About the Author
Hi, I m a a Birmingham UK based based writer, blogger and adventurer I ve had a long and winding road towards becoming a writerhaving gathered together a great deal of material from my various occupations from academic to music producer My acceptance of the human condition and my interest in micro drama is fundamental to my writing basically, I m fascinated by people I write contemporary fiction and non fiction My work is somewhat hard to define in terms of a single style so I ve embraced the title of the Elusive Author.My writing has a tendency to include social commentary exploring issues using different genres I write about the drama of life whether this is consists of daily uncertainties, the unintended consequences of simple decisions or the major milestones that influence the world we live in.In my contemporary fiction, I tease away at the layers that surround people, looking for what shapes their feelings and actions I am particularly interested in how people react to the pressures and opportunities that face them what makes some people thrive, whilst others crumble In an increasingly complicated world, I write about the simple hopes and fears held by ordinary people and how twists of fate can change their lives for ever Outsiders feature prominently in my books.I take a poke at the ridiculous but damaging behaviours that still persist under the veneer of acceptability stereotyping, defensiveness and snobbishness for example My first contemporary fiction book The Pavement Gardener, is a story of upheaval, human frailty and self realisation It brings two young migrants together in London one Latvian and one Irish where they become embroiled in a plot for revenge The conclusion reminds the reader that we can never really predict how any particular event will change someone.The other key genre that I adopt, increasingly, is humour of the witty variety I sometimes work with my alter ego i.e he s me , Franklin Zebb, to write books that feature the funny, quirky and bizarre side of ordinary and extraordinary events I like to hover in the shadows of the most remotely amusing of situations, taking notes whenever I can, crafting tales that I hopes will bring forth a smile, even to the most botoxed of faces.My latest humorous book is Being Franklin Zebb , a book telling the story of Franklin s self imposed exile in a cave, whilst writing Odd Friends and Aliens Predictably, he attracts a faithful group of followers and curious observers, with whom he shares the remarkable stories of his life, thus far The story sees Franklin succeeding, by luck than judgement, in some key themes of social and cultural change of the past thirty plus years and rightfully claiming the title of Master of the Almost Believable This is a satirical book which draws on naivety and parody whilst it tumbles along I run a thought provoking and quite often amusing blog on my websitehttp nylanaseer.
