about me

Len Deighton about “Blood Money”: “a first-class thriller”.

I am looking for a publisher or representation for my topical and thrilling novel, “Blasphemy!”, favourably received by my peers on Authonomy.

Contact: gill. azam@univ-tlse2.fr

A hard-working, dedicated, and disciplined writer, I have worked with two in-house editors for my published novels, “Blood Money” and “Flight to Pakistan”.

Both editors were satisfied working with me.

I can meet deadlines and other commitments.

An English lecturer in France, I wrote my Master's thesis on Mario Puzo and Doctoral dissertation on William Faulkner after serving in the French Foreign Legion.

My three non-fiction publications are “Jail Reforms”, “Army Reforms”, and “Winds of Change”.

Blasphemy!

Azam Gill

Little Muthkar's life is in mortal danger, caught in Pakistan’s lethal combination of class and communal conflict, inequality, intolerance, fundamentalism and jihad.


This is the story of two ill fated lovers, trapped in the dangerous world of the fallout from the Afghan Jihad in Pakistan.

Louisa Skimmer is a lecturer in English literature. An urban, middle class daughter of a distinguished police officer, she studies at Lahore's most prestigious ladies' college.

Piaro Masih learns trade craft at his father's feet. He inherits his rural family's role as a bandit and smuggler in the Punjab's heartland.

Can their love survive in the conflict between Islam and Christianity, caste and social class, East and West, theocracy and secularism?

Testing their limits, considering the condition of women in Pakistani society and the excesses of orthodoxy and fundamentalism, events race to a tragic and blasphemous conclusion.

The only witness is a child who must be protected.

Savanah Passion by Alan Chaput Vegetal & bestial images fade out to focus on cunningly placed pawns that promise an exciting, controlled game of chess.

Vengeance or Justice. The storyline is good and the characters interesting. You have observed life from close up, and can record a video scene. You have taken notes, but those are personal notes. You now need to submit to a critical audience. Although you may pay a proof reader, in doing so you w... view book

The Last Nephilum. Intriguing and catchy premise that seeks to synthesize received truth through illustration. A courageous and bold venture, accomplished by uwavering narrational authority that mixes fact, fiction belief and perception into a mapped shawl. Short, sharp sentences that do not w... view book

From Hugs to Kisses. Accessible narrative, peppery dialogue and a zany storyline make it a delightful read. Azam Gill "Blasphemy!" view book

The Oak Tower. Unhurried prose, appropriate to the story and its panoramic approach to time, describes scenes that convey a fine balance of illusion and reality over a sub-text that titillates thought. Backed. Azam Gill “Blasphemy!” view book
