British Voices tells the story of Joe Hayman’s travels around the UK in the aftermath of the 2011 riots, speaking to over 1,000 members of the public about the state of British society – an approach unique amongst contemporary studies of the UK. Hayman undertook the three-month journey because he wanted the voices of ordinary citizens in Britain to be heard. Their views are reproduced faithfully and without judgment in this book and include: “It feels like the country is drifting; no one knows what to do.” Pensioner, Birmingham “If the politicians and bankers aren’t held accountable, the apathy extends across the whole country.”Student, Bangor“When I was young, we used to go out and kick a ball but it's all PlayStations now. We had three roads, but now it's a town and you have no idea who people are.” Man, Shetland Isles “It’s all moving at an astonishing pace now – strangely, my teenage years were actually much more peaceful in spite of the Troubles.” Woman, Belfast Tying these views together, Hayman concludes that the UK is a nation of kind, decent people but that confusion, loss and despair are all too common. British Voices is an uncompromising analyisis of the most pressing concerns of people at all levels of British society, that will appeal to those interested in politics and current affairs.

Jack Pierce, a down and out writer, has retreated from society to the sanctuary of the mountains above Leadville, Colorado. To his astonishment, an old lover, Miranda Talbot, a poet and faith healer from Texas, arrives at his house shortly after the death of his live-in girlfriend and proceeds to inspire him to write a biography about the recently deceased Yale Nobel Prize recipient Theodore Hudson. Reluctant at first, he eventually succumbs to her charms and sets off for New Haven, Connecticut on a wild ride with the esoteric Miranda that could be the turning point in his miserable life. There he and Miranda learn about Hudson’s past and must wrestle with the moral dilemma this information presents. Bread of Shame is about the beauty of truth when the larger picture is finally glimpsed and made to benefit seeker and savior and all those in between. The novel speaks to what it is to be an artist and a human being in a world where perception is obscured by human need, and knowledge is ambiguous and conflicted. Finally, it is about what it takes to live and love and write. “Miranda’s and Jack’s determination to discover the truth about themselves and others adds layers of interest to a well-wrought mystery. Engaging and moving... the language is poetic and deliberate.” Kirkus Reviews

The three huge rocks rose from the bay of the tiny Scottish fishing village of Cullen. The locals called them 'The Three Kings', but to orphaned Katie Mair they were 'The Three Wise Men', her trusted friends and the only ones to whom she could tell her troubles. And as she leaves her childhood behind, her troubles can only increase. At fourteen, she is old enough to go into service, and her formidable grandmother has already found her a position. But the household, bleak and cut off at the Howe of Denty, is not as respectable as it first appears. And one desperate act of defence from Katie is to a start a chain of despair, passion and revenge.
