Q Magazine - - Q Book -

KALGOORLIE SYN­OP­SIS

James and Miceal globe trot the world. Fate crosses their path. Mys­tery and a bit of may­hem see them meet­ing up with Gen­eral Knowles. This leads to them hook­ing up with Alice, a rather tough old girl. Blake and John en­ter the story early on and form part of the core of the team. James and Miceal's love story grows and grows. Alice meets the love of her life, Ceila. Gen­eral Knowles is Ceila's com­man­der-in-chief. Knowles al­lows it to hap­pen af­ter as­sign­ing Ceila on a mis­sion with Alice, turn­ing a blind eye to the blos­som­ing ro­mance. A few shoot outs and car chases ex­pose the key guilty par­ties, rak­ing in mil­lions of US dol­lars through fraud and money laun­der­ing. Once the story breaks, all hell breaks loose.

ROMA SYN­OP­SIS

James and Miceal head to Rome for a hol­i­day af­ter the stress­ful time in the field of jour­nal­ism out­ing some se­ri­ous crim­i­nals and mak­ing some life time friends. An in­no­cent party sets James's red alerts alight. A few mo­bile calls and the Aus­tralian team and Knowles are en route. The Ital­ian Mafia are no roll over. Game on to find Capo di Tuti. Hu­man be­ings are not there to be abused and not on a sex­ual level. They spring into step. The rest is a trail of in­trigue as they un­cover Capo di Tuti, the head of the Mafia.

ABOUT THE AU­THOR

d.s. Eliot spent ten years of his life in semi-re­tire­ment, build­ing pre­pos­ter­ously large struc­tures, teach­ing him­self the art of cheese mak­ing. How not to make bad whiskey and gin crafted in the old back yard, be­fore re­tir­ing to pur­sue his true pas­sion: writ­ing fic­tion.

He re­leased his first novel, “Kalgoorlie”, in De­cem­ber of 2017. It be­came the first book in the James and Miceal Se­ries, that is fly­ing off the shelves. The plan is to trans­late the book into 5 lan­guages, and to also de­velop a screen play for a ma­jor mo­tion pic­ture.

The sec­ond novel, “Roma”, fol­lows James and Miceal to Rome, where d.s.Eliot hol­i­dayed with his late mother and now hus­band. A won­der­ful bond­ing with a hard­work­ing teacher, his mother had lived life in the small town where he was born. Roma was re­leased in March 2018.

His third novel, “Duras”, is al­most com­plete and will also be re­leased in 2018. As al­ways d.s.Eliot al­ways goes to base, a small vil­lage in the south of France that by chance he vis­ited near half his age. It was a cold win­ter hol­i­day, but very much joy­ous. An in­fa­mous castle ‘in­va­sion' not be­known to the own­ers at the time, is a hi­lar­i­ous story, he will share with you if ever you meet.

James and Miceal don't let up there and d.s.Eliot fol­lows up with the next of the se­ries now un­der devel­op­ment, “Sit­ges”. He has also be­gun plan­ning for his fifth novel. Some of the drafts of “Nairobi” are be­ing penned on the odd break.

No mat­ter where he is, or what's go­ing on, he tries his best to set aside time ev­ery day to an­swer emails and mes­sages from read­ers.
