  • Just Say Know – The Inconvenient Truth About Drugs * Part 1

    The topic of drugs is almost unrivaled when it comes to generating controversy. It’s becoming increasingly difficult to sort fact from fiction, to talk to our children, and understand why drugs exist in society the way they do today.

    Just Say Know covers everything you need to know about drugs, including the checkered history of many drugs, why we choose to ban some yet promote others, and the challenges that society face if we want to have a more pragmatic approach in reducing harm. Part one of Just Say Know looks at all of the areas we have gone wrong, where we continue to go wrong, and why.

    Part two covers what we can do as a society to dig ourselves out of this hole. This book provides parents with what they need to tell their children, teachers and lecturers with what they need to tell their students, and what society needs to tell themselves as well who they elect.

  • Life and a Glass of Milk

    This book is about life through the eyes of a child. It is an amalgamation of thoughts and experiences of a young writer who wants to grow up fast so that he can be independent to discover the world in-depth and what lies within… though when he is grown he will weep on the “good old days.”

    Pages of Nostalgia,
    Said the man as he smiled
    As he shed nostalgic tears
    Rolling to his parched lips
    Quenching a portion of his thirst
    Reminding himself of his thorough childhood
    Memories, familiar faces,
    Fiendish but friendly acts of
    Affection and devotion to those he loved
    And what was more, he dreamt
    Of his outlooks on life
    It was as if he had his current life
    while sipping a glass of milk –
    Life through the eyes of a child
    – Vansh Sharma

  • Mary’s Ireland

    Mary’s Ireland is a love story between an Irish barmaid and a Polish sailor. From a working class Catholic family of nineteenth century Belfast, Mary Cannon meets Walenty Nikodemski in her pub, The Shamrock. Initially, Mary is taken by Walenty’s looks especially his eyes, which shine jade black ‘seeing right through me to the very white of my skin’. With attraction battling suspicion Mary gradually sees more deeply into the character, family and home of Walenty, or Nikoda, as sailors call him. Mary never gains the full picture.

    Mary’s largely Catholic Ireland under centuries of Protestant British rule is compared to Nikoda’s Poland under centuries of Tsarist Russian occupation. Fighting hardship with family humour, love and their Catholic faith, the Cannons confront poverty, war, famine, corruption, violence, disease, death and family break up. From a peasant background, Nikoda’s family endures similar hardships also accepting them as a normal part of life, once again buoyed by Catholicism, long banned by the Russian Tsars.

    These cultural similarities include bigotry, which is often based on self-serving fabrications. Mary’s Ireland reflects on this bias through the troubles between the Protestants and Catholics of Belfast, the lives of Jews, nationalism and religion. The Cannons and Nikodemskis bring their prejudices, bravado and egos to the traumas of Crimean War of 1853–1856, the subsequent Russian-Turkish war of 1877-1878 and the battles on Belfast’s streets. Wealth, poverty and power breed the bias and underpin the novel, governing life from food, clothing and housing through work and education to religious and political freedom.

    Encased in historical events and settings, Mary’s Ireland enshrines the human capacity to survive hardships and indeed flourish within them, ‘turning donkeys into racehorses’.

    Mary’s Ireland is the first of a trilogy with Mary’s Poland and Mary’s War.
