Working Titles (11 Book Series)
From Book 1: In three interlocking stories, Dinika Amaral explores the fantasy and frustrations of post-colonial India. Weaving together the experiences of western visitors, the bustle of a contemporary Bombay marketplace, and figures from sacred Hindu texts, Amaral offers a mercurial, dreamlike vision of Bombay in the twenty-first century: ancient, global, chaotic, dazzling.

THOUSANDS are dying inside.

HIDDEN under the burning Arizona desert is the grandest ‘Science-City’ ever created, and all hell is breaking loose. Using stolen genetic research, terrorists are unleashing a devastating attack on the civilian scientists, on their families, on their children. No one is spared.

BARELY one hundred and fifty souls survive the first seven minutes. Injured and wounded, limping or carried, they are frantically battling from minute to minute for their very lives. The odds are stacked against them, but one thing is in their favor.

CAPTAIN Alexander Coleman is just minutes away, and he’s not coming alone. He commands a full platoon of Special Forces Marines. His estranged wife, Vanessa, and eight year old son, David, might still be alive in the besieged underground complex. The chance they both survived is slim, but that’s more than enough.

PURE HORROR awaits him, and a frantic race to control the most devastating weapons of mass-destruction ever created: Living weapons.

BUT ABOVE ALL, more important than anything else, Captain Alexander Coleman must save his family.

Special note: FAST has an active table of contents, is approximately 100,000 words, and displays seamlessly with Kindles and all other eBook reading devices.

Scruffy Series (2 Book Series)
Scruffy was one of 3 pups born after her mother was abandoned by her owner when the old terraced street where they lived was bulldozed to make way for a new development. Scruffy alone survived, only to be lost to the lonely and dangerous life of a stray, before being found and put in the Tuesday cage of a big-city dog pound . . . where strays only get one week to live.

It was there that the author, Jack Stoneley, a reporter for a national newspaper, saw Scruffy and determined to find her an owner. Jack's story appeared on the day Scruffy was due for execution – and his paper’s millions of readers refused to let the little dog die. Phone lines were jammed as 10,000 people called to ‘Save Scruffy’. Even the Air Force wanted her as a mascot, and people travelled for miles to queue outside her cell. When it was all over, miner’s son Derrick Davies was the lucky winner.

Jack was so moved he wrote Scruffy: the Tuesday Dog based on her life, with the help of Derrick who tells how Scruffy marked his life forever. Dubbed a classic for catching a dog’s-eye view of the world, Warner Brothers even made a cartoon film of it for TV, which can now be seen in 6 parts on YouTube.

This is a tragic, touching, but ultimately joyful tale of a dog abandoned to the lonely life of a stray. You will read it again and again, marvelling that the canine characters are so real.

'Scruffy is a classic for perfectly catching a dog's-eye view of the world.' -- Library Journal

'A heart-warming story for dog lovers everywhere . . . Full of fun and love.' -- Book Review Service

Jack Stoneley, a reporter and later national newspaper editor who loved animals as much (and sometimes more) than he loved humans, is the author of a number of other books, including Jenny’s War, another true story, about a mother, Jenny Baines, who goes in search of her son who was shot down over Germany in the Second World War. Jenny’s War was made into a series for ITV, starring Dyan Cannon, Nigel Hawthorne, Robert Hardy Christopher Cazenove and Hugh Grant.

The Animal Kids’ Books Series (11 Book Series)
From Book 1:

Sea Turtles is the first in a series of books exploring the animal kingdom using both words and amazing pictures of animals.

The world of animals

Animals come in all shapes and sizes and include mammals, birds, fish, reptiles and amphibians. And, whether we are talking about wild animals or their more familiar domestic counterparts, we are looking at a fascinating world that you can spend a lifetime exploring, and only scratch the surface.

Sea Turtles - Amazing Pictures and Animal Facts Everyone Should Know looks at what many people consider to be weird sea creatures. It would however perhaps be more accurate to describe them as prehistoric sea creatures, because they represent some of the oldest living creatures known today. The relatively small number of endangered sea turtles that share this planet with us today are the most amazing animals, and this book of animal facts and animal pictures contains a wealth of information about these intriguing air-breathing reptiles.

With an ancestry dating back to the early days of the dinosaurs here on earth, the book looks at the life of 7 of the world's oldest and most incredible creatures:

  • The king of the marine turtles - the leatherback sea turtle.
  • The stunningly beautiful hawksbill sea turtle.
  • The big-headed loggerhead sea turtle.
  • The grazing green sea turtle.
  • The heart-shaped olive Ridley sea turtle.
  • The Australian sea turtle - the flatback.
  • The baby of the marine turtles - the Kemp's Ridley.

After a lifetime spent studying the animal kingdom at first hand as she has traveled the globe, Ann Lawrence brings the world of these marine creatures to life with some of the most amazing pictures you will find anywhere.
