4 - 6 days availability
Tobias Grave and Morven Strike have nothing in common, or so it would seem. A punk rock legend in his thirties who's had a poverty stricken life on the streets, plagued by a drink and drug problem, and a teenage girl, who, well, has had a pretty normal life so far. Just doesn't seem right does it? Yet it works, somehow, for a while at least, until it all comes crashing down. You can open this memoir of a punk rock lifestyle almost at any point and be entertained by touching stories of Tobi and his band of street punks or harrowing accounts of drug and alcohol abuse. Tobi has had to overcome some huge trials in his life but see how this hardened die hard punk will cope when he looses the love of his life to a group of racist, nazi skin heads.
Raven Michelle Taylor (born Michelle Allen) was born in South Shields, Tyneside in 1983 and was the first of three children of Julie and Brian Allen. Following the numerous closures of ship yards on the Tyne Raven moved with her family to Scotland at age 13 where they settled in the Lanarkshire town of Cumbernauld. After the separation of her parents following the move north Raven and her siblings where raised by her Mother Julie. Raven attended Cumbernauld High School and from there went on to Paisley University where she graduated with an honors degree in Computer Animation. Since university to the present day Raven has made a living working various jobs in the office and retail industries but she hopes one day to be able to write full time, a dream she has held since she was a very small girl writing stories on her all Patel typewriter. Raven still lives in Scotland with her husband, Gerry Neary, their dog Basil, cockatiel Brody and tortoise Herman. Raven met Glasgow born Gerry in 2002 when she was 19 years old and the pair married in 2007 opting for a Wiccan Handfasting ceremony in the Niddry Street Vaults in Edinburgh. Raven has written a number of books, short stories and poems and has been doing so since she first learned to pick up a pen and form words. It has always been a dream of hers to be a published author and she has only just recently taken the first steps towards this dream by finally taking the plunge and deciding to self publish her work both as e-books on Amazon's Kindle store and as paper-backs through Create Space. She has chosen her 'Dark Angles' series as her first venture into publishing believing these to be her strongest works. She is currently working between more books in these series and revising some of her older work.
