about me

Hello! I have been writing for a couple of years, and have completed two novels and a third and fourth are underway.
I also write short stories for competitions, so that judges can say unpleasant things about them.
I live in the Cotswolds, though that might be about to change, with two elderley dogs and no money. Oneday, writing might pay.

JJ Spillane

Is holding a dog’s severed ear in your hand the result of one person’s depravity, or a catalyst, supplanting self-loathing with fortitude and purpose?

When Jake, demoralised by the amputation of his leg, surprises himself by befriending a vagrant, he can little suspect the key to the man’s past lies in his own rural idyll on the Jurassic Coast. Here too, a confused young Irishman, with an unusual gift of communication with animals, comes to terms with his violent past and his sexuality. Rosa, who was beginning to wonder if she was paying the price for hastening her husband’s death, finds befriending the young man brings unexpected consequences. And then the sordid business of disappearing dogs comes to their door.
