weekend away is a weekend in Margate, England. Staying in a 3.5 rated hotel, he knows he is taking a risk but this is wooing on a budget, his budget.

He knows he blew it last time and he needs to keep his depression and anxiety in check. But how will he cope with a suicidal Transformer toddler, an expensive meal for two and an unexpected wedding party. Margate is a town at war with itself, just like John. As John navigates his way through the weekend and the challenges it throws at him, will he manage to win back the love of his life or will he, cock it up, again, as usual.

The Travel Diaries of John Dot: Margate is the laugh out loud first book, a FREE short story, in the Mid Life Backpacker Comedy Book Series. This is travel writing with a difference. If you love British dark humor, funny misadventures and sadness in equal measures, with a bit of comedy travel and laugh out loud romantic comedy thrown in as well, then you’ll love Kevin Kelly’s incredibly funny and intimate take on a mid-life man’s misadventures as he makes his way through life, relationships and travels. The Travel Diaries of John Dot is British contemporary comedy at its best.

˃˃˃ Interview with the Author

The Author who is definitely not John Dot, despite being the same age, looking exactly the same and visiting the same places as John Dot, is called Kevin Kelly.

Q) Were you a creative writer as a child?

A) To be honest the most creative, I got as a child was forging my mother’s signature on my homework book. Sorry Mum.

Q) Have you always wanted to be a writer?

A) I have harboured the ambition to write a novel, since my mid-30s, which coincidentally is when I had my first mid-life crisis. But life and all its distractions got in the way, until now when I have started to get my shit together. Which is probably a good thing seeing as I’m now 48 years old.

Q) What do you hope to achieve with your book.

A) I want to entertain the reader, make them smile and hopefully laugh out loud too. As well as talk about issues that are normally hidden beneath the surface of modern life. Such as mental illness, mid-life crisis, the inner workings of a male, middle-aged mind and throwing in how a man copes with all this, whilst trying to keep things together as well as have a relationship on top of that.

Q) Why Mid Life Backpacker?

A) John is middle-aged and I wanted to explore all the themes above in the context of John travelling to different places. Plus, I wanted to use my own experiences of the places I have visited and hopefully in due course, get some money back to pay for them. Along the way, I hope the readers will also find out a bit about the places John Dot visits too.

Q) So, this is the first of many books then?

A) Yes, the next book, based on Thailand is due to be released Tuesday 12 September 2017 and I have several more books planned.

Q) Are you, John Dot, then?

A) Ok, that’s a stupid question, from a stupid interviewer. John Dot is fictitious. My agent warned you before the interview if you raised that question, then the interview will end.

Q) I’m sorry, John, I mean Kevin, please come back and finish the interview. Please, I promise not to ask the question again.

Louisiana Longshot (A Miss Fortune Mystery, Book 1)
It was a hell of a long shot....

CIA assassin Fortune Redding is about to undertake her most difficult mission ever—in Sinful, Louisiana. With a leak at the CIA and a price placed on her head by one of the world's largest arms dealers, Fortune has to go off-grid, but she never expected to be this far out of her element. Posing as a former beauty queen turned librarian in a small bayou town seems worse than death to Fortune, but she's determined to fly below the radar until her boss finds the leak and puts the arms dealer out of play. Unfortunately, she hasn't even unpacked a suitcase before her newly inherited dog digs up a human bone in her backyard.

Thrust into the middle of a bayou murder mystery, Fortune teams up with a couple of seemingly sweet old ladies whose looks completely belie their hold on the little town. To top things off, the handsome local deputy is asking her too many questions. If she's not careful, this investigation might blow her cover and get her killed. Armed with her considerable skills and a group of elderly ladies the locals dub The Geritol Mafia, Fortune has no choice but to solve the murder before it's too late.
