Dave is a novelist, a screenwriter and a really excellent parallel parker. He lives in Melbourne with his partner and two crazy daughters. His debut novel, The Barista’s Guide to Espionage isn’t the first novel he’s written. Let’s call the other ones practice runs. A prolific writer, he spent a lot of time trying to break into the publishing world*. Dave isn’t a full time writer. He just has too much spare time on his hands. By day he’s a corporate stooge, by night he’s a (two finger) typing fool. He’s also an award winning filmmaker. A title that sounds much more impressive than it really is. He won a best comedy screenplay and cinematography award for one of the short films he wrote and directed, though at the time he didn’t really know what cinematography was. A completed screenplay is currently doing the rounds.
A nice comic styled novella just because.
From the Blurb:
A rookie spy. Europe on a knife edge. A distinct lack of coffee.
Eva Destruction is back in her first ever assignment. Straight out of the MI6 academy, Eva is on the trail of a supposedly dead fellow agent. It’s a nothing assignment given to a rookie, but when suicide bombers hit a NATO conference the mission is kicked into high gear. Eva chases a carnage of gunfire and explosions across Europe in search of the mysterious shadowy organization, ‘The Tempest’.
Read this one last week and spent most of the time reading it laughing.
From the Blurb:
"Him: But he did buy you a castle.
Her: That's okay I can build my own castle out of the fucks I no longer give."
Meet Eva Destruction, the only thing quicker than her mouth is her talent for getting into trouble. It’s true she’s always had an eye for a bad boy but when she falls for billionaire super-villain Harry Lancing, it seems that even Eva may have bitten off more than she can chew.
