Be moved! Be inspired! Be encouraged!

Here is the true and honest story of a man who out of the blue fell victim to oesophageal cancer in mid-life and fought back. He takes the reader from his incomprehension at the moment of diagnosis, to his bewilderment, then acceptance, the battle and finally the all-clear. He does not spare us the disappointments, pain, loneliness and much more!

“A very powerful account of one man's journey through the complex NHS system after being diagnosed with cancer. Never losing his sense of humour throughout you will find this book both fascinating and insightful. The author is very relatable which kept me hooked right from the start.”
Shirley Harvey

"I could not put it down. I didn't expect a book about cancer to make me laugh out loud, but it did. The humour lightened the mood while still telling the story. The author has managed to find the right balance between conveying their personal experience/opinions while remaining non-judgemental. The author is very open and honest and takes you on his personal journey to beat cancer. It provides an in-depth look at the good, bad and ugly side of cancer. There are some helpful and handy tips that some may find useful when trying to come to terms with fighting the disease. An excellent read with a dash of humour thrown in for good measure makes this an essential book for everyone who is either going through cancer treatment and/or  friends/family who want to provide the right support for  them."

Shirley Harvey

"This book is a honest account of one man's journey from diagnosis and subsequent recovery from cancer. Don't be put off by the title, it's not all gloom and doom. I had thought it was going to be sad and serious but this is not the case. It's honest, funny and informative."

Full of twists and turns... a must read. - LibraryThing Early Reviewer

I loved this book! Think Agatha Christie meets Sherlock Holmes and you're got it. Loved the Olde English charm from the setting of the book to the characters. The author grabs you from the first page.
The author takes you to a country home in Surrey, where Witton Park is located. It is a elegant home owned by Walter Sinnet, a not so nice man who has made his fortune by conning everyone around him. He has built this estate to be extremely lavish with man made lakes and an underwater folly smoking room. The Sinnet's are having a party with some interesting guests, one of which will be his demise. Everyone is a suspect when Walter is found floating above his own folly dead. Who would want him dead? The better question should be who wouldn't want him dead. All the guests have a reason to want him dead, even his wife. Yikes! In comes Inspector Marcus Thomas and the bumbling Constable Turner. They are there to try and figure out what is going on at the estate. Inspector Thomas's son James even tries to get in on the action since he is off school. Will they be able to flush out the killer before he or she leaves Witton Park scott free???
This book gives you a great mystery and who dunit as well as a fun adventure full of twists and turns. I didn't know who the killer was till the very end! I was shocked. This is a must read.

The Author
Having always had a love for English, Salema qualified to teach it as a foreign language and then went abroad to work in Lebanon. She taught adults at a language centre and eventually ended up helping at a school on the site of an orphanage where she met her husband. She wrote about the plight of the orphans and the article was published in the centre-spread of a Christian newspaper.   
Salema has been obsessed with whodunits since she was a teenager and was challenged to write her own by her sister Jess. Not knowing where to start she took herself off to college to do a crime writing course with published crime authors Lesley Thomson and Elly Griffiths and hasn’t looked back since.
She currently lives in West Sussex where she takes care of her husband, two children and two cats (not necessarily in that order!).

Review of Fierce Thunder by 'Mountain Biking 4 Her'*

I will admit that I am not a huge action novel reader, so I may have started out with less enthusiasm than your average reader.  I was in it for the bikes. However, after getting to know the characters in the introductory chapters, I was eager to see what would unfold.
Fierce Thunder reads like an action movie--you can't help but envision the adventures. By the time the characters were deep in the forest of Mexico I was tempted to make myself some popcorn 'cause I knew I wasn't going to be able to put the book down until I finished. Jackie and Courtney's experience in the movie biz has obviously given them the ability to grab people hook line and sinker. Great characters making tough choices in a jungle filled with danger....ON BIKES! What could be better?
